1) Ark/BVM Word Bread High Priest
2) David: how does the Ark come to me leaping with Joy Ark staying 3 months blessing the household of Israel: Same with Mary and Elizabeth.
3) Ark of his covenant could be seen in the temple, A great sign appeared in the sky, a woman* clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.
In the Gospel a woman in the crowd cry’s out to Jesus, saying BVM womb is blessed for bearing Him. And Jesus says “Rather blessed are those who hear the word of God and observe it.”
In the Gospel a woman in the crowd cry’s out to Jesus, saying “blessed is the womb that carried you.” And Jesus says “Rather blessed are those who hear the word of God and observe it.”
This woman was praying the middle part of the rosary: paraphrased she is saying “Blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus” Blessing Mary guides us to hearing observing and being blessed by Jesus the living Word of God. The Angels said to Mary “Hail Mary full of Grace the Lord is with you, blessed are thou among women,” this woman in our Gospel adds and “blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus,” and the Church says, “Holy Mary Mother of God pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death”. Praying and contemplating the mysteries of the Rosary draws us in to the life and hearts of Mary Jesus’s best disciple and ultimately ever closer into the life and heart of Jesus, in holiness humility and servanthood, preparing us for our hour of death and the Resurrection of the living heaven in the presence and joy of God with all the angels and saints for ever and ever Amen.
