The Jesse Tree

A constellation of traditions exist to mark the miraculous event of Christmas: God becomes man in the person of Jesus Christ. The Jesse Tree is one such tradition. It’s the perfect complement to the great ‘Season of Saints’ in early November where we celebrate the spiritual descendants of Jesus (All Saints and All Souls Day). In the Jesse Tree tradition, we commemorate the spiritual ancestors of Jesus. -from Cathfamily:
