Hi, if you would, kindly explain or expound on what this phrase means:
"When the moment of her delivery approached, she departed in the middle
of the night from the house of Zachary, and she walked out of Jerusalem. And she saw a
dried up palm tree; and when Mary sat at the foot of this tree, it immediately bloomed
anew and was covered with leaves and greenery, and it bore a great abundance of fruit
through the operation of God’s power. And God called forth a spring of living water next
to it, and when the pains of childbirth tormented Mary, she squeezed the palm tree tightly
with her hands".
