Catechesis Notes for the Week — Psalm 87—A Prayer of Rejoicing in the Holy Christian Church—Zion is a type of the New Testament Church. Mount Zion was the location of Jerusalem and the Temple to which people of all nations were to be drawn for the gift of salvation and new life. Psalm 87 prophecies of how the Lord loves His Church, builds His Church, and will draw sinners of all nations into her. The new birth of Holy Baptism makes of people of many tribes, nations, and languages one people in Christ: “This one and that one were born in her and the Most High Himself shall establish her.” The Lord writes their names on the ledger of the Book of Life. In the Church there is deliverance from sin, death, and everlasting destruction. The Church’s choirs and musicians sing and rejoice in the Lord’s salvation in time and eternity.CP200802
