From today’s principal service Gospel:

Jesus said “I am the true vine, and my Father is the vine-grower. He removes every branch in me that bears no fruit. Every branch that bears fruit he prunes to make it bear more fruit.” (John’s Gospel, chapter 15, verses 1-2, NRSV)

Pruning hurts, but if we stick with it, then comes the fruit.
