Jn 15: 1-8

”I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinegrower. He removes every branch in me that bears no fruit. Every branch that bears fruit he prunes to make it bear more fruit. You have already been cleansed by the word that I have spoken to you. Abide in me as I abide in you. Just as the branch cannot bear fruit by itself unless it abides in the vine, neither can you unless you abide in me.

I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit, because apart from me you can do nothing. Whoever does not abide in me is thrown away like a branch and withers; such branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned. If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask for whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.

My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit and become my disciples.

Remain in him

The Holy Trinity is present in our lives and alive in this passage. Whether it is the creator of the vine, the vine itself, or the spirit from the vine that allows us to grow as branches. All of us are linked and in relationship with God and one another. God remains in me, but do I always choose to remain in him? The honest answer, I pray, is most of the time. This is why I do the Jesuit daily examen prayer at the end of every day. Through the examen, I reflect on the moments during my day when I remained in God and what moments I did not so that everything I am and do in this life is for the greater glory of God (A.M.D.G).

Prayer

Dear Lord, during this Easter Season we prayer for the desire and ability to search for your presence in our everyday lives within our relationships and in all that we do. For it is only through you and with you, can we live a life of unconditional love and hope glorifying your name.
