FOURTH SUNDAY OF EASTER; GOOD SHEPHERD SUNDAY

FOURTH SUNDAY OF EASTER; GOOD SHEPHERD SUNDAY
Hear my voice

We call this “Good Shepherd Sunday,” but these days you don’t see many shepherds in this part of the world, at least not the kind scripture is talking about. But it can still help to think about good shepherds, even if you don’t see any of them tending sheep in your neighborhood. The key is twofold: knowing who is in your care and having those in your care know and believe in you, and laying down your life for them. Sacrifice for others and mutual trust: It’s how our relationship with God works, and these values are the ones you can cultivate when people look to you to lead.

Today’s readings:Acts 13:14, 43-52; Revelation 7:9, 14b-17; John 10:27-30 (51).

“I have made you a light to the Gentiles . . . to the ends of the earth.”

Prepare the Word
