The Gospel (John 10: 10)

Jesus continued, “A thief is only there to steal and destroy. I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of”.

... On the way to Mass

I wonder what it feels like for the Good Shepherd to call you by name. 

I wonder what it feels like to be a sheep of the Good Shepherd.

On the way home from Mass ...

Why do you think the sheep recognise the Good Shepherd’s voice? Do you spend enough time with Jesus to recognise his voice?

The Prayer

Come into this place as you are: come as friend or stranger; come as seeker or teacher; come as old or young; come as lost or found; come as you are. You are the person God loves, and gives life as the Good Shepherd does: healing, holding, loving, feeding, tending, nurturing God. Come as you are to worship, and be folded in God’s green pastures. 


The Question of the Week


How are you a shepherd to those in your care?

What rules frustrate you the most? 

What might be the reasons behind those rules?

Primary Students

What will you do this week to show you are a Christian?

The Action

Jesus is the gate, the gatekeeper, and the shepherd. Our only task is to listen to the voice of the Beloved, and to follow where it leads. No harm can come to the one who lives by this simple rule. 

Where are you going? 

Who or what is leading you? 

What needs to change in your life? 

Turn this matter over to God in prayer, and spend some time in a quiet place listening for the Beloved voice to lead you.
