October 30, 2013 – “Book of Revelation’s “Ark” Coming to Our Aid”
// October 30th, 2013 // The Joy of Discovery
During the difficult moments in life, do we take full advantage of our circumstances and draw closer to Our Lord? In the Book of Revelations, after peace is removed from the earth and amidst other grave difficulties, many people are still unwilling to come to him (Rev 9: 20 – 21). Upon this scene, however, appears the Ark of God’s covenant. From Scripture, we know that this is Our Lady and she is there to offer refuge from the attacks of the evil one – refuge for those “who keep God’s commandments and bear witness to Jesus.” (Rev 12: 17). We also consider here those Companions of the Lamb described in Rev 14 and the role of our baptism in this “companionship”.
