Thus says Christ the King
I Myself will look after and tend my sheep.
As a shepherd tends his flock
when he finds himself among his scattered sheep,
so will I tend My sheep.
I will rescue them
from every place where they were scattered
when it was cloudy and dark.
I myself will pasture My sheep;
I myself will give them rest,
says the Lord GOD.
The lost I will seek out,
the strayed I will bring back,
the injured I will bind up,
the sick I will heal,
but the sleek and the strong I will destroy,
shepherding them rightly.
(from today's first reading - Ezekiel 34:11-12, 15-17)
