Carmel God's Garden

From the garden of Eden to the parables of Jesus, the Bible is filled with spiritual references to agriculture. On today's feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, we remember the prophet Elijah and the meaning of the word Carmel: God's Garden...

The true prophet (based on Matt 7:15-20)

In order for a tree to bear good fruit its foundation needs to be nourished by water, sunlight and the right temperature. If not its days are numbered. In order for a prophet to be found true his foundation needs to be nourished by humility, forgiveness and purity of heart. If not his days are numbered as well and his life becomes nothing but smoke, soon ready to disappear.
