The Fourth Sunday of Easter, April 30, 2023
Often called Good Shepherd Sunday, Easter IV is laced with imagery and themes of sheep and shepherd and gate keeper. Jesus says, “I am the good shepherd.” John’s writer reveals that the shepherd knows his own sheep by name and that the sheep know the shepherd’s voice. The essence of Jesus’ teaching is that he came so that all may have life and have it abundantly. We’re all called to take that good news out into our world and boldly proclaim it. How will you do that?
