Sunday Sermon and Some More Rainy Days

18 Apr

“The shepherd drives the wolf from the sheep’s throat, for which the sheep thanks the shepherd as his liberator, while the wolf denounces him for the same act as the destroyer of liberty.”

~Abraham Lincoln


Today’s Gospel was short and to the point. Jesus is our shepherd. If we follow Him, we are given eternal life. My take on it… A shepherd guards and cares for his flock. God takes care of us, but we also need to follow in His footsteps, and help care for His flock, our children, our families, our neighbor’s. 


Gospel JN 10:27-30
Jesus said:

“My sheep hear my voice;

I know them, and they follow me.

I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish.

No one can take them out of my hand.

My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all,

and no one can take them out of the Father’s hand.

The Father and I are one.”


Another cloudy day, and pretty much rained all day. It was pouring this morning, but I put my hood up and enjoyed my greeting before Mass. My friend Mary and her husband were more welcoming, as they went out with big umbrellas and guided people in. They were soaked by the time the service started. 

That’s Mary by the white car in the red coat, and her husband Pat with the black and white umbrella escorting a lady to the door. I just held the door open, mostly under cover, but still managed to get pretty soggy.

After Mass, I stopped at McDonalds for iced tea and to watch the rain. Too gloomy to go home and just sit. No walk for me today. 

Looks like more rainy days ahead. Oh no!
