1 Saint Paul Parish The Catholic Community of Princeton LIVING BRANCHES The Gospel and second reading for this Fifth Sunday of Easter emphasize the need for us to remain in Christ, and he in us. This shared life finds expression in the image of the one vine and many branches. We become living branches of the vine, members of the Body of Christ through baptism, Eucharist, and confirmation, sacraments of sharing God's own life. The First Letter of John describes the fruit of this vine as active love of neighbor: "And his commandment is this: we should believe... and love one another" (1 John 3:23). Our first reading from Acts shows us an example of someone who shares in Christ's life in the person of Saint Paul. Paul's fearless witness, even at the risk of his life, is proof to everyone that the risen Lord's Spirit truly fills him with life and is bearing fruit in him. Copyright (c) J. S. Paluch Co., Inc.

2 Welcome C Rev. Msgr. Joseph N. Rosie Pastor (609) Rev. Carlo Calisin Parochial Vicar (609) Rev. Miguel Valle Parochial Vicar (609) Deacons Mr. Frank Crivello (609) Mr. Jim Knipper (609) A Message from Msgr. Joe As we gather today in Christ s name, we can reflect on the fact that ours is but one of many, many communi es throughout the world that are gathering today in the same way. Indeed, Christ is the true vine and there are many branches. As we con nue today, perhaps our prayer can be that each of the branches grow stronger on the vine, and that all might grow closer together as we share Christ s mission on this earth to share the Good News and witness of the resurrec on. The Nigh ngale and the Rose by Oscar Wilde is based on the need for a student to get a red rose in the middle of winter for his beloved. It narrates how the only way for the nigh ngale to get the red rose is to nourish the rosebush with her own blood. The gospel this weekend presents the image of the vine in a quite similar ar s c style. As a logical statement, the vine should yield grapes. However, speaking of Israel as a vine, the prophet Isaiah sung, I sing for my friend, my confrere s song for his vineyard. My friend he had a vineyard high up on a fer le slope. He dug it, cleared it of stones and planted it with merlot; he built a tower inside it, hewed out a wine vat within. He waited for grapes to come, they came sour. Through this poe c parable, the accusa on was clear: God has constantly loved his people, and the people have not produced fruit. There was a season of winter during the Second Temple Judaism period. There was an expectancy of spring, and a hope for a change. And in the midst of these sterile mes, our Lord comes proclaiming: I am the true vine; my Father is the vine grower [And] you are the branches. This was a climate altera on. The level of nurturing the vine has gone beyond the effort of gardener. The caring has gone (Continued on page 7) Parish Announcements Lectio Divina: Praying with Scripture Lec o Divina is the prac ce of praying with scripture; it combines reading the text in its context, listening to phrases that speak out to us, medita ng on the text, and engaging with God in prayer over it.

How can we deprive our planter of delicious wine? He is like that li le nigh ngale who fed the plant with her own blood. The realiza on of having been spiritually gra ed in Jesus Christ gives a new perspec ve of our own existence. It reminds us of our dependency on the Lord, it encourages us to give abundant fruit, and it makes us willing to be pruned by God. Be happy, cried the Nigh ngale, be happy; you shall have your red rose. I will build it out of music by moonlight, and stain it with my own heart's blood. All that I ask of you in return is that you will be a true lover, for Love is wiser than Philosophy.

