Sheep without Shepherd 25 Sep 2019
There is no shepherd with the sheep (in the picture). The sheep eat every green thing they find. They have no respect for young trees. They ate all the leaves of the young trees.
You can't blame a sheep for being without shepherd. Many Christians choose to live without a shepherd. Just as the sheep they may do as pleases themselves.
The (Catholic) Church exists to shepherd believers. The Holy Spirit is given to those who obey (Acts 5,32).
I need to choose to be guided. I need a trustworthy shepherd. I need other sheep around, because by times they understand the shepherd quicker than I do myself. I want to be guided and to be cared for. Actually I desire to be part of a shepherded community.
