Smell of the sheep

The shepherd-less flock is a constant Biblical theme. The need for shepherds is as great today as in the past. Parents and grandparents are called to shepherd their families and older children their younger siblings. All of us, in virtue of Christ’s word, are to be compassionate as the Father is compassionate. (Luke 6: 36). Early last year Pope Francis drove the lesson home when he said, “I dream of a church that is a mother and a shepherdess.” Who do I pastor?
