When “Cain” = (black smith) = smith
murdered his brother
"Abel" = (Shepherd)
“Cain” was sent off to the east, because he was not sorry, and blamed others for his murder. Needing salvation he had to wait.
In the East we know there were Magi, they were experts of the stars, and in astrology there was a time set in the stars that a divine being would be born, they knew the time frame.
These Magi, followed a Star, that brought them to the Manger of Baby Jesus. This bright star has actually been proven to hapen give and take a few years. But the Star was more than a Star, it was a time in the past that I believe Jupitor lined up with Venus and many stars so there was a massive bright light in the skies for a period of time.
These Eastern people knew of this day, far in advance, and knew what they were going to see, this divine baby boy. They were well prepared and brought gifts.
Perhaps these were the “Cain People” who had to wait a long period of time for there time to be saved, through the divinity of this baby boy who us Christians call Christ.
The Shepherds came from the west, to find the head shepherd, the high priest.
They were from the Jewish roots and they came from the knowledge of Jewish Tradition. These Shepherds could have been the so called decendents of “Abel” who were given a special gift from God. The ability to have a religion like no other people, not only a religion but a blood line, protected for all time by God. Didn’t God make a covenant with Abraham?
So here is baby Jesus wrapped up and placed in a manger. The manger is a feeding troth and Jesus is the “living bread” born in Bethlaham “House of bread” placed in a manger “served on a feeding troth” for all people.
As Catholics we participate in the Eucharist, which is the bread of life, for us to eat, eating the flesh of Christ, for all who believe in Jesus Christ and His Church. A universal Church bringing together all people, races, cultures, and customs.
