“My sheep hear my voice;
I know them, and they follow me.
I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish.
No one can take them out of my hand.
My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all,
and no one can take them out of the Father’s hand.
The Father and I are one.”
In the Gospel reading for this weekend, commonly known as Good Shepherd Sunday, Jesus says that his sheep hear his voice. In reflection we might as ourselves, how familiar are we with Jesus? How familiar are we with his voice? In what ways do we hear Jesus’ voice? In what ways do we not hear it? What in our lives needs to change so that we are more attentive to his voice?
