Good Shepherd
Prayer Meditation for May 12, 2019

Prayer Meditation:


Let us begin our time of prayer by placing ourselves in this scene in Jerusalem with Jesus teaching his disciples about following him as the good shepherd. Imagine that Jesus has just said that no one can take his flock out of his hand. How does his willingness to lay down his life for his sheep make him a trustworthy shepherd who will never lose his sheep? Just as Jesus laid down his life for his flock, you now recognize this call extends to you as well. Ask Jesus to show you how you can lay down your life for others, seeking to deepen Christian unity.




With the guidance of the  Holy Spirit, choose one or two ways you can sacrificially give of yourself for others this week

to deepen the unity of Christ’s flock, whether that be in your family, your workplace, your parish, or another community setting. When you do so, offer up your sacrifices
