“for they were like sheep without a shepherd.”
The Lord was angry and promised to punish the shepherds who
misled and scattered the flock. The Lord God would gather the flock
and appoint new shepherds to care for it.
The disciples returned from work and went with Jesus to a quiet
place to rest. Crowds followed. Jesus took pity on them, “for they
were like sheep without a shepherd.”
Let us Pray
Show favor, O Lord, to your servants and mercifully increase the gifts of your grace, that, made fervent in hope, faith and charity, they may be ever watchful in keeping your commands Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
Pray for our Sick:
Sr. Marie Andre
