I am the Good Shepherd
We believe that Jesus is the Good Shepherd when life is "bright and rosy", but when trials and sufferings, like this pandemic, come upon us, we feel that Jesus did not protect us. We feel abandoned and left on our own.
Today's Gospel reminds us that Jesus has power over all that cause our fear and anxiety. He assures us, "Do not be afraid, be still and know that I am God." When we believe in this truth, we will live in peace and confidence, knowing that we are under the care of the Good Shepherd, who gave His life for our sake.
Mama Mary, calm our restless hearts and allow it to receive the peace of Jesus. Amen,
