shepherds after my own heart

July 27, 2018 6:00 am

“Return, rebellious children, says the LORD, for I am your Master; I will take you, one from a city, two from a clan, and bring you to Zion. I will appoint over you shepherds after my own heart, who will shepherd you wisely and prudently.” (JER 3: 14-15)

We should remember priests in our prayers. They are very important in our lives—our confessors and our pastors, celebrants of the Holy Mass and preachers, men of prayer and service. I used to call them “men in black, protecting the world from all the scum of the universe,” like the movie title. We desperately need “shepherds after Our Lord’s own heart,” and all the time we need to ask Our Lord to appoint over us these shepherds.

“Blessed are they who have kept the word with a generous heart and yield a harvest through perseverance.” (Gospel Acclamation)
