5th sunday of Easter
Readings: Acts 9:26-31; John 3:18-24; John 15:1-8
Originally delivered on May 1, 1988
In the first reading, we hear about Paul’s conversion. We are invited to examine if we are being too nice, rather than making some uneasy. We have been baptized and anointed in Confirmation, but are we passionate for Jesus? In the Gospel, we hear that if we live as His branch on the His vines, that we will be animated by the Spirit of Jesus and our prayers will be answered.
