Readings for today’s Mass
But let's not forget about the other ninety nine sheep who held the flock together; those faithful followers who did not wander off to other teasings. The vast majority
of the flock, Jesus trusted enough to leave on their own while he looked for the lost. The shepherd had tended the flock well.
For me, this is good food for reflection in this time when so many in the flock suffer because of the small percentage of shepherds who have lost their way. By far, the largest percentage of the flock have remained faithful followers of the Good Shepherd.
With Boston, Pennsylvania, Maine, Buffalo, Sioux Falls, it's been rough times for the flock. i am good with letting the Good Shepherd go off in search of those who have lost their way. For me, i will stand together with the faithful. While the Good Shepherd is not always obviously present, we know the flock is never left alone. During such times of turmoil, let the rest of the flock reflect the good stewardship of the Good Shepherd. He continues to lead us well. If we are always attentive to the shepherds call, there will be little danger of us wandering astray, of becoming one of the lost.
