5th Sunday of Easter - B (April 29, 2018)
“You are the Branches”
Jesus speaks of himself as the true vine and the disciples the branches.
This image made me think of the other branches, the friends with whom I share the connection in Jesus, the people who help connect me with Jesus.
Today’s first reading gives an example of such a friend – Barnabas who helps connect Paul with the Christian community.
And the second reading reminds us of Jesus’ commandment “love one another.”
Let us thank God for those who lead and connect us to the true vine.
