Quid sum miser tunc dicturus? Quem patronum rogaturus? Cum vix iustus sit securus?

“He walks ahead of them”

Sometimes – especially in this world of economic turmoil, unemployment, and foreclosure – we are frightened.

Sometimes – especially in this world of conflicting ideas and authorities – we are not sure what to do.

But in this world and beyond this world, we have Christ – the Good Shepherd – as we hear in today’s Gospel (John 10:1-10):

He walks ahead of them,
and the sheep follow him,
because they recognize his voice.

May we not be afraid.

He walks ahead of us.

May we listen to the voice of Christ.

He calls to us.

May we follow Him.

He is our Lord, our Savior, and our Shepherd.
