Week of Prayer for Christian Unity
Ich bin der wahre Weinstock und mein Vater der Weingärtner.
Bleibt in mir und ich in euch.
Wie die Rebe keine Frucht bringen kann aus sich selbst, wenn sie nicht am Weinstock bleibt, so auch ihr nicht, wenn ihr nicht an mir bleibt.
Ich bin der Weinstock, ihr seid die Reben. Wer in mir bleibt und ich in ihm, der bringt viel Frucht; denn ohne mich könnt ihr nichts tun. Amen
I am the true vine, and my Father is the vine grower. He removes every branch in me that bears no fruit. Every branch that bears fruit he prunes to make it bear more fruit. You have already been cleansed by the word that I have spoken to you.
Abide in me as I abide in you.
Just as the branch cannot bear fruit by itself unless it abides in the vine, neither can you unless you abide in me. I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit, because apart from me you can do nothing. Whoever does not abide in me is thrown away like a branch and withers; such branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned. If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask for whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. My Father is glorified by this, that you bear
much fruit and become my disciples. As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you; abide in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. I have said these things to you so that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be complete. This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. I do not call you servants any longer, because the servant does not know what the master is doing; but I have called you friends, because I have made known to you everything that I have heard from my Father. You did not choose me but I chose you. And I appointed you to go and bear fruit, fruit that will last, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask him in my name. I am giving you these commands so that you may love one another.

Father Westphal's homily messages: January 3, 2021.
Father W's message from his homily of January 3, 2021
Epiphany means "awakening"; such, it summarizes our spiritual journey... it was the “star” at Bethlehem that revealed the fact of the Saviour’s birth. Keep your eyes on the "star", the "star" within you. Once you meet Christ, you will never go back again. Our lives will change forever.
Want to reach humanity?
Be open to God's grace in your life.
We are to live here on earth as travelers bound for a better place.
Heaven is our destination and home.
“I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you."
