Too, as the Head of the Mystical Body, and with us as members of this Mystical Body, Our Lady as Mystical Rose would surely prefer our focus at Holy Communion to be more on His Divinity, Love, Wisdom and more: prayer in sorrow yet joy (in Gethsemane, yet prior to there, etc.), sacrifice of His Body, and penance in the great sufferings He went through for all of us sinners. Connectedly, a 5th c. Bishop of Brescia [Diocese of Mystical Rose apparitions] – Saint Gaudentius – wrote ‘Heavenly’ on the Holy Communion of the bread and wine. “They have become Heavenly, because Christ has passed into them and changed them into His Body and Blood. What you receive is the Body of Him Who is the Heavenly Bread, and the Blood of Him Who is the Sacred Vine.” Thus, how HEAVENLY it is to properly receive well Holy Communion.
God’s timing can be mystical. Two great events happened at the last “Amen.” The last “Amen” praying the Divine Mercy Chaplet back around 2000, at home with my Mom and Stepdad, came with a phone call. A Divine Mercy Bookstore owner offered me a great Polish reliquary: it’s had St. Faustina’s fingernail in it, and her 1st class relic has healed many cancer victims and more. She wrote a great Litany to the Most Blessed Sacrament, too. It’s #356 in the Diary of Divine Mercy that has sections numbered. In 2004, doing prison ministry with Holy Mass in Mexico, I invited the prisoners to plead to God for a white Christmas. With the last Amen of Mass it started hailing like popcorn right on Dec. 24, yet a huge white blanket of snow led me to offer a Midnight Mass, and the youth showed up with their musical instruments, too. Like to Fatima, the sun came out so strong in the morning that no mud was on our shoes – there in Mexico the topsoil is so strong that it can dry up and tear up especially tennis shoes. What blessings right at the closing Amens in prayers at times!!
Thank you all.
Glory to the TRINITY, and via Maria ROSA MYSTICA!
Fr. Ed, Mexico, SOLT, but MRMS too in spirit!
Have a Blessed & Holy June month of what can be called the Body of Christ!
P.S. In the book about to be published on the Eucharist, Titles and why for months are mentioned. Pope Francis may receive a copy of it:
John 6:66 Eternity with The TRINITY vs. eternity with the beast… on how disciples turned their backs to Jesus when He taught on His Eucharistic sacrifice.
May Our Lady ever-flowering & overflowing with graces & blessings unfold in us The 3-Fold indwelling Divinity (of Her 3 'Roses') to ever spring, sing, & ring alive.
Amatissima semper esto Maria Rosa Mystica!
Most Beloved ever be Maria Rosa Mystica!
