Fifth Sunday of Easter
Sunday, May 2, 2021
Jesus teaches that he is the vine and that his disciples are the branches.
In today’s passage, Jesus teaches his disciples that his relationship with them will not end after his death; he will remain with them always. This unity between Jesus and his disciples is the basis for their ability to continue to do the work that he began. Similarly, Jesus’ presence with us through the Gift of the Holy Spirit enables us to continue the work of love and reconciliation that he began.
Gospel Reflection for Kids: Fifth Sunday of Easter
In today’s Gospel, Jesus calls himself the strong vine, and we are the branches of the vine. To be our best selves, the best persons God created us to be, we must remain on the vine, connected to the vine, gathering life from it.With Jesus’ help, we can do good things and be like him. What will you do this week?
