PODCAST | Christ, the Good Shepherd
[ View Transcript ]
In this podcast, Msgr. Fred Dolan reflects on the image of Christ as the Good Shepherd as described in the Gospel of John who gives us the image of the shepherd who lays down his life for his sheep. This image captures the selfless, sacrificial love Christ has for each one of us.
Further, Msgr. Dolan explains that we too are called to be good shepherds in our ordinary lives. We are called to have a constant concern for souls. He encourages us to pray about our role in the lives of others and stresses the importance of building community to create fruitful interactions with each other. In doing so, we become imitators of the love of Christ and good shepherds in our world today.
