Sunday Scripture

           As Christians, we are called to listen to the voice of Christ and be faithful to his teachings. Today's Gospel includes an image used many times by Jesus to describe himself and to speak of his relationship with his disciples. At first glance, the image of the Good Shepherd might not be one with which we readily connect. It can, however, help us realize that every Christian is to listen to and follow the voice of Jesus, heard in our hearts.

           In our first reading, Paul and Barnabas face opposition and jealousy. They persevere and boldly proclaim the Gospel to all who will listen. In the second reading, we hear of a vision of heaven in which those who are faithful to Christ come to share in eternal life. The Gospel reminds us that we are called to listen to Christ, for He alone gives eternal life.
