Machnamh / Reflection
O Jesus, send labourers into your fields,
which are awaiting holy apostles,
saintly priests, heroic missionaries
and dedicated sisters and brothers.
Enkindle in the hearts of men and women
the spark of vocation.
Grant that Christian families
may desire to give to your church
helpers in the work of tomorrow. Amen.
Smaoineamh / Just a Thought
Jesus is no hireling. The hireling doesn’t own the sheep, and runs away as soon as he sees a wolf approaching. Jesus is the Good shepherd. The sheep belong to him, and he is ready to die for them.
Jesus mad the most wonderful promises to those who belong to him. He said that none of them would ever be lost. No one would succeed in snatching from his care the sheep the Father has entrusted to him. The sheep that belong to him will be safe with him because the Father’s power is in him. (He and the Father are one.) And he will lead them to the pastures of eternal life.
