Daily homily thoughts, 5/16

From the second Responsory in Matins today:

Live in me as I live in you.
— Just as a branch cannot bear fruit of itself apart from the vine, so you cannot bear fruit unless you live on in me, alleluia.

I chose you to go out and bear fruit, a fruit that will last.
— Just as a branch cannot bear fruit of itself apart from the vine, so you cannot bear fruit unless you live on in me, alleluia.
