Hi all, i have 2 qs.
in the begining of Passion week, i think around Monday, we read the passage of how Christ cursed the fig tree. why did he do that?
and directly after that, he goes and cleanses the temple from the thieves. in the begining of the monday of passion week, we read from genesis: the story of the creation, but not the fall yet. then from the wisdom of solomon and how the fear of the Lord is the beginign of wisdom. then the homily of St. shenouti about sitting with yourself and seeing what you offered to your guardian angel to the Lord that day,
how are these passages all related?
