Jesse Tree - Second Saturday in Advent

Today we are reminded of God's love and protection of us as we read the 23rd psalm. The symbol for today is a lamb with a cross and flag which I think is the Pascal Lamb and this is EWTN's explanation of it. "The Paschal Lamb: At the yearly Pasch, the Jews sacrificed a new, unblemished lamb in thanksgiving for all that God had done for them and as an atonement offering for all their sins. This sacrifice of the Paschal Lamb was fulfilled in Christ, the "Lamb who takes away the sins of the world."

Here is today's reading: Psalm 23 and the symbols for this week are here.
