FIFTH SUNDAY OF EASTER (B) May 2, 2021

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

Jude Siciliano, OP

 

From today’s Gospel reading:

 

Jesus said, “I am the true vine and my Father is the vine grower. 

He takes away every branch in me that does not bear fruit,

and every one that does he prunes so that it bears more fruit.

 

Reflection:

 

If God has any “pruning” to do so that we can become more fruitful disciples of Jesus, it can happen when we are attentive to the Word at our Eucharist.  What we hear may help us realize how often we have missed or ignored God’s gracious outreach to us.  Having heard that Word will keep us connected to Jesus the Vine and give us renewed energy and desire to bear fruit as his disciples.

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • When have I felt God has spoken a special word to me?

  • What have I done to respond to what I have heard?
