Angels and wild beasts

On this first Sunday of Lent, the Church asks us to meditate on animals and angels. For Christ, in his own person, joins together the disparate elements of creation, the spiritual and the material, angels and wild beasts. There are, of course, angels and wild beasts in all of us. We are all a microcosm of the ethereal and the corporeal, the spiritual and the physical.

The ark, the Mass, and the reordering of the world

As Lent commences, the pews will be filled with people escaping the chaos of the modern world and finding a place of peace and order within the ship-like safety of the Church. In today’s readings, we hear the peculiar story of Noah in the book of Genesis, which correlates with the Mass. We find in the ark a remnant of God’s right order as he remakes the world through the purifying waters of the flood. We, too, are called to preserve the life of the world within the symbolic “ark” of the Church, but only to let that life out for the good of the World.

Jesus among the angels and beasts

Lent begins with a passage about Noah and flood. Itโ€™s representative of not only sin, but of Godโ€™s good grace. Itโ€™s also a fitting entree into Jesusโ€™ journey into the desert, also symbolic of sin, and how his presence there infuses a forgotten, desolate place with life and goodness. When we are racked with sin, it is Christ who can infuse us with life and goodness.

Get on the ark

As Lent commences, we are given the great image of Noah’s Ark. This story is not just a charming tale that we tell to the kids; in it is contained the whole message of salvation, if we but know how to decipher the symbolism.

The angels and the wild beasts

Mark tells us that Jesus went into the desert and there was ministered to by angels while he lived among the beasts. One of the marks of sin is an aliention of the body and the spirit, the animal and the angelic in all of us. Jesus represents the proper balance between the two.
