In Sunday's Gospel John 15:9-17 Jesus command his disciples to love one another. Jesus affirm that he is known by the Father and that his disciples will know the Father by knowing Jesus. Jesus reminds his disciples that this knowledge is to be expressed in love. Those who know Jesus well—and Jesus says that his disciples do know him—will love one another. Knowledge leads to love, which leads to action. John reminds his community that Jesus taught that love is the sign of a true disciple and, thus, a true Christian. Even more, a true disciple shows a particular kind of love, sacrificial love.

Read Fr. Joshua Whitfield's message in this weekend's bulletin regarding the Gospel for the 5th Sunday of Easter....

"Paul gives us the image of the Church as the “body” of Christ. John gives us the image of “vine and branches.” Both depict our communion in Christ, our organic mystical union in him.
The image from John’s Gospel of vine and branches, of course, intimates the Eucharist—the blood of the vine is the blood of the Christ flowing through the branches. It’s a beautiful image of union, as I said, describing how we “remain” in the Son who himself “remains” in the Father because the Spirit “remains” on Christ.
But then there’s the imagery of “pruning” and of “bearing fruit.” We make a mistake when we read these words abstractly as merely advice about suffering and perseverance. Jesus is not talking about overcoming difficulty, but about discipleship. He’s talking about following Christ.
Pruning and bearing fruit are images of his death and resurrection; he’s inviting us to participate in the Passion. He’s not talking in general terms about random suffering or adversity; he’s talking about the Cross, and he’s asking if you’re ready to carry yours. Are you ready for pruning? Are you ready to bear fruit?
Those are the questions: Are you a branch of the vine? Are you ready for your cross, your pruning? Do you want to bear Christian fruit, the only kind that comes after pruning? Do you want to be a genuine disciple? That’s what Christ is asking you today. What’s your answer?
Have a blessed week!"
pax,
Fr. Joshua

Sunday's Gospel Jesus teaches that he is the vine and that his disciples are the branches. Jesus teaches his disciples that his relationship with them will not end after his death; he will remain with them always. This unity between Jesus and his disciples is the basis for their ability to continue to do the work that he began.

St. Rita Catholic Community, Dallas

Gather + Worship + Serve + Renew

Welcome to St. Rita! We’re a vibrant Catholic community located in the heart of North Dallas, a historic community but also vibrant and fresh! A welcome place for people of all ages and all walks of life, we’re a community of Catholic Christians on fire for Jesus, committed to serving God and neighbor in our city and in our world.

Our Vision for the sort of community we strive to be can be shared in four words: Gather, Worship, Serve, Renew. As Catholics, our purpose is to be a community that welcomes and gathers all who will be drawn by our love and kindness, open to any and all. We gather first to worship God in Christ in the Mass and in the other liturgies of the Church. As Catholics, ours is the faith of the apostles, found throughout the Catholic world, and which we share in communion with our Holy Father, Pope Francis. But of course, our worship sends us out in service. Each of us are called and expected to serve in some capacity, serving those in need, serving each other, and the common good. And this we do, because through worship and service, we become people of renewal, renewing ourselves in Christ and the world by our love.

That’s it, simple! At St. Rita, we GATHER, WORSHIP, SERVE, and RENEW! Now the only question is this: Is God calling you? We believe he is, and so we invite you to discover Christ with us and to discover the Church, and the renewed you! It’s an adventure, this life of grace. Come, journey with us!
