Dear Friend in the Lord,

Good Shepherd” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaimed to the scribes and Pharisees that the “Good Shepherd” is the Messiah who will seek out and forgive all sinners with Infinite Mercy, and rejoice when a sinner repents and returns to God.  Ponder on, “What is Jesus saying to you today about His Merciful and Forgiving Love?”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 15:1-7

The tax collectors and sinners, were all seeking the company of Jesus to hear what he had to say, and the Pharisees and scribes complained, ‘This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.’ So he this parable to them:

‘What man among you with a hundred sheep, losing one, would not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness and go after the missing one till he found it? And when he found it, would he not joyfully take it on his shoulders and then, when he got home, call together his friends and neighbours, “Rejoice with me”, he would say “I have found my sheep that was lost.” In the same way, I tell you, there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one repentant sinner than over ninety-nine virtuous men who have no need of repentance.’
