On April 29, Fr. Ed Nowak mentioned the following in his homily.
I am the Vine, You are the Branches
A reflection and photo by Rich Slizeski
I have searched for You in my heart.
I have probed your wounds in my restless thoughts
that tire my being.
How right that you should bring me here
In this vineyard of early Spring.
In my troubled thoughts I almost passed you by
amid the countless rows of mangled branches and stock.
But I stopped for a while to sit on a rock,
too large to be moved by the caretaker’s hand…
And my eyes raised up from a moment’s silence
to see you there,
manifested in the simple lowly form of the vine!
Your body twisted in the curves of the stock,
The gnarls and shedding bark Your tormented flesh,
even a crown of splinters surround your head.
Your limbs stretch out
against the stake that holds you firm,
and the branches now pruned and lifeless
stand out like the spikes that pieced You.
I looked away
for it brought pain for me to see
this simple lowly form manifested in a vine…
Then I noticed how green were the fields of this vineyard.
I ran to the vine and probed its branches
and there at the bases of its pruned and lifeless stems
were buds of life ready to spring.
It was a sign of resurrection!
I thank You, Christ Crucified, for showing me
the mystery of Your death and sharing in it with me
the joy of Your life!
