Good Shepherd Sunday/Vocations Sunday
Jesus said, ‘I am the good shepherd; I know my own and my own know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for my sheep. And there are other sheep I have that are not of this fold, and these I have to lead as well. They too will listen to my voice, and there will be only one flock and one shepherd.’ (John 10:12)
Today is often known as ‘Good Shepherd Sunday’ because of the theme of today’s gospel reading from John. It is also a Day of Prayer for Vocations to the priesthood and religious life. Let us pray fervently, with confidence and out aloud that men and women will respond to God’s call to become priests and religious. Lord, we pray for vocations to the Rosminian Order here in England. Amen!
