My Dear Parishioners:
“Let hearts rejoice who search for the Lord.”
At first, the lost sheep in the Gospel (Luke 15:1-10) may have thought he was on an adventure, or, maybe he just noticed something shiny that attracted him. Suddenly, he looked around and realized he’d lost sight of the shepherd and the rest of the flock, and, it was getting dark. He was hungry and tired. Most of all, he was alone, something completely contrary to a sheep’s nature.
When the shepherd found him, the sheep felt relief and gratitude, but most powerfully he remembered that he belonged. He had a life, a home, following the shepherd with his companions. He couldn’t recall what had possessed him to wander. The knowledge that the sheep would wander again did nothing to diminish the shepherd’s joy.
God, never let me forget that my place is with You.
Until next time,
