Father Mike’s Weekly Message
Forth Sunday of Easter 2021
In this Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus tells us that he is the good Shepard. It’s not ironical that Jesus would use this character as a representation of himself. Shepard’s were very low in society’s ranking. They seldom lived indoors so that they could be with their sheep to protect them, and they were constantly on alert for any possible harm that could or might come to their sheep. They were his livelihood. This is the perfect image of our Lord Jesus.
When we truly look at this image of our Lord as the good Shepard, it does fit him perfectly. He came to earth to protect us from sin, to teach us the truth, and to guard us against the evil one.
Jesus, thank you for being our Good Shepard. Please always keep us in your flock and protect us from the evil one. Amen.
A blessed Easter season to all.
