Homily Thoughts for May 3 2015…Vine & Branches

Jesus was a great teacher because he used the things of every day life to teach us about God. 

Today he speaks of how we must remain connected to him like branches on a vine. Visualize a bunch of grapes. Remove the branch from the vine & the grape withers & becomes sour, and even turns into a raisin. It must remain connected in order to bear good fruit. 

What disconnects us from God?
