When Jesus used the image of the shepherd, the people who listened to him would have immediately understood what He was talking about. 

To most of us sheep all look the same. But a shepherd, can distinguish one from another and knows each one of them. When a shepherd calls his sheep, they recognize the voice and respond. The flock knows, trusts and follow the shepherd. A shepherd leads, guides and protects the flock. A shepherd would never put the sheep in danger. 

No, we are not sheep; but the language and image of Jesus the Shepherd can help us to appreciate the relationship He offers to each of us today. 

We are known and loved personally and intimately by Jesus; we are not all the same to Him. The Prophet Isaiah (41:1) wrote these powerful and profound words; ‘I call you by your name, you are mine, do not be afraid. You are precious to me and I love you.’ These are the words that Jesus speaks to each of us every day of our lives. 

Jesus calls us by our name out of love; He invites us to follow Him freely; this invitation is entirely ours. We may take our time in answering this call. We may even try to ignore His call. Jesus will wait and will never stop calling us by name. 

Today we celebrate Good Shepherd Sunday. Bishop Mike always encourages us to pray for vocations. 

Father David Baker encourages listening for the voice of Jesus and has dedicated Diocesan Vocation websites... and as well as a listing of Religious Communities of Women and Religious Communities of Men within Buffalo along with contact information. 

Let us pray for our young people who are preparing for graduation and are beginning to think about what their future may hold for them. Perhaps some may be thinking about the priesthood, deaconate or religious life. Maybe a word of encouragement would be just what someone needs to answer God’s call. 

As we continue our Easter celebration, let us remember that God loves us. We are precious in God’s eyes. God continually calls us by our name each and every day.
