11-21-18 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

November 21, 2018
(Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary)
John’s revelation continued:  In the center and around the throne, there were four living creatures covered with eyes in front and in back.  The first creature resembled a lion, the second was like a calf, the third had a face like that of a man, and the fourth looked like an eagle in flight.  The four living creatures, each of them with six wings, were covered with eyes inside and out.  Day and night they do not stop exclaiming: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God almighty, who was, and who is, and who is to come.”  Rv_4:1-11

“The four living creatures symbolize, respectively, what is noblest, strongest, wisest, and swiftest in creation. Since the second century, these four creatures have been used as symbols of the evangelists Mark, Luke, Matthew, and John, respectively.” NAB footnote.  These creatures are also referenced in the Book of the Prophet Ezekiel, Ez 1:10.  And, of course their chant is one we hear and recite in our Mass every day, the Sanctus:  “Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of hosts.  Heaven and earth are full of your glory . . .”

From ages long past we join in communion with the Saints and the Evangelists, with the Angels and the Archangels, with the Prophets and with the Apostles in praising our Lord and God for His nobility, His power, His wisdom and His omnipresence.  Our God, who was and who is and who is to come!
