From the Pastor

Good Shepherd Sunday

My Dear St. Bernadette Family,

“I am the good shepherd” Jesus tells us today. This is “Good Shepherd Sunday.” Every year on the Fourth Sunday of Easter we encounter the good shepherd. This tells us a lot about Jesus, but it also tells us a lot about ourselves. Yes, we are His sheep, but more than that, we continue His work. We too are shepherds.

What does a shepherd do? Tend the flock, bind up the wounded, seek out the lost, protect, love and serve. The good shepherd looks for opportunities to do good and cares deeply about all the sheep. No random acts of kindness, rather a lifestyle of caring, nurturing and touching with life.

There are so many people who are struggling with life and others going through a rough time. The hand of a shepherd is one of the most inspiring sights. Someone who cares. Someone who is trying to help. Someone who sets aside their own agenda and perhaps well-being to be there for us. This is what Jesus encountered and it is what we meet every day as well.

He cares for me (enough to give his life for me) and through me shepherds His flock still today!

With love,

Fr. Tom
