“I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.”. – John 15:5
The tree in our image is dynamic. Most of the year it has four green fruit. But there are certain seasons or days such as the Day of Pentecost or All Saints Day when it has 12 red fruit - days that signify celebration and growth for the Church. It also originates from the cross because as we grow and mature in Christ, we are sent out in service and mission to the world.
