Misericordias Domini ’12 – John 10:11-16; Psalm 23

There are three essential truths taught by today’s Gospel. First, Christ laid down his life for the sheep. Two, Christ remains with His sheep and continues to abide for them with His voice, His flesh and blood, and His Spirit. Third, Christ is working diligently to gather all His sheep into one flock under one shepherd. All three are confessed by the Psalmist and are a wonderful source of comfort. Today is Good Shepherd Sunday.
