Easter WK 4A (National Day of Prayer for Vocations)

In the gospel for the 4th Week of Easter, Year A, we hear about shepherds. It is appropriate since the Latin word for “shepherd” is “Pastores,” we get the English word, “pastor” from it. This is what we call an ordained minister. So, the Church today prays for more workers in the vineyard, more pastors who will be like Jesus in their approach to their flock. Jesus calls all members of His flock to care for each other, but he calls some people to a life-long commitment to shepherding the flock. “If today you hear His voice, harden not your hearts.” If you think God is calling you to be a shepherd, contact your pastor and talk to Him. Pray about it; seek God’s guidance.
