IMAGINE...A Universal Corpus Christi Moment

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


Pope Francis would on the spur of the moment decide
to take to the open seas and cross the Atlantic 
on a ship destined for the Port of Corpus Christi, Texas. 
There would be deep symbolic meaning for his ship 
(OLS Stella Maris?) to sail beyond Padre Island
through the waters of the Laguna Madre 
and under the light bearing Corpus Christi 
Harbor Bridge that connects
 the Texas State Aquarium (fish->Eucharist) 
with the Santa Maria replica 
for the the 500th Anniversary
of Columbus' inspired maiden voyage 
to the New World in1492. 

He could make it here for the October 7th, Feast of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary and his onboard social media broadcasts/teachings would serve as an inspiring, joyful call for the world to universal Mass witness: praying, fasting and giving alms—keys to the original feast and the successful Battle of Lepanto in 1571. 

We need a witness of solidarity 
and a miracle of faith right now, 
before the Middle East situation 
really explodes into mass chaos.

Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of the Unborn
and Star of the New Evangelization
and Queen of Peace,
Pray for us!
Saint John Bosco, Pray for us.

Sincerely yours in Jesus through 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!

Jesus, Mary and Joseph;
O Beata Trinitas;
