Some people do not know or believe that Catholics are Christians, but Catholics are indeed Christians and Catholics love Jesus and worship God-the three Persons of the Blessed Trinity:
the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Blessed Virgin Mary: Ark of the New Covenant
How the Old Ark of the Covenant PREFIGURES the New ark of the Covenant
 

Gold Chest: OLD Covenant Ark

In the Old Testament, the Lord said: “They shall make a sanctuary for Me that I may dwell in their midst.... Plate it inside and outside with pure gold.” (Ex 25:8)
 

In the Old Testament, David rose and went up to the hill country of Judea. (1 Sam.22:5)
 

David asked: “How shall the Ark of the Lord come to me?” (2 Sam.6:9)


In the Old Testament, the Ark of the Covenant stayed in the house of Obed-edom for three months.
(2 Sam. 6:11)

When the Ark was brought to the City of David, David responded by leaping and dancing before the Ark. (2 Sam.6:14)


In the book of Exodus, the tabernacle that covered the Ark was over-shadowed by the glory cloud and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle.
(Ex. 40:34ff)
 

Inside the ark was the Law of God inscribed on stone. (Deut. 31:26)

 

The Book of Hebrews says there was also an urn of manna in the Ark, which came down from heaven. (Heb. 9:4) And those who would eat it would still die. (Jn. 6:58)

The Ark also contained the rod of Aaron as a proof of the priesthood of the Old Testament. (Heb. 9:4)

 Virgin Mary: NEW Covenant Ark

God created a perfect vessel in Mary, preserving her from all sin, according to Sacred Tradition and Catholic teaching. She is the only mere human whom the Bible calls “full of grace.” (Lk. 1:28)

After the Annunciation, Mary rose and went up to the hill country of Judea to visit her cousin Elizabeth. (Lk.1:39-40)

Elizabeth asked: “How does this happen to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?” (Lk. 1:43)

In the New Testament, Mary stayed in the house of Elizabeth for three months. (Lk.1:56)

When Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting, the infant in Elizabeth's womb – St. John the Baptist - leaped for joy. (Lk. 1:41,44)

At the Annunciation, the Angel Gabriel informed Mary that, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you and the power of the Most High will over-shadow you.” (Lk. 1:35) Mary's soul was filled with the greatness of the Lord. (Lk. 1:46)

Inside the womb of Mary is the Word of God, (Jn. 1:1) enfleshed in Jesus. “The child to be born will be called holy, the Son of God.” (Lk. 1:35)



In Mary's womb is the Bread of Life which came down from heaven, and if we eat it, we will never die. (Jn. 6:58)

In Mary's womb is Jesus Christ, the “high priest forever according to the order of Melchidesek.” (Heb. 6:20)

At the end of her life, Mary was taken into heaven, body and soul,
as a singular participation in her Son's Resurrection and an anticipation of the resurrection of other Christians.
(Catechism of the Catholic Church, 966)
