Some people may be wondering why I chose a mountaintop as my template. Father Joel de los Reyes submitted an excellent article in the Umatuna about mountaintop, which is found here.
Father Joel writes that it's on a mountaintop where we meet God. The Holy Bible is filled with stories about mountaintops and mountainsides. These are a small sample:
- Moses receive the Ten Commandments on Mt. Sinai.
- It was on a mountainside that our Lord Jesus Christ delivered His Sermon on the Mount.
- It was on Mt. Moria where Abraham was told to sacrifice Isaac.
- It was on Mt. Calvary where Christ gave His life to redeem mankind
- It was on Mt. Zion where God reigns.
- It was on a mountain where Jesus brought St. Peter, St. James, and St. John to witness the Transfiguration.
