Called through the Word to the everlasting journey in the Spirit

from nothingness to union with the One who is the Beginning and the End

Wednesday of the Seventh Week of Easter:        Keep Watch over the Flock

Readings for Mass

First Reading: Acts 20:28-38
Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 68:29-30, 33-35, 35-36
Gospel: John 17:11-19


“Keep watch over yourselves and over all the flock, of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God that he obtained with the blood of his own Son
(NRSV, Acts 20:28).”

Let us pray.

Father, the life that you share with us, you challenge us through the Word to share with one another, not lording it over one another, but as servants one to other, ready to give of our very selves, as did Jesus.

Father, some have been set aside as elders, others as deacons and bishops, to shepherd the flock, but all are equally called to minister, opening the minds of our sisters and brothers to understand the one Word revealed to all, forgiving one another our sins, and healing our injuries and pains through love.

All this we are called to do, every one of us through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
