Good Shepherd Sunday

So many Gospel passages are connected to the world of nature and farming. Every year, on this Sunday, the Gospel is connected to the image of Jesus as shepherd, the Good Shepherd.While in English the word shepherd denotes the one who herds the sheep, in many languages the word (Pasterz, Pastore, Pasteur) denotes the one who feeds the sheep.

How may we allow the Good Shepherd to lead us, and the whole of God’s people, to fresh and sustainable pastures?
