Dear Friend in the Lord,

Good Shepherd” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims Himself as the ‘Good Shepherd’ who knows His sheep personally, and is willing to die for them.  His sheep too listens to His voice.  Ponder on, “As we ‘listen to Jesus’ voice, are we willing to make sacrifices, be generous and selfless in our service of His sheep, and those that do not yet know Him?”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 10:11-16

Jesus said: ‘I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd lays down his life for his sheep. The hired man, since he is not the shepherd and the sheep do not belong to him, abandons the sheep as soon as he sees a wolf coming, and runs away, and then the wolf attacks and scatters the sheep; he runs away because he is only a hired man and has no concern for the sheep.

‘I am the good shepherd; I know my own and my own know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for my sheep. And there are other sheep I have that are not of this fold, and I must lead these too. They too will listen to my voice, and there will be only one flock, one shepherd.’
