Fifth Sunday of Easter
Jesus tells us in todays Gospel that he remaims in us and if we remain in Him we will bear much fruit. Gathered together today, we are a visibile sign of a community who remains in thier Lord. May the sustenance we receive here from Word and Eucharist nourish us so that we may bear much fruit.
In order to flourish and bear fruit, the vine needs to be pruned. What in me needs to be pruned so that I can bear fruit to the fullest extent possible.
