Earth-Mom and Today's Gospel
Jesus comes from heaven, and he is of the earth??? Got me thinking. We look at Moms who are into recycling, into herbal supplements, wear natural material; and those of us who seem to "be above it" view this mom as a nut. They call her Earth-Mom behind her back in the most derisive ways. But if we really look at the Earth-Mom we see someone that is being talked about in this Gospel. An Earth-Mom by definition is someone who combines both the maternal and sensual, she is whole in her self. She is someone who values fertility. She protects her family, friends, her community, the world, loves all, and tries to be a good example of someone who lives passionately by her principles. She is looked down upon but does not seem to care, or have it affect her or her mission. This is woman/a mom has heard her calling to be Priest, Prophet and Queen as it was spoken to her and she is living it.
Jesus is fully man and fully God: he is from heaven and of earth.
