(Fourth Sunday of Easter, A)
Jesus said, “Amen, amen, I say to you, I am the gate for the sheep.” . . .
“Whoever enters through me will be saved,” . . .
“I came so that they might have life and have it more abundantly.” Jn 10:1-10
Jesus is the GOOD Shepherd.
He loves us. He cares for us. He feeds us. He saves us.
If you’re a parent – you know the feeling, because that’s how we “shepherd” our children. And we know how they so struggle to escape from us, to be independent. But come the least bit of trouble and they’re back in a flash. Jesus doesn’t want us just to come back when we’re in trouble. He wants us all the time, beloved. When we follow Him, all the time, we’ll discover a much more abundant life – in every way.
It’s the Life of God in us.
It’s the life of Love!
P.S. A very happy and blessed Mother’s Day to all moms!
