Symbols: Animals, Dove, Rainbow
When Noah finally left the Ark and
settled on dry land, he built an altar to worship the Lord who had saved
him. God placed a rainbow in the sky as token of his resolve to never
visit such a disaster over the face of the earth again.
Noah was a savior, preserving the natural life of all
within the Ark; Christ bring supernatural life to mankind and preserves
that life within His Mystical Body, the Church.
