May 7th 2017 – Easter 4A

(John 10:1-10)
Prophets railed against
Israel’s shepherds caring
only for themselves

Jesus, good shepherd,
offered what others could not;
life in its fullness.

Today, false shepherds
still violate and destroy
while proclaiming God.

The way of Jesus:
love God, and love your neighbour
as you love yourself.
