About Today Readings

Week IV Psalter. 16th Sunday in Ordinary Time.

Jeremiah 23:1-6. Psalm 22(23). Ephesians 2:13-18. Mark 6:30-34.

The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want—Psalm 22(23).

‘He will be called “The-Lord-is-our-Saving-Justice”.’

‘Shepherds’, says Jeremiah, ‘you have allowed God’s flock to be destroyed and scattered.’ But Jesus is a different sort of shepherd. He does not allow the flock to be destroyed.

Rather, Jesus teaches people how to live. He gives us a deeper freedom, while also paving a way for us to follow. He provides hope to all who come to him.

Lord, show us how to give our lives, as you gave yours, so that all men and woman may come in one Spirit to find our common Father.

Jesus, be our good shepherd.
