Good Shepherd Sunday

The words of today’s gospel:  “I am the Good Shepherd” have a significant meaning for those of us “sheep” who look for protection and guidance from their Shepherd.  There is also a reference to the last three chapters of the Book of Isaiah – prophecies relating specifically to the coming of Christ which curiously were deleted from a version of the Old Testament.  One can only wonder why this was done.  In any case, we should all remember the words of Jesus: “I know mine and mine know me.  As the Father knoweth me, and I know the Father: and I lay down my life for my sheep.  And other sheep I have, that are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice, and there shall be one fold and one shepherd.”
