Gospel Sentence
“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.” (John 10:11)

Reading
“I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep. And I have other sheep that are not of this fold. I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice. So there will be one flock, one shepherd.” (John 10:14–16)

Meditation
Jesus is the one voice of Truth and Love. His is a voice so intimately and so deeply connected to His Father, and to His sheep. Jesus knows us in and out. Our lives are like the open pages of a book lying in the sunlight. Nothing is hidden from Him, and His love never changes. His greatest desire is that all people come to know His voice as intimately as we do.

Silence

Prayer of the Week (from Sunday)
Almighty God, merciful Father, since You have wakened from death the Shepherd of Your sheep, grant us Your Holy Spirit that when we hear the voice of our Shepherd we may know Him who calls us each by name and follow where He leads; through the same Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
