Are we bearing fruit?

If we are bearing fruit… what does it look like?

Is the fruit you are bearing strong and healthy? Adhering to scripture and Holy Tradition?

Or is it moldy and stale, filled with personal doctrine and self interpretation of the scriptures based on backing up your worldly ideas of what Christianity looks like?

It is so easy to drop out and unplug during these uncertain times. To add insult to an already injurious situation there are ‘arm chair priests’ out there giving their own (usually nasty) interpretations of the situation. Ignore them all. Listen to YOUR priest, YOUR bishop and tune in to Liturgies being given at your parish if you cannot attend in person. If you cannot attend in person, there are monasteries that live-stream their services on Youtube.

Keep reading. Keep saying your prayers. Attend church even if it is via some sort of electronic service.

Do not allow your fruit to rot. Hang in there. Things will not always be this way.
