“I am the vine, you are the branches. Whoever remains in me, with me in him, bears fruit in plenty; for cut off from me you can do nothing (Jn 15:5).
To Christ the living vine, we pray:
R. O Lord, come to our help!
You are the vine and we the branches:
– may we always be one in you. R.
You have watered your vine with the living water that flows from the cross:
– may we always live in you. R.
You have nourished and guarded your vine in faithful love:
– may we always bear fruit for your glory. R.
May mercy, peace, and love be ours in abundance. Amen. (cf. Jude 2)
