(Good Shepherd Sunday)
The Good Shepherd has risen, who laid down his life for his sheep
and willingly died for his flock, alleluia.
"I am the good shepherd, says the Lord; I know my sheep, and mine
Jesus is the good shepherd who knows the sheep. The Good Shepherd not only loves and protects the sheep but is willing to lay down
his life for the sheep.
Let us Pray
Almighty ever-living God, lead us to a share in the joys of heaven, so that the humble flock may reach where the brave Shepherd has gone before. Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, One God, for ever and ever. Amen
