Remain in me

April 27, 2016 6:00 am

“Remain in me, as I remain in you. Just as a branch cannot bear fruit on its own unless it remains on the vine, so neither can you unless you remain in me. I am the vine, you are the branches. Whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit, because without me you can do nothing.” (JN 15: 4-5)

All our activity and “fruits we should bear” comes from our relationship with Our Lord. The more we are connected, the more we are in love with Him, and the more fruit He can produce. We are “branches,” not the vine, and not only do we remain in Him, but He also loves to remain in us, “because without Him we can do nothing.”

“Remain in me, as I remain in you, says the Lord; whoever remains in me will bear much fruit.” (Gospel Acclamation)
