No one can take them out of my hand

“My sheep hear my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish. No one can take them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one can take them out of the Father’s hand. The Father and I are one.” (JN 10: 27-30)

What a significant continuation; yesterday we spoke about “giving [a] hand”; today, Our Lord promises us that “no one can take us out of His hand.” Not only His, but also from His Father’s hand. We are so loved and so protected. When we listen to Him, when we “hear His voice,” and when “we follow Him,” we will “never perish.”

“I am the good shepherd, says the Lord; I know my sheep, and mine know me.” (Gospel Acclamation)
