Last Sunday was Good Shepherd Sunday. In the gospel, Our Lord describes himself as the Good Shepherd who is willing to lay down his life for his sheep. This post was inspired by one of the hymns we sang at that Mass. The refrain goes something like this, “Shepherd me, O Lord beyond my wants, beyond my fears, from death into life.” Wow! Every time I sing this hymn, I think, how profound! What an awesome message!
