Stay Tuned to Jesus

Fr.-JeromeDear friends: During the Easter Season the liturgy brings us closer to the resurrected Jesus and makes us realize that we are always united to Him and Him to us. He gives the invitation to all of us to enter into the true discipleship. On His mission, He sends His disciples two by two and teaches them to proclaim His kingdom as a community. He tells His chosen ones that where two or three gather in His name, He is present in their midst. He takes the initiative to unite Himself with us. Our true living comes by opening ourselves to God and to the world by becoming persons open to His will. Jesus says in the gospel, I and the Father are one, a close identification. At the same time Jesus invites His followers to identify themselves with Him and His mission. In the gospel we hear Jesus say that He is the Vine and we are the branches. Without His initiative of being pruned, no branch can bear any fruit. He says that each one must bear fruit to the glory of the Father. Let us try to stay connected to Him to bear abundant fruit.
