Good Shepherds

<div class="page" title="Page 1"> <div class="layoutArea"> <div class="column"> <p><span>It is possible that the metaphor of the good shepherd might be lost on our 21</span><span>st</span> <span>century imagination. Few of us have the experience of witnessing the work of a shepherd, or seeing the influence good shepherds have over their flock. Shepherds keep their flock safe, they give them direction, the make sure they have their needs met. Sheep faithfully follow their shepherd with unfailing trust.</span></p> </div> </div> </div>


We are the Witnesses

<div class="page" title="Page 1"> <div class="layoutArea"> <div class="column"> <p><span>In our gospel reading, Jesus speaks very clearly and frankly with the disciples. The parables and hidden teachings are over now, this is the Risen Christ, and the prophecies regarding the Messiah have come to life with him! They are our first hand witnesses of this. We have received the good news from them.</span></p> <p><span>And now we too are called to be witnesses to the Resurrection.&amp;#160;</span></p> </div> </div> </div>
