Jesse Tree - First Monday in Advent

God's Creation; the reading for this day reflects the first days of the creation so many different symbols can be used. Some prefer to use a symbol of God, others of the wonderful earth that God created.

Here is the reading , which is Genesis 1: 24-28.

Again, to use the symbols for this week from the Domestic Church, click here.

the USCCB has different this something unique to the Jesse Tree?
Just wondering where the reading came from. It is different than the Church readings for today.

The reading each day pertains to the Jesse tree and the symbol is tied into the reading. For example today's reading is from Genesis:
"And God said, "Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: livestock, creatures that move along the ground, and wild animals, each according to its kind." And it was so. God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good..."
and so the symbol used represents the bountiful earth that God created.

Hope that clears it up!
