Prayer of the Day

Fourth Sunday of Easter – Vocations Sunday

April 17th, 2016
"Jesus said; 'My sheep hear my voice, I know them and they follow me. I give them eternal life.'" John 10 : 28
Good-Shepherd

Jesus’ mission is described as a shepherd,  good and beautiful at the same time.  The relationship of the shepherd with his sheep is expressed in six suggestive verbs:  Listen,  Learn,  Follow,  Give Eternal Life,  Not lose and Maintain.  They are like six steps that describe the story of the disciple – the listening;  adherence to the shepherd’s voice becomes discipleship in daily fidelity,  the ultimate goal is eternal life,  intimate and full communion with God,  that nothing and no one can separate us from.

Prayer

Help us O Lord to get closer to you so that we can hear your voice and follow you this day. Amen
