Good Shepherd: nourishes, guards, guides..

4th Sunday of Easter

“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

"I like to think, then, of Saint Joseph, the protector of Jesus 
and of the Church, as the protector of vocations. ... 
Joseph is the "righteous man" (Mt 1:19) who daily perseveres 
in quietly serving God and his plans." Pope Francis

Pray TODAY - and EVERYDAY - for vocations

Father, hear the prayers of your people 
and bring to maturity the seeds you have sown
in the field of your Church.
