Brothers and Sisters,


Wow!  I just realized that God needs me!


A vine cannot bear fruit without branches.  The stalk only holds the branches, but it is the branches that bear the fruit.  In other words, God counts on you to cooperate with him in order to bear good fruit.  Otherwise, the great gift of his salvation, his love, will not be seen by the world.  Its people will not be saved and the juices of his love will be wasted.  Jesus wants to bring forth fruit in you and in me.  He wishes us not to yield wild grapes that are good for nothing, but rather good fruit that does not spoil.  We, as Church, exist as shoots on Christ the Vine, precisely that we might yield this abundant fruit.  So, let’s get on with it!  When building up the Kingdom of God there can be no thought of retirement.



Your Priest,

Fr. Paul
