Weekly Homily for Sunday 25 April 2021

Greetings, 

Shepherds were near the bottom of the social pecking order. Jesus identifies with the lowest, willing to give his life to nurture those in his care. And this is more expansive than most of us might imagine.

25 April 2021 - The Good Shepherd - John 10 vs 11-18
