4th Sunday of Easter - A - Good Shepherd Sunday (May 7, 2017)
“I came so that they might have life and have it more abundantly.”
The Gospel of last Sunday gives us some insights into the ways the Good Shepherd still gives us life abundantly – through his words, his Eucharist, and his presence in our daily life.
And as we receive the gift of abundant life, each follower of the Good Shepherd is also empowered to share this life with others.
When we speak, we can allow the Good Shepherd to speak through our voices. When we give ourselves to others, the Good Shepherd gives himself. When we love, it is with the love of the Good Shepherd. When our presence transforms the lives of others, then we know that it is the Good Shepherd who is present in us.
