    Gardeners love good soil because it bears good fruit!

    The term “humility” comes from the Latin word humilitas, a noun related to the adjective humilis, which may be translated as “humble”, but also as “grounded”, “from the earth”, or “low”, since it derives in turns from humus (earth). See the English humus.[1]

    good soil = humus = humility (humble)

    Seeds and Fruits

    Genesis 3:15 ~
    “I will put enmities betwen thee and the woman, and thy seed and her seed;…” (the devil’s seed (his followers), and the Immaculate’s seed (devoted children).

    “Hail Mary full of grace, the Lord is with thee, blessed is the fruit (underscoring fruit) of thy womb Jesus….”

    Of all of God’s creature’s there will never be found one with greater humility than the Holy Virgin Mary! (underscoring Mary’s humility…she receives the good seed Jesus ~ the tree of Life!)

    Tree of Life (Apocalypse/Revelations 22:2) ~
    “in the midst of the street thereof, and on both sides of the river, was the tree of life, bearing twelve fruits,….”

    Matthew 11:29 ~

    “….learn of Me, because I am meek and humble of heart:….”

    Bad soil ~ lovers of power, wealth, and honors….
    Good soil ~ lovers of Jesus and Mary! (Humility!)
