The Vine and the Branches
Fr. Paul Borowski, CSsR, Provincial Superior of the Redemptorists of the Baltimore Province, gave brilliant homilies addressing the withdrawal of the Redemptorist Order at all our Masses on the 5th Sunday of Easter. Reflecting on the Gospel – John 1:1-8, Jesus’ discourse on the vine and the branches, he made a pivotal announcement to the St. Clements Parish. The center of his message was that the Redemptorist Order will no longer staff the parish. This point was placed in the context of the Jesus’ teaching: He is the true vine, remain in His Love, be rooted, grounded, and bear much fruit.
These are his words:
There are many questions that the coming transition raises. We will address them as our future path becomes clearer.
