Taste and See: Fruitful love

Vineyard, Beziers

The Communion Antiphon on Sunday, the 5th Sunday of Easter, had us sing of our unity with the Lord – his gift,our blessing.

Communion Antiphon

I am the true vine and you are the branches, says the Lord.
Whoever remains in me, and I in him, bears fruit in plenty, alleluia.

Cf. Jn 15: 1, 5

In the Gospel we were reminded of the Lord’s command that we should love as we have been loved. In the living of love we are as one. The communion antiphon presents that unity using the metaphor of vine and branches and fruitfulness.

It reminds that the love we receive and the love we are to live is not just for us, but is ours to share with others. Love is to be fruitful in us, for the benefit of others.
