The good shepherd

The first image of the Good Shepherd in our mind is that of the Master who holds a lamb in his arms or on the shoulders. It is true: Jesus is the good shepherd who goes out of his way to search for the lost sheep, an image from the Gospel of Luke (15:4-8).

Hesus ang Mabuting pastol

Nakikinig sa akin ang aking mga tupa; nakikilala ko sila, at sumusunod sila sa akin. Binibigyan ko sila ng buhay na walang hanggang, at kailanma’y ‘di sila mapapahamak; hindi sila maaagaw sa akin ninuman.” (John 10: 27-28).
 
Si Hesus ay ang mabuting Pastol dahil nakikilala niya tayo. Bawat isa sa atin ay mahalaga sa mata ng Diyos. Alam ng Diyos ang ating simula at katapusan, alam ng Diyos ang nasa puso at isipan natin. Walang bagay na maitatago sa Panginoon.

Fourth Sunday of Easter: Tawag para sa kabanalan!

Ang ikaapat na linggong muling pagkabuhay ay linggo rin sa panalangin para sa bokasyon. Lahat tayo ay tinawag ng Diyos para sumunod sa kanya, at para magkaroon ng buhay na walang hanggan. Si Hesus lamang ang nagbibigay ng buhay na walang hanggan. Siya ang ating Mabuting Pastol. Sabi sa ating ebanghelyo, “Ako ang mabuting pastol. Iniaalay ng mabuting pastol ang kanyang buhay para sa mga tupa.” (John 10:11). Iniaalay ni Hesus ang kanyang buhay sa krus para sa ating kaligtasan.

Fourth Sunday of Easter: The shepherd

In the Old Testament, God is often portrayed as a shepherd who guides, protects, and nourishes his people (Psalms 80:2; 23); “he gathers the lambs in his arms, and gently leading those that are with young” (Isaiah 40:11). He takes care of Israel that has been brought to ruin by unworthy kings and promises: “I will gather the remnant of my sheep from every land to which I have driven them and I will bring them back to the grasslands. They will be fruitful and increase in number.

Mabuting pastol

Mayroong isang larawan sa National Geographic na nagpapakita ng isang batang pastol na umiiyak. Ang kawan na kanyang inaalagaan ay nasagasaan ng isang sasakyan.  Karamihan dito ay namatay.  Bagamat hindi kalakihan ang kanyang kawan ay dito makikita na mahalaga ito sa kanya. Ang mga tupang ito ang kasakasama niya sa araw-araw. 

Bahagi na ito ng kanyang buhay. Sapat na sigurong patunay ang mga luhang dumaloy sa kanyang pisngi kung paano niya pinahahalagahan ang kawan.

The good shepherd

When we talk about Jesus the Good Shepherd, the first image that comes to mind is that of the Master who holds a lamb in his arms or on his shoulders. 

It is true: Jesus is the good shepherd who goes out of his way in  search of his lost sheep, but this is a reproduction of the parable found in the gospel of Luke (15:4-8).
