A Reflection for the Week

When pruning a fruit tree
the aim is not to inflict damage to the tree,
but to rid it of dead or superfluous branches,
so that it can produce more or better fruit.
Lent is a time forspiritual pruning.
there may be things in our l;ives that sap our energy
and diminish our spiritual fruitfulness.
what do I need to prune away from my life this Lent ?
so that I may become a more fruitful member of the branches of Christ
the true vine !
