Monday of 4th Week of Easter A

The Good Shepherd

Last few weeks after Easter, Saint John taught us on the Sacraments of Baptism and Eucharist. One needs to be born again in water and Spirit to inherit the Kingdom of God. The Sacrament of the Most Holy Eucharist, the Lord Jesus invites us to receive him for the eternal life. This week, the Church invites us to examine who the Lord Jesus is if he’s not the Good Shepherd who laid down his life for his sheep, reported in today’s Gospel. Tomorrow, Saint John will help us to differentiate the difference between the Good and the bad Shepherds. On Wednesday, he will help us to understand that the Good Shepherd is the one who leads his people in the light and not in darkness. On Thursday, he will help us understand that the Good Shepherd is also a humble servant who comes to serve and not to be served. Finally, on Friday, Saint John emphasizes that Jesus Christ is truly the Way, the Truth and the Life for us to follow. So, what does it mean to lay down his life for his sheep? What does it mean to be a good shepherd for you? How can you be a good shepherd for your loved one(s) or others?
