Stewardship of Prayer and Reflection

     Jesus literally “lays down” his life for his sheep. Through Jesus, we come in to be nurtured within the community and go out to bear witness in passionate conviction and compassionate service. For Jesus has come not only to guide and protect the sheep, but to make sure we flourish: “I came so that they might have life and have it more abundantly” (John 10:10). The Gospel notes, sadly, “The Pharisees did not realize what he was trying to tell them.” May we realize and respond.

     Jesús textualmente “entrega” su vida por sus ovejas. Es por medio de Jesús que nosotros venimos a nutrirnos dentro de la comunidad y después salimos a dar testimonio con una convicción apasionada y un servicio compasivo, pues Jesús ha venido no sólo a guiar y proteger a sus ovejas, sino también a asegurarse de que prosperemos y seamos fortalecidos: “Yo he venido para que tengan vida y la tengan en abundancia”. El Evangelio observa tristemente que los fariseos “no entendieron lo que les quería decir” Jesús. Esperemos que nosotros sí podamos entender y responder.
