I myself will pasture my sheep

“Thus says the Lord GOD: I myself will look after and 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.” (Ez 34: 11-12.15-16)

Our Lord Jesus Christ, the King of the Universe, is my Shepherd—He Himself. He gives us rest, and when we are lost, He seeks us out; when we stray, He brings us back; when we are injured, He binds us up; when we are sick, He heals us, and He shepherds us rightly. This is the real meaning of being the King of the Universe. We are His Universe; being with us and for us is His Kingdom, and when we have a special need, all His attention is focused on us.

“The Lord sits as King for ever. The Lord will bless his people with peace.” (Communion Antiphon)
