Fourth 'Good Shepherd' Sunday of Easter

Dear Friends,

            Today’s Gospel (John Chapter 10) presents Jesus as “the good shepherd who lays down his life for his sheep” is contrasted to the hired man who runs away as soon as trouble appears. In the countryside that Jesus belonged to, the sight of shepherds and sheep was common. Indeed, the Christmas story is often told in the context “that shepherds watched their flocks by night…and angels sang…” Now at the end of the same story, Jesus himself would remind his hearers that there are two kinds of shepherds, the ones who care for and protect the sheep like any good parent would guide, help, form and love their children and the shepherd that is selfish and could not put themselves out. I am reminded of the heroism of parents who would go to any lengths to ensure their children’s safety, even to forgetting about their own comfort and freedom. It is humbling to think that this analogy works in family life now as well as then. We need to remind ourselves of that when we hear the word Gaza and other troubled places at this time.

  • Thank you for your generous contribution of £1101.14 to the Ocean Stars appeal last week for the children of Sri Lanka that they support.

  • It was a great joy to meet up with Terri and Dave Page – they send their best wishes. Thanks Mary and Anne.

Finally: Teacher: “Now that you know how to measure length, can anyone tell me the name of something you can buy by the metre?”

Jimmy raised his hand: “Please Miss… gas.”


God bless you all,

Fr John
