  1. "11 - The Apple in the Garden of Eden.
    There was fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil (Genesis 2, 3), but we do not know what kind of fruit is was."


    *sigh* It wasn't literally any kind of fruit (as in something to eat) at all...and I do wish people would learn that!

    "Fruit" in this context is: the consequence of some effort or action. As in "the fruit of his labors."

  2. Lady Janus: I'm fairly certain that the overwhelming majority opinion is that the Adam/Eve text is an allegory explaining the entry of evil into creation. I know that most theologians and scripture scholars recognize this, so there would be no need to explain the symbolism.

    Just a thought. It's far too beautiful a day here in Mattawa for me to contemplate anyone 'sighing'. I sincerely hope that creation is as beautiful there as here... sun...breeze...30C. Perfect!

  3. LOL! Happy I am that you have weather you can enjoy, Tim! If I put in my order with you now, can you send me some of it for Tuesday?

    As for the allegory in question, I get your meaning, but that is not what the blogger is saying. She actually says that perhaps the "fruit" was a pomegranate...

Sisters of Life

Here is an excellent website for any and all interested in the pro-life cause. The Sisters of Life are a religious order than began in New York City under the authority of Cardinal Jon O'Connor (RIP) in the 1980's. Their traditional religious lifestyle and clear charism have led them to grow much faster than many other orders. As a result, these wonderful women are moving beyond the boundaries of NYC and have opened a convent in Toronto. Here is a link to a news account from LifesiteNews which explains in greater detail their history and mission in Toronto. The Sisters of Life count among their numbers a woman from our Parish here in Mattawa who is soon to take her final profession. This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join
