The first tabernacle...

Feast of the VISITATION
May 31
Blessed is she who believed that what the Lord
has said would be fulfilled. Luke 1:45

"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." ~ St Athanasius
