The Fifth Sunday
of Easter

2nd Reading from 1st John
"Children, let us love not in word or speech but in deed and truth."
I will fulfill my vows before those who fear the LORD.
   The lowly shall eat their fill;
they who seek the LORD shall praise him:
   “May your hearts live forever!”
Response: I will praise you, Lord, in the assembly of your people.
Vine and the Branches with Fr. Barron
“I am the Vine, and you are the branches.” Jesus is not simply an inspiring teacher to whom we listen. He is a force in which we participate, a body in which we are cells and molecules, a river in which we swim. There is an organic relationship between Jesus and his creation. That is why Jesus can make the startling statements that he makes in today’s Gospel. Our existence, our life, our thought – all of this comes from the Logos, and apart from Him, we can bear no fruit.

Mindfulness meditation: Being still in the presence of God 
To him alone shall bow down
   all who sleep in the earth;
before him shall bend
   all who go down into the dust.
