SCATTERED SHEEP

This homily is based on Mark 6:30-34.

Sometimes I feel like a scattered flock of sheep. Blame it on the workload, on endless deadlines and numerous responsibilities, on a lifestyle that does not create enough room for prayer and meditation, perhaps even on social media.

TO BE SHEPHERDED

This homily is based on Mark 6:30-34.

In today’s Gospel reading, the sight of the crowd summoned the¬†shepherd in the Lord. What did it, we are told, was that they were like a shepherd-less flock of sheep. Nothing, after all, moves the heart of the Lord as much as his desire to gather his scattered flock.
