“I am the good shepherd,
and I know mine and mine know me,
just as the Father knows me and I know the Father;
and I will lay down my life for the sheep.”
Become aware of the reality of what He has just said.
Respond to him as your heart dictates.
Heritage word—“We all, whether old or young, well or infirm, labor for the one end, the greater glory of God until, sooner or later, we shall hear the summons: ‘Well done, good and faithful servant, because you have been faithful over a few things, I will place you over many; enter into the joys of the Lord.”
(Mother Mary Antonie, 4th Superior General of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
