ETERNAL HIS MERCIFUL LOVE - Ps 99

In today’s Gospel Jesus says, “My sheep listen to my voice”.  That implies that we have kept Him company frequently enough to recognize it, listen to it and then follow Him.  By nature selfish - genuine love is not easy for us.  Unless we stay close to the Good Shepherd, we might easily follow the many voices of our own illusions and desires.

Mary of Magdala is interesting in this regard.  She, who followed Him right to the foot of the cross, recognized His Voice immediately despite His total disguise.  In joy she wanted to cling to Him, but He told her instead to “Go…..Tell!...

If we stay close to the Good Shepherd, “the Lamb upon the throne” of the second reading, we too will be filled with Joy and the Holy Spirit as were Paul and Barnabas.  This was despite the fact that they were unsuccessful in that part of their mission.  Indeed when Mary of Magdala did ‘go and tell’ they did not believe her either!  When we are close to the Good Shepherd neither success or failure will take away His Joy from us, nor the gift of the Holy Spirit.


SEEING YOUR LIFE THROUGH THE LENS OF THE GOSPEL - John 10:27-30

Jesus tells us that we can rely on his relationship  with us.  Think of the relationship you have in which you feel safe and secure because there is mutual understanding and the relationship has stood the test of time.

Jesus says that the disciple is one who listens.  What is your experience of listening to the word of God in the scriptures?  To what other voices have you listened and found guidance?

The faithful disciple is also one who follows the path of love that Jesus preached and practised.  Although it may be difficult at times, it is in following it we find life.  Where have you had the experience of listening, responding, loving and finding life?


VOCATIONS SUNDAY

Jesus is still calling Priests.  He needs you to say ‘yes’ to his call. Be a priest and find joy, bring people to God and let Jesus work through you. If you feel called to be a priest, open your heart to Jesus, follow the Lord and do not be afraid.

Priesthood is not an office of the past. Jesus needs priests today more than ever.
