The Blessed Virgin is considered to be the New Temple of Solomon for the following reasons:

 

1 – She is full with the Holy Spirit and is His spouse, she is the Seat of Wisdom!

2 – She bore and gave birth to the Messiah, the Son of God, who is both High Priest and Sacrifice and is also the Word of God (the Law) and the living manna from Heaven and also the pass over Lamb which needs to be eaten and its blood smeared on the doorpost

3 – She offered her Son on Mount Calvary just like Abraham was to sacrifice his son Isaac on Mount Moriah – the Temple Mount

4 – Together with St Joseph she is the descendent of King David and King Solomon and their forefathers Boaz and Jachin – representing the two pillars – however the two pillars are now the Holy Eucharist and Our Lady (according to Don Bosco’s apparition)

 

To understand the reason how come Our Lady’s intercession before God is the most powerful one must read 1 Kings 8 – main reason being that we must enter into the Temple before asking Jesus Christ our God for help.

 

8:30 Listen you to the supplication of your servant, and of your people Israel, when they shall pray toward this place: yes, hear in heaven, your dwelling-place; and when you hear, forgive.

8:31 If a man sin against his neighbor, and an oath be laid on him to cause him to swear, and he come and swear before your altar in this house;

8:32 then hear you in heaven, and do, and judge your servants, condemning the wicked, to bring his way on his own head, and justifying the righteous, to give him according to his righteousness.

8:33 When your people Israel are struck down before the enemy, because they have sinned against you; if they turn again to you, and confess your name, and pray and make supplication to you in this house:

8:34 then hear you in heaven, and forgive the sin of your people Israel, and bring them again to the land which you gave to their fathers.

8:35 When the sky is shut up, and there is no rain, because they have sinned against you; if they pray toward this place, and confess your name, and turn from their sin, when you do afflict them:

8:36 then hear in heaven, and forgive the sin of your servants, and of your people Israel, when you teach them the good way in which they should walk; and send rain on your land, which you have given to your people for an inheritance.

8:37 If there be in the land famine, if there be pestilence, if there be blasting or mildew, locust or caterpillar; if their enemy besiege them in the land of their cities; whatever plague, whatever sickness there be;

8:38 whatever prayer and supplication be made by any man, or by all your people Israel, who shall know every man the plague of his own heart, and spread forth his hands toward this house:

8:39 then hear in heaven, your dwelling-place, and forgive, and do, and render to every man according to all his ways, whose heart you know; (for you, even you only, know the hearts of all the children of men;)

8:40 that they may fear you all the days that they live in the land which you gave to our fathers.

8:41 Moreover concerning the foreigner, who is not of your people Israel, when he shall come out of a far country for your name’s sake

8:42 (for they shall hear of your great name, and of your mighty hand, and of your outstretched arm); when he shall come and pray toward this house;

8:43 hear in heaven, your dwelling-place, and do according to all that the foreigner calls to you for; that all the peoples of the earth may know your name, to fear you, as does your people Israel, and that they may know that this house which I have built is called by my name.

8:44 If your people go out to battle against their enemy, by whatever way you shall send them, and they pray to Yahweh toward the city which you have chosen, and toward the house which I have built for your name;

8:45 then hear in heaven their prayer and their supplication, and maintain their cause.

8:46 If they sin against you (for there is no man who doesn’t sin), and you are angry with them, and deliver them to the enemy, so that they carry them away captive to the land of the enemy, far off or near;

8:47 yet if they shall repent themselves in the land where they are carried captive, and turn again, and make supplication to you in the land of those who carried them captive, saying, We have sinned, and have done perversely, we have dealt wickedly;

8:48 if they return to you with all their heart and with all their soul in the land of their enemies, who carried them captive, and pray to you toward their land, which you gave to their fathers, the city which you have chosen, and the house which I have built for your name:

8:49 then hear you their prayer and their supplication in heaven, your dwelling-place, and maintain their cause;

8:50 and forgive your people who have sinned against you, and all their transgressions in which they have transgressed against you; and give them compassion before those who carried them captive, that they may have compassion on them

8:51 (for they are your people, and your inheritance, which you brought forth out of Egypt, from the midst of the furnace of iron);

8:52 that your eyes may be open to the supplication of your servant, and to the supplication of your people Israel, to listen to them whenever they cry to you.

8:53 For you did separate them from among all the peoples of the earth, to be your inheritance, as you spoke by Moses your servant, when you brought our fathers out of Egypt, Lord Yahweh.

8:54 It was so, that when Solomon had made an end of praying all this prayer and supplication to Yahweh, he arose from before the altar of Yahweh, from kneeling on his knees with his hands spread forth toward heaven.

8:55 He stood, and blessed all the assembly of Israel with a loud voice, saying,

8:56 Blessed be Yahweh, who has given rest to his people Israel, according to all that he promised: there has not failed one word of all his good promise, which he promised by Moses his servant.

8:57 Yahweh our God be with us, as he was with our fathers: let him not leave us, nor forsake us;

8:58 that he may incline our hearts to him, to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments, and his statutes, and his ordinances, which he commanded our fathers.

8:59 Let these my words, with which I have made supplication before Yahweh, be near to Yahweh our God day and night, that he maintain the cause of his servant, and the cause of his people Israel, as every day shall require;

8:60 that all the peoples of the earth may know that Yahweh, he is God; there is none else.

8:61 Let your heart therefore be perfect with Yahweh our God, to walk in his statutes, and to keep his commandments, as at this day.

8:62 The king, and all Israel with him, offered sacrifice before Yahweh.

8:63 Solomon offered for the sacrifice of peace-offerings, which he offered to Yahweh, two and twenty thousand oxen, and one hundred twenty thousand sheep. So the king and all the children of Israel dedicated the house of Yahweh.

8:64 The same day did the king make the middle of the court holy that was before the house of Yahweh; for there he offered the burnt offering, and the meal-offering, and the fat of the peace-offerings, because the brazen altar that was before Yahweh was too little to receive the burnt offering, and the meal-offering, and the fat of the peace-offerings.

8:65 So Solomon held the feast at that time, and all Israel with him, a great assembly, from the entrance of Hamath to the brook of Egypt, before Yahweh our God, seven days and seven days, even fourteen days.

8:66 On the eighth day he sent the people away; and they blessed the king, and went to their tents joyful and glad of heart for all the goodness that Yahweh had shown to David his servant, and to Israel his people.

  1. Respectfully, this image [on this page] is NOT Solomon’s Temple. It is a rendering of the Temple described in the vision of Ezekiel. Thought you’d want to know.
