We are living in a time where people are craving to restore relationships. Healthy relationships provide reassurance that you are loved, cared for and valued. The most important relationships we need to cultivate is our relationship with Jesus Christ. In 2012 Pope Benedict XVI shared the following message on Easter Sunday:
“A fruitful life comes from staying close to Jesus — Dear friends, every one of us is like a vine, which lives only if it is growing every day in prayer, participation in the sacraments, in charity, in its union with the Lord, and he who loves Jesus, the true vine, produces fruits of faith for an abundant spiritual harvest.”
