Fourth Sunday of Easter-April 17, 2016

Happy Sunday!

Today is Good Shepherd Sunday!

In the Gospel of John 10 we learn Jesus' voice is known by the sheep.

In Ireland a sheep farmer demonstrated how the sheep know his call and assisted by a herding dog keeps them constantly in their care.  He pointed showing the sheep born the prior evening and those about to deliver in the next two hours.  He showed the triplets separated from their mother's at birth.  The mother 's best feed two.  So, the triplet will be bottle fed by the farmer.  He showed how the dog constantly moves, to serve the farmer.  While the sheep are expecting before lambing season the dog has to 'slow down' as the sheep are heavy with young.  He even noted how the dog 'showed off' circling twice the herd when only once was required, but due to the expectant nature had extra time.  He came to the end instructing now the part people do not like- sheep are raised for slaughter.  Ouch.  All leads to the death of the adorable lambs.

So, our lives too will end , but to go home to our Heavenly Father.

Are we following our Good Shepherd's voice this Sunday?

I do appreciate your way of evangelization in this year of Faith. On the day of Lord, let us do those that foster our relation with him: mass, scripture reading

Studying in Jerusalem several years ago, I was very moved by the power the Sabbath has to reclaim and rejuvenate lives of believers, a time for complete rest.

Sunday is the most precious day of the week, time for reflection, Mass, family, and often religious studies, reflection, writing and ministry.
