Sister Johanna invites us to reflect on Jesus, the root of Jesse; Jesse being the father of King David, and so the ancestor of Jesus. I like to go a couple of generations back from Jesse, to remember one of Jesus’ ancestors who was a homeless refugee:
Boaz was the father of Obed, whose mother was Ruth, Obed the father of Jesse, and Jesse the father of King David.
Let’s join Sister : Dec 19 – O Radix Jesse
And pray that he may come quickly.
One response to “December 19: O Root of Jesse, you who stand firm”
The surge of energy in this poem is wonderful and invigorating – life giving!
