Central Passage
John 10:1-10
Subject
Good Shepherd Sunday
Description

Today is sometimes called “Good Shepherd Sunday.” Jesus is called the “gate” of the sheep in today’s gospel. The risen Christ opens the way to abundant life. He anoints our heads with oil and guides us beside the still waters of our baptism. Each Sunday he spreads a feast before us amid the world’s violence and war. We go forth to be signs of the resurrection and extend God’s tender care to all creation.

First Reading: Acts 2:42-47

Second Reading: 1 Peter 2:19-25

Psalm 23.  The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not be in want. (Ps. 23:1)

 

The Holy Gospel: John 10:1-10

Jesus uses an image familiar to the people of his day to make a point about spiritual leadership. Those who listen to Jesus are led to abundant life.
