The Good Shepherd always cares for His flock

We invite you to take a few minutes and gaze upon the image below. Consider one or each reflective question.

Reflective questions:

  1. When have I heard the Good Shepherd call to me? How did I respond?
  2. Jesus says the Good Shepherd protects the sheep when danger looms whereas the hired hand runs away. When have I been like the hired hand? When have I been like the shepherd?
  3. Jesus says, "I have other sheep that do not belong to this fold. These also I must lead, and they will hear my voice, and there will be one flock, one shepherd." What does this mean to me?

for the Feast of Mary, Mother of God

by Sister Agnes Fischer

"Mary pondered all these things in her heart." (Luke 2:19)

... God had chosen her for His Mother.
... The Son of God had become human for love of us.
... The first to whom Jesus would manifest himself were the simple people of little value in the eyes of the world.

Mary, help us to ponder all this so that we begin this New Year with a new spirit:
... Remember that Jesus came to give us an example of how to live.
... Consider the poverty of Mary and her Son and disregard the desire to possess more than we need.
... We are brothers and sisters of Jesus Christ and of each other because of what occurred that first Christmas.
... Share the love and peace of this season all during the year with those whom the world values little.

Our Lady of Good Memories, help us to return to our work places, as the shepherds did to theirs, praising God with our lips and also by our daily lives.
