11.6.16 - "Death & Life and Bearing Fruit"  (John 12:23-28)

11.6.16 - "Death & Life and Bearing Fruit" (John 12:23-28)

John 12:23-28 Some Greeks (Gentiles/aka people not of Jesus' tribe) show up seeking the opportunity to see Jesus.  Jesus responds by saying his time has come and then gives a strange saying about a seed dying to be fruitful. What does it mean to die to come to life? How does death bring life? Let us consider what we have seen in the life of Jesus alongside the other Biblical stories.  Let us reflect on our Tradition.  Let us look at the lives of the saints around us who help us Reason with our call to follow Jesus.  We must understand that we are called to die, to come to life, and to be fruitful.
