Mary Ark Of The New Covenant

Let us place in pararell the Ark of the Covenant of the Old Testament and the Ark of the Covent of the New Testament that is the Blessed Virgin Mary, as seen and written by St. John in Rev 11:19.

The Ark of the Covenant of the Old Testament contained in it the Word of God written in stone tablet that is the Ten Commandment while in Mary is contained Jesus the Word of God in flesh and blood.

The Ark of the Covenant of the Old Testament contained in it Manna which God told Moses to preserve that generations to come will be told of how He used the bread of angels to feed the children of Israel in the wilderness, while in Mary is contained Jesus the bread of life. For He said in the holy gospel according to St. John 6:48 “I am the bread of life” and again in verse 51 Jesus said “I am the living bread which came down from heaven”

Thirdly in the Ark of the Covenant of the Old Testament is contained the staff of Aaron the chief priest while in May is contained Jesus the eternal High Priest.

Just like in the olden times, whenever the children of Israel went to war carrrying the Ark of the Covenant, their God fought for them and they overcame, in like manna when we wage war daily with the forces of darkness with Mary the Ark of the Covenant like we call her in the litany while we say our Rosary daily, we must be asured that our God will fight our battles for us and victory is sure.

Pray the #Rosary daily
