Every year on August 22, the Church celebrates the Queenship of Mary and offers the reading Matt 22:1-4 for reflection in which Mary is seen as the bearer of the Divine Presence; the very life of God. Here we see Mary becoming the new arc of the covenant.
David dances before the arc, now, as John the Baptist dances in Elizabeth’s womb in the presence of God. Today, we too are dancing as one in the Caribbean through Carifesta XIV taking place in Trinidad.
