The Good Shepherd

November 20, 2023

Faithful Shepherd, You are not a laborer
who runs away at the sight of danger,
but Your fidelity was tested and proven
on the wood of the Cross.
Accept the gift of our gratitude
for Your marvelous care.
Help us to hear and follow Your voice.

Watchful Shepherd, who protects the flock
and searches tirelessly for those
who wander from the fold,
retrieve the lost and bring them home.
Tend and heal their wounds.

Good Shepherd, who lays down His Life
for His sheep, nourish Your people
with the Bread of Life, that we may reflect
Your likeness and enjoy the spring of Living Water
that never ends.
