4th Sunday of Easter - B (April 29, 2012)

John 10: 11 - 18

It's the Same Love 

The Good Shepherd knows his sheep the same way Father knows him and the same way he knows the Father.      "I am the good shepherd, and I know mine and mine know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father."

That is how intimately the Good Shepherd loves us.  That is how intimately the Father loves us.

That is why the Good Shepherd can lay down his life for us.

And no one is excluded from this love.  "I have other sheep that do not belong to this fold.  These also I must lead, ... and there will be one flock, one shepherd."
