Stewardship of Prayer and Reflection

The Fourth Sunday of Easter always portrays Jesus as our Good Shepherd, and so prompts the community’s prayer for priestly vocations, shepherds after Jesus’ own heart. So we can’t miss that point, Jesus declares five times in eight lines, “I lay down my life for my sheep.” The relationship between shepherd and sheep, in Jesus’ teaching, is one of mutual and intimate love:  knowing and hearing denote the warmth of relationship rather than cold obligation. Thus the key to the Church’s renewal and the world’s evangelization is our recommitment to Jesus in the personal relationship of a disciple’s love.

El Cuarto domingo de Pascua siempre describe aJesús como nuestro Buen Pastor y por tanto induce a que la comunidad ore por las vocaciones sacerdotales, para que hayan pastores que imiten el corazón de Jesús. A fin de que no podamos
olvidarnos de ese punto, Jesús declara cinco veces en ocho líneas: “Yo doy la vida por mis ovejas”. La relación entre el pastor y las ovejas es, según las enseñanzas de Jesús, una relación de amor mutuo e íntimo: conocer y escuchar denotan una cálida relación en vez de una fría obligación. La clave, por tanto, de la renovación de la Iglesia y de la evangelización del mundo es nuestro compromiso renovado con Jesús en una relación personal que pone de manifiesto el amor del discípulo.
