Easter5 – The Vine, the branches and Motherhood (6:20)
Easter, 5th Sunday. Some explorers searched the New World for the Tree of Life which was supposed to give immortality to those who drank its sap. We have this tree among us — Jesus. He is the vine, we are the branches. Jesus gives his own divine life to his disciples. In the same way, mothers give of themselves to that their children might live. Thank you to all mothers.

This is my first recorded homily in two weeks. Apparently, taking a little time off seems to improve the content.
