In the beginning, when God created the heavens and the earth and the earth was without form or shape, with darkness over the abyss and a mighty wind sweeping over the waters. Then God said: Let there be light, and there was light. God saw that the light was good. (Genesis 1:1-4)


During this Advent season, we review God's covenant with us, our salvation history. The Jesse Tree is a way of meditating on God's promise of a Savior. We begin with Creation, the birth of life, beginning of time.

In the creation of world and man, God gave the first and universal witness to His almighty love and His wisdom, the first proclamation of the "plan of His loving goodness," which finds its goal in the new creation of Christ.
