Description: Do you know the origin of the rainbow? According to the Catholic Catechism, the first rainbow occurred after the flood when God established a covenant with Noah and his descendants. The rainbow was God’s pictorial reminder to both God and man. God tells Noah in Genesis, 9- vs. 8-16, “This is the sign I am giving for all ages to come of the covenant between me and you and every living creature with you. I set my bow in the clouds to serve as a sign of the covenant between me and the earth. When I bring clouds over the earth and the bow appears in the clouds, I will recall the covenant I have made between me and you and all living beings so that the waters will never again be a flood to destroy all mortal beings....” Little wonder a vivid Valentine from our creator so excites our eyes. This is Peggy Stanton and this has been the Order of Malta’s Minute with the Catechism.
