“My sheep hear my voice;
I know them, and they follow me.
I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish.
No one can take them out of my hand.”
Father Cooper asked on Good Shepherd Sunday how we hear Jesus in our own lives. Some of us hear him through the homilies and through prayer, and even the words of our families and friends.
Father suggested that if we want to hear Jesus more fully, we challenge ourselves to read scripture every day. An easy way to do this is to check out the daily readings in the lectionary, which can be found for free here.
How much closer can you be to Christ if you take up this practice for the rest of Easter?
