As scripture records it is in God alone that we live and move and have our being. That is why we can never find true fulfillment in anything that is not God. When we start believing that the things of this world such as wealth, power, and fame, can make us truly happy we fail to realize that none of these things can really satisfy us because none of them are capable of giving us life. Only God can fill us with what we truly need. Only God can enable us to truly become all we can be. Jesus likens our relationship with Him as that between a vine and its branches. The branches cut off from the stem cannot survive on their own. They take their life from the common stem. While the stem can always grow new branches, the branches separated from the stem ultimately die. Thus, we are totally dependent on Christ. As St. Augustine noted “Our Lord’s words…were not: You can do little without me, but: You can do nothing. Little fruit or plenty, there can be neither without him, because without him nothing can be done.” The grace we receive enables us to do the good God calls us to do. God prunes us so that we can be more open to that grace that enables us to produce more fruit. Seeing ourselves as members of the Mystical Body of Christ, it is easy to see how the sacramental life of the Church flows into each of us. The sacraments, especially the most holy Eucharist, both enable us to bear the fruit that God knows we can and at the same time strengthens our relationship to Christ the head. Frequenting the sacraments strengthens us so that it is less like that we will be broken off from the stem.

Branches torn from the stem may still be saved provided they are grafted back on the stem in time. Jesus conferred on the Church the power to forgive sins for this reason. Jesus does not want any of us to perish. Once again, He knows each of us by name and considers us priceless. Only our own willfulness will cause us to be cast into the fire. Jesus has chosen us for eternal life. (To be continued)

APRIL 29, 2018________ LIVING BRANCHES

The Gospel and second reading for this Fifth Sunday of Easter emphasize the need for us to remain in Christ, and he in us. This shared life finds expression in the image of the one vine and many branches. We become living branches of the vine, members of the Body of Christ through baptism, Eucharist, and confirmation, sacraments of sharing God’s own life. The First Letter of John describes the fruit of this vine as active love of neighbor: “And his commandment is this: we should believe . . . and love one another” (1 John 3:23). Our first reading from Acts shows us an example of someone who shares in Christ’s life in the person of Saint Paul. Paul’s fearless witness, even at the risk of his life, is proof to everyone that the risen Lord’s Spirit truly fills him with life and is bearing fruit in him. Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co., Inc.

Right now, over 40 percent of dioceses in the United Sates are considered home mission territory because they are unable to fund the essential pastoral work needed in their communities. Your support funds programs, such as religious education, seminary formation, and lay ministry training, to build vibrant faith communities right here in the United States. Please by generous. More information can be found at www.usccb.org/home-missions. COME ONE, COME ALL, YOUNG AND OLD TO OUR PARISH CLEANUP DAY. It is next Saturday, May 5 starting around 8:30 or 8:45 (after the 8:00 am Mass). We offer weed pulling, bush trimming and much, much more! PRAYING FOR THE SICK AT MASS – As you may know, we have far too many persons on our sick list to pray for all of them individually during the Universal Prayer at Mass. Unfortunately, we often still have too many names listed in our petitions. From now on, we will limit the reading of names to persons who are new to the sicklist, those we know to be critically ill, those who are hospitalized or having surgery, and those near death. We will remove names after three weeks unless we know they remain hospitalized, their condition has worsened, or they are dying. Also, if you wish a friend or loved one’s name read, please be sure you have their permission. Sometimes people do not want their names read in public and we should respect their wishes and their privacy. Thanks for your understanding.

TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION In medieval times, one country, Scotland, linked its economy to the liturgy. Four holy days of the church calendar were keyed to the legal year. On these days, rents were due, clergy and servants were paid, and contracts and leases would begin or end. The term days were Pentecost (called Whitsunday), the Feast of Saint Martin on November 11 (Martinmas), the Feast of the Presentation on February 2 (Candlemas), and August 2 (Lammas), a harvest festival. On Lammas day, the first loaf of bread from the summer wheat harvest was given to the village priest. After the Reformation, which swept the Catholic festivals away, the term days were gradually detached from the old feasts. It was only in 1990 that the term days were anchored on the 28th of February, May, August, and November. Today the old Scottish universities are the last hold-outs, still naming their terms or semesters after the old festivals. Scottish students today may not know about the liturgical year, but they still call the fall term Martinmas, and the spring session Candlemas. —Rev. James Field, Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.
