FLASHBACK: "The Eucharist and the Church, body of the crucified and risen Christ, become the place of the energies of the Holy Spirit."

J.M.J. + O.B.T. + M.G.R.*


A Pontifical Council 
"breathing with both lungs"
in 1982 
5. The mission of the Spirit remains joined to that of the Son.
The celebration of the eucharist reveals the divine energies manifested by the Spirit at work in the body of Christ.

a. The Spirit prepares the coming of Christ by announcing it through the prophets, by directing the history of the chosen people toward him, by causing him to be conceived by the Virgin Mary, by opening up hearts to his word.

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 work of a joint commission brings the Light Energy of the Holy Spirit into full relief. It is His Light Energy that acts at the double consecration (c2) to transubstantiate the bread and wine into the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ at each and every Holy Mass

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.

Emmanuel (God with us)       THE             HOLY SPIRIT'S
                                               HOLY          LIGHT ENERGY (2x)
Eucharist (Thanksgiving)        MASS            Speed of Light c2

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,
Mike Rizzio

Imitate Mary
Become like Jesus
Live for the Triune God

Seek the Light of Our Lord Jesus Christ
See you on the High Ground!

* - J.M.J. + O.B.T. + M.G.R. stands for:
Jesus, Mary and Joseph;
O Beata Trinitas;
St. Michael, St. Gabriel and St. Raphael
