“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)
Our Lord “remains in us.” He, Who is God and Who lives in Heaven, is—at the same moment—close to us and “remains in us” because He knows how important is His presence: “because without me you can do nothing.” Our mission is to “bear fruit”: “whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit.” When we are united with Him, we can change this world.
“Remain in me, as I remain in you, says the Lord; whoever remains in me will bear much fruit.” (Gospel Acclamation)
