Monday of the Fourth Week of Easter 2020: Jn 10: 11-18, Homily and Art


The Good Shepherd: Painting by: Ronald Raab, CSC 2017


Gospel  JN 10:11-18

Jesus said:
“I am the good shepherd.
A good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.
A hired man, who is not a shepherd
and whose sheep are not his own,
sees a wolf coming and leaves the sheep and runs away,
and the wolf catches and scatters them.
This is because he works for pay and has no concern for the sheep.
I am the good shepherd,
and I know mine and mine know me,
just as the Father knows me and I know the Father;
and I will lay down my life for the sheep.
I have other sheep that do not belong to this fold.
These also I must lead, and they will hear my voice,
and there will be one flock, one shepherd.
This is why the Father loves me,
because I lay down my life in order to take it up again.
No one takes it from me, but I lay it down on my own.
I have power to lay it down, and power to take it up again.
This command I have received from my Father.”

  1. I enjoy the images you paint of the Good Shepherd. I need to know that the Shepherd is their to pick me up when I am in need. The Shepherd comes in many ways to me. When I see people in need I hope that I have been the Shepherd for them or that He will come to them in they way they need Him. Thank You Father Ron for being our Shepherd.
