伯多祿前書:Chapter 2:6

這就是經上所記載的:『看,我要在熙雍安放一塊精選的,寶貴的基石,凡信賴他的,決不會蒙羞。』

Scripture says: See, I lay in Zion a chosen and precious cornerstone; whoever believes in him will not be disappointed.

在那年代,天主教徒只能在私密場所進行集體聚會,桌子上顯示了天主教徒進行集體聚會的方式

During that time Catholics can only perform mass in private place, the desk shows the Catholic way of doing the mass.
