Gospel : John 15:1-8
Fullness of Life
“I am the vine, you are the branches. Whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit”.
We all want a life that bears fruit. But, what kind of fruit do you dream for your life? Economic success? Fame? Happiness? How about a life that brings others to God and so gives them what no one can take away from them--eternal life?
To draw others to God it all starts from the inside out. Our daily dialogue with God enriches us so much that it propels us to share this joy, peace and love we have received . However, we are always in a battle against principalities. Therefore, let us guard ourselves to remain connected with the source.
Holy Trinity and Mama Mary, help us to persevere in our journey. Guard and preserve us all the days of our lives. Amen.
