GOOD SHEPHERD SUNDAY
“For He hears the lamb’s innocent call,
And He hears the ewe’s tender reply.
He is watchful while they are in peace.
For they know when their Shepherd is nigh.”
- William Blake
"We adore You, Jesus,
eternal Shepherd of the human race.
You are present in the Eucharist
to dwell continually
in the midst of Your people.
You nourish us,
You guard us,
You guide us to the heavenly fold."
Ven. James Alberione
