Exodus 40:16-21,34-38, Psalm 84,
Matthew 13:47-53

Holy Presence

The ark of the covenant was the container that held the law given to Moses on Mount Sinai. It was placed in the tabernacle, in the tent of the congregation. Does this sound familiar? When we understand that Christ Jesus is the fulfilment of God’s covenant, then we can see in Exodus, the beginnings of the ritual that is now our mass. At mass we are one with Catholics all over the world; but the connection is much bigger than that. When we bow before the tabernacle, we bow before a great history of God-with-us.
