Run Time: 10:27. Gospel: Jn 10:1-10.

When we look then, dear friends, at the Good Shepherd, we see an image of Christ who is truly concerned for us. Not only in the past, not only here and now, but who desires our future wellbeing. The devotion and love which we show towards Christ in our modern way – through the Sacred Heart, through Divine Mercy, through the image of the crucifix – is indeed to be commended. Nevertheless, this approach to Christ does not represent His work in our daily lives in such a way as we see when we tap into the wisdom of those who have gone before us, who placed all their hope in Christ Who was raised from the dead for our salvation.