8 Faith Formation Mr. John McGuire Director of Religious Education princeton.org (609) Mrs. Kaitlyn Mayer Confirmation Coordinator (609) Mrs. Maureen Sano Administrative Assistant (609) Oficina de Catecismo en Español Ms. María Sara Cortes Hispanic Religious Ed., Coordinator ext. 153 A Message from John Michael McGuire Why did Jesus give us his body and blood in the form of bread and wine? Every year as we join the children of our parish in receiving their First Eucharist; I ve found myself reflec ng on this very ques on, and every me I find myself thinking up a new answer. One year I had decided that it was because bread and wine are prominent in the celebra on of the Passover, and Jesus as an observant Jew would celebrate Passover as his Last Supper. Another year I had decided that it was because bread and wine are available to so many cultures, these are pre y universal foods, and if Jesus made such a stark claim as unless you eat my flesh, and drink my blood, you will not have life within you he would make sure that the items needed were readily available to all. While I haven t abandoned these reasons, my reflec on has borne new fruit. What does it take to make bread? It takes a lot of work from various individuals. Someone has to grow the grain, another mills it to flour, and s ll another bakes it. How about wine? You have grape growers, pickers, stompers, and s ll others ferment the wine and age it. Between the blessings of a good harvest, beneficial condi ons, and the labor of a community we are presented with the food that we need to sustain us. It is the communal nature of these items that Jesus has selected to be transformed into his body and blood, that make them the perfect meal to share in remembrance of him. We find this in one of the prayers from the Liturgy of the Eucharist when the priest says, Blessed are you, Lord God of all crea on, for through your goodness we have received the bread we offer you: fruit of the earth and work of human hands, it will become for us the bread of life. This week let s pray for the children of our parish who are celebra ng the gi of Christ s body and blood for the first me and for our en re community as we seek to set an example of faith for our younger brothers and sisters. God Bless, and have a great week. Summer Vacation The last classes for PREP for the year are Sunday, May 5 and Tuesday, May 7.

12 Pastoral Hispana Padre Miguel Valle (609) ext. 119 Horas de Oficiando Atención: 9:am a 4pm. Domingos: con cita previamente establecida Sra. Nidia Beltran Asistente (609) Servicios de Secretaria Domingos, 8:00 pm 10:00 pm Lunes, 7:00 pm 9:30 pm en la Oficina Hispana Dias en semana: con cita previa. Mensaje del Padre Miguel Valle El evangelio nos llama a ser Cris anos de pura cepa, cris anos unidos a Cristo y creadores de unidad, que reciben de Cristo la savia y la transmiten a los demás. Para San Juan, la unidad en la Iglesia era de una importancia especial porque algunos cris anos se habían salido ya de la Iglesia; por ello insiste en el evangelio que Jesús desea que haya un solo rebano y un solo pastor que reúna a todos los hijos de Dios en torno a el. Los sarmientos están unidos a la vid mucho mas fuertemente que las ramas de cualquier árbol a su tronco. La poda es necesaria para que la vid de fruto; la vid se poda mas radicalmente que otras plantas, quitándole todas las ramas superfluas para que produzca mas fruto; la uva (como el trigo y la oliva) debe ser aplastada para que de mosto y vino. Por todo esto, la vid es tan Buena metáfora para la vida Cris ana. El texto de la parábola de la vid y los sarmientos repite siete veces la palabra permanecer en la vid y en mi Esta parábola marca la parte central de todo el discurso de la ul ma cena, y condensa el mensaje de Jesús a los discípulos sobre el amor, la unidad y el sacrificio. Los primeros cris anos permanecían unidos en la oración, doctrina y enseñanza de los apóstoles, el tes monio, el compar r y el par r del pan: La oración, doctrina, trabajo apostólico, el amor y los sacramentos, nos unen a Cristo y a los demás, las que no par cipan de la oración, el amor, la enseñanza, la convivencia y los sacramentos, acaban secándose y son separadas de la vid. No basta ser católico nominal, bau zado; hay que ser católico comprome do vivo y ac vo. Quizás esto explica porque algunos católicos estériles acaban a veces fuera de la Iglesia; es porque nunca estuvieron realmente dentro. Jesús fue la primera vid que el Padre podo en la pasión, y el primero en dar frutos. Las pruebas, tribulaciones, persecuciones y desa os, nos podan para que demos mas frutos, a semejanza de Jesús. Teniendo en cuenta el modo de hablar de Jesús, hoy uno podrís decir Yo soy la electricidad, y ustedes son los electrodomés cos que tenemos en cada casa, la radio, television, tostadora, lavadora podrán ser muy hermosos y lujosos, pero serán inú les sino están conectados y enchufados a la corriente eléctrica que les da vida y los hace ú les para las personas.
