Speak Lord: save us

Plaster sheep, near Konya, TurkeyThe Responsorial Psalm, tomorrow, the 4th Sunday of Easter, picks up the theme of God’s careful, shepherding care of his people.

We are his people, the sheep of his flock.

Cry out with joy to the Lord, all the earth.
Serve the Lord with gladness.
Come before him, singing for joy.

Know that he, the Lord, is God.
He made us, we belong to him,
we are his people, the sheep of his flock.

Indeed, how good is the Lord,
eternal his merciful love.
He is faithful from age to age.

Psalm 99:1-3,5

And today Pope Francis in his visit to the migrants/refugees at Lesbos models allows the Lord’s care to echo in his being and in his actions. And reminds of the responsibility we each of us share for that same commitment to the human family, God’s family, our family.

  • To whom do you reach out?
  • Why?
  • To whom do you not?
  • Why?
