Good Shepherd Sunday 2016

In today’s gospel John 10:27-30 Jesus identifies the distinguishing characteristics of the sheep who truly belong to him – they listen to his voice and they respond. With Jesus as Good Shepherd and guide a very distinctive bond continues to grow within the hearts of the disciples – no matter what is happening internally or externally. This bond of trust is reflected in our faith, in our prayer, and in our sacrifices for the good of the Body of Christ.
