Brothers and Sisters
We may sometimes wonder where we “belong” in a world that seems so wrought by division. In our Gospel, Jesus uses the ancient, but still powerful, image of the good shepherd who knows and protects his flock. Easter celebrates that we have been made one people by his death and resurrection. Baptism and Eucharist intensify our place in this body. Nothing could be more unifying than that! I pray that we continue our role as one of his flock and always look out for the lost sheep among us with compassion and love, just like our Lord!
