Opening Liturgy-Fifth Sunday of Easter
May 2, 2021 – FIFTH SUNDAY OF EASTER
In the Gospel today we hear Jesus say that he is the vine and his disciples are the branches. He tells them that those who remain on the vine will bear much fruit.
Saul of Tarsus persecuted the early church, trying to destroy the blossoming vine. But in today’s first reading, after his conversion and baptism, Saul – now Paul – boldly preaches in the Lord’s name.
We also hear John assure us that if we keep God’s commandments we will remain in the Lord, remain on the vine, bearing fruit.
