Tree Of Life

Adoration was in our day chapel this morning as yesterday was the Feast of The Sacred Heart of Jesus and today, (first Saturday) Immaculate Heart of Mary. I was alone with our Lord and my eyes and attention were fixed on the Blessed Sacrament. When my soul took a break away, I tossed my head back and looked up to see our Lord on His cross. What captured my eye for the first time was His “Adam’s Apple”. I immediately was taken to the book of Genesis. “In the beginning” of the garden, Eve tempted Adam with “The forbidden fruit”, here this morning, in the wee small hours, I was gazing upon the “First Fruit of Life” hanging on the “Tree of Life”. The “New Adam” offering life, not temptation. “Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil”. “I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you” (John 6:53)

His “Adam’s Apple”, nourishing truth, love, mercy, forgiveness and suffering from His Sacred Heart, through his throat, and exiting His sweet lips for the world to hear, “Taste and see that the LORD is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him”. (Psalm 34:8)

“Return to your First Love”

“Come to Me, all you who are weary and find life burdensome, and I will refresh you.” —Mt 11:28
