FLASHBACK: "The Eucharist and the Church, body of the crucified and risen Christ, become the place of the energies of the Holy Spirit."
A Pontifical Council
The celebration of the eucharist reveals the divine energies manifested by the Spirit at work in the body of Christ.
b. The Spirit manifests Christ in his work as savior, the Gospel which is he himself. The eucharistic celebration is the anamnesis (the memorial) Truly, but sacramentally, the ephapax (the "once and for all") is and becomes present. The celebration of the eucharist is par excellence the kairos (proper time) of the mystery.
c. The Spirit transforms the sacred gifts into the body and blood of Christ (metabole) in order to bring about the growth of the body which is the church. In this sense the entire celebration is an epiclesis, which becomes more explicit at certain moments. The church is continually in a state of epiclesis.
d. The Spirit puts into communion with the body of Christ those who share the same bread and the same cup. Starting from there, the church manifests what it is, the sacrament of the Trinitarian koinonia, the "dwelling of God with men" (cf. Rv 21:4).
The Spirit, by making present what Christ did once for all—the event of the mystery—accomplishes it in all of us. The relation to the mystery, more evident in the eucharist, is found in the other sacraments, all acts of the Spirit. That is why the eucharist is the center of sacramental life.
6. Taken as a whole, the eucharistic celebration makes present the Trinitarian mystery of the church. In it one passes from hearing the word, culminating in the proclamation of the Gospel—the apostolic announcing of the word made flesh—to the thanksgiving offered to the Father and to the memorial of the sacrifice and to communion in it thanks to the prayer of epiclesis uttered in faith. For the epiclesis is not merely an invocation for the sacramental transforming of the bread and cup. It is also a prayer for the full effect of the communion of all in the mystery revealed by the Son.
This Real Presence of the Triune God (Elohim) through the Fifth Luminous Mystery (Mystery of Light) is in perfect accord with a spiritual/metaphysical understanding of E=mc2.
Did you ever wonder why the "conversion constant"
the speed of light in a vacuum
is so mysteriously close to 3 x 108m/s?
Could it be that the Third Person
of the Holy Trinity, the Holy Spirit,
is to be honored by this universal
and absolute speed limit that is
fundamental to God's creation?
We must remember the shekhinah
in the Old Testament of Sacred Scripture
appeared both to the Jews and Gentiles
as a Pillar of Fire and a Pillar of Cloud.
Two different manifestations
of mysteriously constant Light Energy,
signifying the one real presence
of God in the Holy of Holies
the inner sanctum
of the tabernacle.
The double consecration is the fulfillment
of this covenantal promise and plan
of God dwelling with us.
Fallen mankind had a different plan in mind
and our hubris ushered in the atomic age
with the Trinity Project in 1945
that led to Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Sincerely yours in Jesus and Mary,
Become like Jesus
Live for the Triune God
Seek the Light of Our Lord Jesus Christ
See you on the High Ground!
