4th Sunday - Good Shepherd Sunday - C (May 12, 2019)
“I Know Them”
“I know them, and they follow me.”
This verse from the Gospel for this Good Shepherd Sunday tells us much about the Christian vocation. The call to follow Jesus is a gift of love from the God who knows me.
Thus, following Jesus according to my unique vocation is my response to his love.
In so doing, I “may be an instrument of salvation to the ends of the earth” (First Reading).
Today, we thank God for our mothers – by living their vocations, they bring God’s love to us and the world.
On this Good Shepherd Sunday, please pray for priests and religious, and for more vocations to the priesthood and consecrated life.
