of the Rosary
for you index
15 May you be blessed by the LORD, who made heaven and earth. 16 The heavens belong to the LORD, but the earth is given to us.
"Science, and particularly geometry and astronomy / astrology, was linked directly to the divine for most medieval scholars. The compass in this 13th century manuscript is a symbol of God's act of Creation. God has created the universe after geometric and harmonic principles, to seek these principles was therefore to seek and worship God."

THE ANCIENT STORY - MAZZAROTH
I have built heaven, my upper chamber, and established my vault over the earth; I summon the waters of the sea and pour them upon the surface of the earth, I, the LORD by name.
OF THE UNIVERSE,
THE STORY OF SALVATION
WRITTEN IN THE STARS.
COULD HE? WOULD HE? DID HE?
Uncovering God's ancient salvation message in the sky is not easy. But our God is clear about creating, arranging and naming the stars for a specific purpose. Scripture assures us of this and many of these stars still carry their ancient names to back his word. Ask yourself, 'could he be telling of the coming Jewish Messiah?', 'Would he?' Decide for yourself.
2 The LORD rebuilds Jerusalem, gathers the dispersed of Israel, 3 Heals the broken hearted, binds up their wounds, 4. Numbers all the stars, calls each of them by name. 5 Great is our Lord, vast in power, with wisdom beyond measure.
PRAISES ITS CREATOR
And again in PSALM 148:
CREATION LAID OUT
ORIGIN of BIRTHSTONES,
(This ancient study of the stars has nothing to do with Horoscopes which is against the teachings of the Church. It is not about fortelling our future, but points instead to our Salvation.)

The ephod* they shall make of gold thread and of violet, purple, and scarlet yarn, embroidered on cloth of fine linen twined.b
It shall have a pair of shoulder straps joined to its two upper ends.
The embroidered belt of the ephod shall extend out from it and, like it, be made of gold thread, of violet, purple, and scarlet yarn, and of fine linen twined.
Get two onyx stones and engrave on them the names of the sons of Israel:
six of their names on one stone, and the names of the remaining six on the other stone, in the order of their birth.
As a gem-cutter engraves a seal, so shall you have the two stones engraved with the names of the sons of Israel and then mounted in gold filigree work.
Set these two stones on the shoulder straps of the ephod as memorial stones of the sons of Israel. Thus Aaron shall bear their names on his shoulders as a reminder before the LORD.
Make filigree rosettes of gold,c
as well as two chains of pure gold, twisted like cords, and fasten the cordlike chains to the filigree rosettes.
d The breastpiece* of decision you shall also have made, embroidered like the ephod with gold thread and violet, purple, and scarlet yarn on cloth of fine linen twined.
It is to be square when folded double, a span high and a span wide.
* On it you shall mount four rows of precious stones: in the first row, a carnelian, a topaz, and an emerald;
in the second row, a garnet, a sapphire, and a beryl;
in the third row, a jacinth, an agate, and an amethyst;
in the fourth row, a chrysolite, an onyx, and a jasper. These stones are to be mounted in gold filigree work,
twelve of them to match the names of the sons of Israel, each stone engraved like a seal with the name of one of the twelve tribes.
When the chains of pure gold, twisted like cords, have been made for the breastpiece,
you shall then make two rings of gold for it and fasten them to the two upper ends of the breastpiece.
The gold cords are then to be fastened to the two rings at the upper ends of the breastpiece,
the other two ends of the cords being fastened in front to the two filigree rosettes which are attached to the shoulder straps of the ephod.
Make two other rings of gold and put them on the two lower ends of the breastpiece, on its edge that faces the ephod.
Then make two more rings of gold and fasten them to the bottom of the shoulder straps next to where they join the ephod in front, just above its embroidered belt.
Violet ribbons shall bind the rings of the breastpiece to the rings of the ephod, so that the breastpiece will stay right above the embroidered belt of the ephod and not swing loose from it.
Whenever Aaron enters the sanctuary, he will thus bear the names of the sons of Israel on the breastpiece of decision over his heart as a constant reminder before the LORD.
In this breastpiece of decisione you shall put the Urim and Thummim,* that they may be over Aaron’s heart whenever he enters the presence of the LORD. Thus he shall always bear the decisions for the Israelites over his heart in the presence of the LORD.
