In Testimonium...

Good Shepherd Sunday.

For over a thousand years, today's Gospel reading from the tenth chapter of the Holy Gospel of St. John was heard on the Second Sunday after Easter. So I preached on it last week at the Noon Latin Mass in the Extraordinary Form. In the modern calendar this Fourth Sunday of Easter is also designated "World Day of Prayer for Vocations" and for good reason. Our Lord is the "Good Shepherd who lays down His life for the sheep" (John 10,11) and issued the three-fold commission to St. Peter to "feed my lambs... tend my sheep... feed my sheep" (John 21,15- 19), marching orders which included a description of how St. Peter would be led to his martyrdom.
