FAITH BOOK

FIFTH SUNDAY OF EASTER (B) APRIL 29, 2018

Acts 9: 26-31; Psalm 22; I John 3: 18-24; John 15: 1-8

By: Jude Siciliano, OP

 

Mini-reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run. "Faith Book" is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.

 

From today’s Gospel reading:

 

Jesus said to his disciples:

"Remain in me, as I remain in you."

 

Reflection:

 

When Jesus reminds us to "remain in me," he wants us to "stay in touch" with him. But we know that we don’t have to move away to lose touch. We might continue going to church regularly, but lose touch with Christ when we just go through the motions of religion, without our heart and mind being fully in it. In fact, we are not "remaining" in him; his words don’t nourish and direct us.

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • Has my religious practice become formalistic and merely habit?

  • What first step should I make to get "back in touch" with Jesus and a living faith?
