The Importance of the Implied Love

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

In Eucharist Christ Comes
As Light, Life
[and an implied Love]
Of The World

by Pope John Paul II
Vatican, November 13, 2002

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Theme: 'Eucharist, Light and Life of the New Millennium'
Your Assembly has given special attention to the Congress, whose theme will be: "The Eucharist, Light and Life of the New Millennium". The millennium has just begun but already everyone clearly sees how necessary for humanity and for the Church is the light of Jesus Christ and the life he offers in the Eucharist.

The beginning is not without threatening shadows. For this reason, it is necessary to re-present to humanity "the true light that enlightens every man who comes into the world" (Jn 1,9), the Word Incarnate who wished to remain with us in such a wonderful way as he does in the Eucharist. In this sacrament, Jesus Christ is present with the gift of himself "for the life of the world" — pro mundi vita — for the life of our world as it is, with its lights and shadows. The Eucharist is the sublime expression of the love of God incarnate, a permanent and effective love.

Fourteen years later we are still waiting
for a Trinitarian rebirth, a movement
of the Holy Spirit that launches
the New Evangelization in this era
of the I-phone and the LED. 

The implied Love
must be raised high
along with Light and Life

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;
