“A Holy Year to experience strongly within ourselves the joy of having been found by Jesus, the Good Shepherd Who has come in search of us because we were lost.”
There is a story in the Bible I believe where there are 100 sheep, one gets lost or wanders away and the Shepherd stops everything and searches for that one lost sheep, until it is found. Many of us traverse this world with our eyes wide shut. Lost in the darkness which envelopes our very being. Making us callous and hardened to the little things in life. We are so busy in the fast paced world we fail to realize the Rose the grew in the concrete; we fail to realize the beauty amidst the turmoil.
It is through God’s Amazing Grace that those of us who were caught up ‘IN the world’ have been found and given New Life. It is through God’s Amazing Grace that gives use ‘New Eyes’ that are OPENED to the NEW possibilities that only God has for us. It is through His Amazing Grace that He loves us so much, that He will take the time to come after just one person out of all the inhabitants of the earth, He is searching for YOU and I. How can God do this you ask? THROUGH you and I. You see once we have had that Encounter with the Lord, when we have received His Mercy and Forgiveness, when we have had a Sacramental Encounter with the Lord, then He uses us to GO OUT into the world and make a difference. We then become the Face of the Good Shepherd, who is searching for the lost sheep.
Let us take time during this Year of Mercy to realize the Rose that grew from the concrete, to seek out those whose eyes are wide shut and lost. Never forget it was His Grace that saved you and His Mercy that sustains you!
Blessed Be the Name of the Lord!
Keep on Keepin On!
