need help- Jesse Tree Symbols + Readings
Sun, 11-23-2003 - 3:50pm
I'm trying to find information on creating a Jesse Tree for my kids this year. I found a site that has readings, reflections, and symbols. It's just not Catholic. I found a Catholic web site with symbols- but they don't 'Jive' with the readings and nice big symbols on the other web site. Does anyone have a web site I can go to to find this out? I've been to Ewtn, Faith First, Catholicity, Domestic but I can't find quite what I'm looking for. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thank you very much

I got a book at a Catholic bookstore once that had the readings. I just make up the symbols, according to what makes sense (Noah's ark, Jacob's ladder, etc.) I've been looking for a website with a concise summary to, to pass out at a church function, but haven't found anything.

Please post if you find anything.

Did this tree derive from different ways to make creativity come alive? There's a brand out at the craft store called "Jesse (Last name)" in tiny clay figurines. Does it have something to do with the start of the Jesse tree? When did the tradition start? (I'll look for it on the website.)
