First Tuesday of Advent
“The earth brought forth vegetation: every kind of plant that bears seed and every kind of fruit tree that bears fruit with its seed in it. God saw that it was good. Evening came, and morning followed—the third day.” Gen. 1:12-13
Reflection: Creation is originally designed to be more “mother” than “machine.” She is meant to bear the fruit of the seeds planted in her by the Lord. Only later is she tainted by darkness and decay. Prayer: God our Father, help us to always respect Your creation. May we all stand in awe of Your imagination and design. Guide us to cherish the world You have made, and to always be its respectful stewards. Amen.
