Few of us, even when we meditate on the image of the vine and branches, stop to 
really think about how God “prunes” us. For some there is the danger of thinking that we are already producing fruit for the kingdom, in deed and truth as John says, perhaps raising a family, being active in our parish, and so on. But even those branches which are bearing fruit, the Gospel tells us, can be pruned to produce still more. Today Saul, freshly “pruned” by his conversion, arrives in Jerusalem and meets resistance. Since he had been persecuting Christians, this was only natural. But even after he is accepted and begins to bear fruit, he meets further adversity, and his letters are
filled with many accounts of how his trials “pruned” him to produce 
greater fruit for the kingdom. Like him, as long as we
remain in Christ we will 
continue to bear fruit and, when the
will of the Father determines it is time to prune us, the strength
of the true vine must enable us to endure it.




We honor our moms, stepmothers, foster mothers, godmothers and grandmothers. Why not with prayers and words of appreciation?  There are also the women we know, who wanted to be mothers, but for one reason or another life did not gift them that gift.

If you would like your mother or any of the above mentioned women prayed for during a 9-Day Novena starting on Mother's Day, then please pick up a beautiful inspirational card from our Parish Center Office or in the church foyar.  Take a card, fill out her name on the outer envelope and drop it off either in the collection baskets at church or in the mail box outside the Parish Center Office. What a wonderful way to honor and remember these special women in our lives.
