This week the readings come from Acts 13:14, 43-52; Psalm 100; Revelation 7:9, 14b-17; and John’s Gospel 10:27-30.
This week we hear about the Good Shepherd it is sort of a continuation of Paul and Jesus “Feed my sheep” from last week although it come from earlier in the Gospel. Sure the metaphor is rough today as not many of us know shepherd but they were rough around the edges and as Pope Francis has said they would smell of their sheep. Being like the Good Shepherd is a goal that we should all be willing to attain. We need to go out into the world and work with others for the betterment of the world. Priests and Bishops need to listen to the words of Pope Francis and take on the character of the people that they serve.
