O Radix Jesse

O Root of Jesse, that stands for an ensign of the people, before whom the kings keep silence and unto whom the Gentiles shall make supplication: come, to deliver us, and tarry not. Amen.

Getting to the root of things is what counts. Getting to the root of things is the first step towards putting them right. In the coming one, we get to the root of holy governance. Jesse was the father of King David, the very source of Israel’s royalty. In the manger story of the next few days we learn that the root of right ruling is found in humility and service. Stooping to rule. Bending low in order to serve.
