FAITH BOOK

4th SUNDAY OF EASTER (B) April 25, 2021

Acts 4: 8-12; Psalm 118; 1 John 3: 1-2; John 10: 11-18

by Jude Siciliano, OP

 

Mini reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run. “Faith Book” is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.

 

From today’s Gospel reading:

 

Jesus said, “I am the good shepherd.

A good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.”

 

Reflection:

 

There are a lot of voices out there that can only distract and scatter us. Perhaps we’ve paid too much attention to them at times in our lives. Through hard experience we have learned that they don’t have our best interests at heart and if we listen to them, we are scattered.  But the voice of the Shepherd, Jesus tells us, wants to gather us. His voice can help us keep our wits about us in an often-misguided world.

 

So, we ask ourselves: 

 

  • Can I name the “false shepherds” I have listened to?

  • How did they mislead me?

  • Where and how do I listen to the voice of the Good Shepherd?
