I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish. — John 10:28
This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad. Happy birthday to my daughter Hannah on this beautiful Mother’s Day! In today’s gospel, Jesus said, “My sheep hear my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish. No one can take them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one can take them out of the Father’s hand. The Father and I are one (V.27-30).
Today is Good Shepherd Sunday. What a beautiful image: Jesus as a loving shepherd who cares for us and leads us to good pasture and safety! Our Lord knows each of us by name and calls out to us in love. He has hand-picked us for His will on earth with a final destination into heavenly glory. Jesus promises to lead us to springs of life-giving water (Revelations 7:17). Throughout your life’s journey, Jesus will nourish you with his Body and Blood in the Eucharist and refresh you with the water of His life-giving Spirit.
May God bless all mother’s and your families abundantly as you continue to serve the body of Christ with great joy all for the glory of God!
