Thought for the day: The image of the Good Shepherd is profoundly reassuring. We hear it today in John’s gospel and elsewhere in the Bible. It evokes a tremendous feeling of being cared for – the consolation of faith. Even in these difficult days, we need such reassurance. At the same time, the metaphor is used in a dissonant way: no regular shepherd, however caring, gives his life for his sheep! Cosy familiarity can dull the sense of shock: what is going on here? The gentle pastoral language suddenly gives way to sacrifice, as the shepherd becomes the lamb of God. Prayer: Jesus our shepherd, we know your care for us was costly as you laid down your life and took it up again. Help us to know again “the great events that gave us new life” in you, that we may hear you and follow you in all we do.
Fr K O’Mahony OSA.

Pope Francis – Tweet: The fullness of life and of joy is found by giving oneself for the Gospel and for our brothers and sisters, with openness, welcoming and goodness.

Priest on duty this Sunday:
Fr Eamonn Mulvihill: 066-7139145.

On this Vocations Sunday, a day of special prayer for Vocations to the work of service in the Church. Christ is the good shepherd who has given his life for his sheep. Salvation is to be found in no one else but him. He is the one shepherd of one flock. He has laid down his life that all might be saved. Pray for vocations to the priesthood and consecrated life, especially for our diocese. If you are considering such a vocation, speak to your local priest or email: info@vocations.ie

Prayer: On this World Day of Prayer for Vocations we pray for all those called to lay down their lives as priests, deacons, and in the consecrated life, that they will be faithful witnesses to the Good Shepherd in our midst.
We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
