On this mountain the Lord of hosts will prepare for all peoples a banquet of rich food, a banquet of fine wines

Additional Info

  • Description:

    From the prophet Isaiah, we heard the famous prophecy, ‘on this mountain the Lord of hosts will prepare for all peoples a banquet of rich food, a banquet of fine wines. A food rich an juicy of strained vines, on this mountain He removed the mourning veil covering all peoples and the shroud wrapping all nations, he will destroy death forever.’ This prophecy as we all know has been fulfilled.

    Which is this mountain of which the Lord has prepared a rich banquet for all peoples? Well from the Prophet Daniel. Remember the famous dream, where there was the great statue, with the golden head and the feet of clay and iron. We’re told that small stone was cut from the mountain and it came down and struck the feet of the statue. The small stone itself destroying the statue became a great mountain. That of course is easily interpreted to be Our Lord Jesus Christ, that small stone, that single stone which smashed the head of Goliath, which we know from the book of Samuel. That small stone became the great mountain, Christ Jesus, but how does that fulfil the prophecy? Christ is the head and His body of which we are members, His body is the Church. It is in the Church, the mystical body of Christ that this prophecy is fulfilled, namely that the Lord has prepared a banquet for all peoples, all the gentiles, all the nations of the earth, enter into the One Church. A banquet of rich food and banquet of fine wines, the Eucharist and the Sacraments that come with it.

    On this mountain he removes the mourning veil that covers all peoples, namely sin, disease and death. And the shroud enwrapping all nations, He will destroy death forever. It is only in the One Church Christ founded that this happens, namely His Catholic and Apostolic Church.

    Evitar essa constipação comendo vitualhas ricos em fibras alimentares, evitando cafeína e bebendo muita água.
