07-07-15 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

July 7, 2015
At the sight of the crowds, his (Jesus’) heart was moved with pity for them because they were troubled and abandoned, like sheep without a shepherd.  Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few; so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest.”   Mt 9:32-38

The shepherd gathers his sheep together, and together they are secure because they know that they are in the hands of a true leader, a protector, a defender of their rights, and their freedom, and their safety.  Jesus is that true leader, the Shepherd.

And yet, if they had not heard of Jesus they will still be just lost sheep.  So Jesus tells His disciples that they need more messengers to spread that message, to “harvest” the lost and make them found.  This is what His disciples will become.  And those who become found will, in turn, become the new messengers until the whole world knows.  So, there is no need to feel troubled or abandoned any more, beloved.  Jesus, our “good shepherd,” is here.  And His kingdom of love is all around us, if we just look!
