Mary and the Matter/Mass that is Jesus Christ, XI

J.M.J. + O.B.T. + M.G.R.*
 Mary and the Blood Moons

In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue...
and there were the four red moons, 
or were there?

One person is certain...
Mary was there (a statue) on the Santa Maria
and she was prayed to every night. 

The moon represents silver. 
Since the moon receives 
and is illuminated by the sun’s 
golden rays it is considered feminine. 

This partially explains how lunar gravity 
regulates earthly reality relative to the tides
and woman’s fertility cycle.

In Orthodox Christian iconography 
the moon represents Jesus Christ’s mother, 
the Blessed Virgin Mary 
who is depicted standing and/or
enthroned on a lunar crescent.

St. John the Evangelists revelation...

And a great sign appeared in heaven: 
A woman clothed with the sun, 
and the moon under her feet, 
and on her head a crown of twelve stars:
Rev 12:1

The Church Fathers used the allegory, 
moon-dew to explain the divine action
of grace that flows from God
in the sacramental life

of the believer.

The key is neither the lunar nor solar eclipse
but the state of ones soul and our watchfulness...

 And being with child, 
she cried travailing in birth,
 and was in pain to be delivered.
  Rev 12:2

Get and stay prepared
because the dragon appears
in the next verse!

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!

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