Dear Friend in the Lord,

Sheep without A Shepherd” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaimed to the crowd, the Good News of Salvation, and cured all kinds of diseases.  Ponder on, “When we do not listen to and follow the voice of Jesus our Good Shepherd. . . we too can become ‘harassed and dejected.’  This is because only Jesus can give us the “deepest Peace, Joy and Happiness” in our lives.”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 9:35-37

Jesus made a tour through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and curing all kinds of disease and all kinds of illness.

And when he saw the crowds he felt sorry for them because they were harassed and dejected, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, ‘The harvest is rich but the labourers are few, so ask the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers to his harvest.’
