Mary IS the Arc!

Preaching at the parish of St. Thomas of Villanova in Castel Gandolfo on the Solemnity of the Assumption, Pope Benedict emphasized that the Blessed Virgin Mary is the “living ark of the covenant who has a destiny of extraordinary glory.”

“The New Testament tells us that the true ark of the covenant is a living and concrete person: it is the Virgin Mary,” Pope Benedict preached. “God does not dwell in a piece of furniture, God dwells in a person, in a heart: Mary, she who bore in her womb the eternal Son of God made man, Jesus our Lord and Savior … Mary, the ark of the covenant that is in the sanctuary of heaven, points out to us with luminous clarity that we are on the way to our true home, to communion of joy and peace with God.” [source]

Oh please… This is so much like old mystic religion!
