John 15 speaks of the Father’s pruning fruitful branches. One thing we draw from this is that our sufferings have wise and loving intentions and good ends. But there’s something deeper here: Trinitarian life. Abiding and pruning go hand in hand; the Father’s pruning is not separate from our union with the Son, and the fullness of life, love and joy that we have in him by his Spirit and through one another.
