The Good Shepherd.jpg

They were like sheep without a shepherd

'As he stepped ashore he saw a large crowd; and he took pity on them because they were like sheep without a shepherd, and he set himself to teach them at some length.'

Liturgical Colour: Green

Entrance Antiphon   Ps 53: 6, 8

See, I have God for my help.
The Lord sustains my soul.
I will sacrifice to you with willing heart,
and praise your name, O Lord, for it is good.

Opening Prayer

Show favour, O Lord, to your servants
and mercifully increase the gifts of your grace,
that, made fervent in hope, faith and charity,
they may be ever watchful in keeping your commands.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, for ever and ever.

Theme: Rely on Him in Silent Adoration

The Lord Himself took pity on us, gave us hope in Christ Jesus, and allowed us to become and be called heirs of the kingdom of God. He planted us in His Church for our sanctification and meeting with the Father of our Lord Jesus.
