The Shepherd and the Sheep

Dear Parishioners,

Three weeks have passed since Easter Sunday. As we move along through the Easter season, today is the fourth Sunday of Easter.

Thus is a beautiful season where we celebrate that Jesus has risen, as he said he would. Jesus is present to us and he calls us to follow him. In today's gospel, Jesus says, "My sheep hear my voice; I know them and they follow me.

We are all Jesus' sheep. As we respond to how the Lord calls us, we're being obedient sheep. Jesus says about his sheep, "I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish."

As we celebrate the risen Christ, let's stay open to recognizing him in our life. He calls each of us to him in many different ways. As we listen to the Lord and respond to his call, we prepare ourselves for the gift of eternal life.

Sincerely in Christ,

Father Dominick
