Catholic Word of the Day: ARCA, 10-15-12 ^ | 10-15-12 | Fr. John Hardon's Modern Catholic Dictionary

Posted on 10/15/2012 9:03:06 AM PDT by Salvation

Featured Term (selected at random):


A box in which the Eucharist was kept by the early Christians in their homes. It was also a chest for the safekeeping of church moneys, endowment funds for churches, schools, or other pious uses. The term is now used to describe the investments for some ecclesiastical purpose, e.g., arca seminarii, seminary fund. (Etym. Latin arca, chest, coffer.)

Iguess it is not connected to the word 'ark'?
