Homily given at the 7:00 p.m.
Life Teen Mass on Sunday, May 6, 2012, the Fifth Sunday of Easter,
by Fr. Ed Fride, Pastor, Christ the King Catholic Church. Fr. Ed
preaches on the Gospel of the day, John 15:1-8, in which Jesus
tells his disciples, "I am the Vine, you are the branches." We are
called to bear fruit, which is only possible if we are fed by the
sweet sap of the Vine. He invites us to compare our lives to the
post-Pentecost apostles and see where we need more of the Spirit in
order to bear the fruit Jesus intends for us.
