We are called, through our Baptism, to live in and by the Presence of Christ in Word and Sacrament. Through His call we live, gratefully, the life God has given us and proclaim the Good News through our word and deed.
As the vine represented the ancient community, Israel, so now Jesus, the true Vine, incorporates the new People of God. Branches are essentially correlated within him, but in order to bear fruit. Our reading from Acts shows Barnabas bravely introducing Paul into the cautious Jerusalem community. All must bear fruit or perish.
