Quotations on Mary, Ark of the Covenant

by Steve Ray on June 18, 2005

I just compiled over 7 pages of quotations from the Fathers of the Church about

 Mary, the Ark of the New Covenant

Here is a sample from the great St. Athanasius (c. 296-373) who defended the Trinity and Divinity of Christ:

“O noble Virgin, truly you are greater than any other greatness. For who is your equal in greatness, O dwelling place of God the Word? To whom among all creatures shall I compare you, O Virgin? You are greater than them all O (Ark of the) Covenant, clothed with purity instead of gold! You are the Ark in which is found the golden vessel containing the true manna, that is, the flesh in which Divinity resides.” Homily of the Papyrus of Turin.

Schiavo autopsy reactions

 

St. Petersburg, Florida, Jun. 17 (CWNews.com) – After a Florida medical examiner on Wednesday released the results of the autopsy performed on Terri Schiavo– the disabled woman who died on March 31 after a court-ordered removal of food and water– those who fought for her life dismissed the findings as ultimately beside the point.

The results of the autopsy were highly anticipated given many unanswered questions around the controversial case, especially the cause of her initial collapse in 1990.
