I know mine...
Today is Earth Day! Let us care for our planet and be grateful!
Next Sunday is Good Shepherd Sunday and we hear again in John's Gospel: "I am the good shepherd. A good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep....I am the good shepherd, and I know mine and mine know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I will lay down my life for the sheep."
I love this Gospel and how wonderful to be known as the Father knows Jesus and even more marvelous to think that we know Jesus; we belong to Jesus and He cares for us as this mother duck is taking care of her offspring.
Have you not had moments when you have known that Jesus was carrying you tenderly home?
