The Great Shepherd of the sheep

February 7, 2015 8:00 am

“May the God of peace, who brought up from the dead the great shepherd of the sheep by the Blood of the eternal covenant, furnish you with all that is good, that you may do his will. May he carry out in you what is pleasing to him through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.” (Heb 13: 20-21)

Our Lord, the “Great Shepherd of the sheep,” helps “furnish [us] with all that is good,” helps us “to do His will” and carries “out in us what is pleasing to God.” Our role is to keep our eyes on Him, to follow Him, and to listen to His voice. He knows how to furnish us with good, how to do God’s will and how to bring glory to God.

“My sheep hear my voice, says the Lord; I know them, and they follow me.” (Gospel Acclamation)
