Fourth Sunday of Easter

“I am the good shepherd, I know mine and mine know me. We can take comfort in these words of Jesus from today’s gospel. Jesus knows every one of us, and cares for and about us, but what about the second part of that statement? Do we know him as well as he knows us? Are we committed to developing/nurturing our relationship with Jesus Knowing Jesus and recognizing his voice takes a discerning heart. Through our friendship with him, we realize that he companions us in all that we do. We have the promise of Christ’s presence as we go out to others and share the “Good News.” Take time this week in prayer to
listen to the voice of our Good Shepherd and ask for the grace to be responsive to His call.
