The Good Shepherd

Jesus was tired, he wanted time alone with his friends, wanted rest and something to eat, but when he saw the people following, compassion filled him and he returned to his work of teaching and healing. To put the needs of those (human or animal!) in your charge before your own, that is the mark of a good shepherd.

If we are in any way shepherds ourselves, that is what is expected of us, and also what we are entitled to expect of those who shepherd us. Not an easy task.

Let us pray for the shepherds today.
