Picking apples at a nearby orchard produced "food for thought". Seeking the choicest apples reminds us of the command Our Lord gave to the Apostles - to bring forth fruit. Good Fruit - "fruit that would remain" - not old fruit that decays and dies away.
Our Lady brought forth the most Perfect and Holy Fruit - Our Savior Jesus Christ. And as She was "full of Grace" and imitated Her Divine Son most perfectly, She brought forth the the most delightful and holy fruit - virtues in the highest degree. If we remain under Her Mantle and beg her intercession, she will help us also to attain the fruit that we were created for - holiness.
