(Our Lady of Fatima)
Jesus said again, “Amen, amen, I say to you, I am the gate for the sheep. All who came before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them. I am the gate. Whoever enters through me will be saved, and will come in and go out and find pasture. A thief comes only to steal and slaughter and destroy; I came so that they might have life and have it more abundantly.” Jn_10:1-10
So, who’s the thief and robber who has captured your heart, beloved? There ARE many of them, TV, alcohol, other addictions, cars, sports, and on and on. Yes, we need some of the material objects in life to comfortably survive. But we are not called to allow them to lead us, to own us. Only Jesus has the key to the gate to eternal life. He IS our Good Shepherd. And He brings us that life through our free will choice of Him!
