About Today Readings

Our Lady of Fatima

Acts 15:1-6. Let us go rejoicing to the house of the Lord – Psalm 121(122):1-5. John 15:1-8.

I am the vine, you are the branches

It’s a constant battle sweeping up the dying leaves and keeping the area clean around the grapevine. While it’s past time to cut it back I am always a little reluctant. It seems so sad – a reminder that winter is well on its way. Yet the pruning is essential if it is to bear good fruit in the summer. I know that as long as the main vine stays strong then I’m assured of fruit and shade. Today’s Gospel tells me that if I stay strong with the main vine that is Jesus – praying, keeping the faith and his Word – then I can be assured of the fruit of his love.
