Jesse Tree: Introduction


I mentioned before that we’d made ornaments for the Jesse Tree.  This year, we decided to use our Christmas tree as the Jesse Tree and create dough ornaments that will last for years to come.  The results of the ornaments are beautiful!  I’ve taken a picture of each one and will post it with our readings and theme for each day’s readings and ornament.

The Jesse Tree’s history can be read here and here.  In short, it’s a way to look back through our salvation history and see the anticipation of the Savior that was held throughout history, just as we anticipate the coming of our Savior, Christ Jesus, at the end of time.  One day, He will come, and all the world will be judged.  As today’s Gospel warns us, let us not be caught sleeping when the Master returns!
