Dear Friend in the Lord,
“Precious Sinners of God”: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims to His disciples of how God, the “Good Shepherd” would leave the ninety-nine sheep to search for the one lost sheep. Ponder on, “Every human person’s salvation is precious to God, and His Mercy is infinite and beyond all human love. Always, pray with deep gratitude to God.”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Tell me. Suppose a man has a hundred sheep and one of them strays; will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hillside and go in search of the stray?
‘In truth I tell you, if he finds it, it gives him more joy than do the ninety-nine that did not stray at all. Similarly, it is never the will of your Father in heaven that one of these little ones should be lost.’
