Where Elijah slept in the desert


Image: (c) 2002 Steve Baskauf

Still enough time left before leaving for Mass this weekend to look over the scriptures and let them steep in our minds and hearts before hearing them proclaimed in the liturgy. You can find the texts and background material on them here, including hints for helping children prepare to hear the Lord's Word on this Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time.

That tree above? That's a desert broom tree - just the kind of tree Elijah was sleeping under when the Lord gave him food and drink from heaven (see the first scripture for this weekend!)

(I wanted to use a beautiful image as the graphic for this post but a request for permission from the artist has not received a reply. But I can link you to it at his site, StudiObrien, the work of Michael O'Brien.
