Seeing Your Life through the Lens of the Gospels - John 15:1-8

Read 17 Times

John 15:1-8


In a relationship, connectedness is important. Relationships cannot be taken for granted and need time and care to be life-giving. What does your experience tell you of the truth of this in your relationships - with God - with your friends - with your family - with communities or groups to which you belong?

Over the past year our usual relationships have been disrupted by coronavirus restrictions on social gatherings. How has this impacted on your family, parish and other groups to which you belong? What creative ways have you, and others, devised to keep your social life alive?

In THE JOY OF THE GOSPEL Pope Francis wrote "I invite all Christians, everywhere, at this very moment to a renewed personal encounter with Jesus Christ." He goes on to suggest that when individuals, or groups, focus on Jesus there is an increase of energy and vitality. Have you seen this happen?

The parable also reminds us that we are not the source of our own life. It is a gift from God, from our parents, and from all who have nourished us. Give thanks for those who have been a source of life for you.
