Fourth Week of Easter

Like a shepherd whose sheep recognize and follow His voice, Jesus leads the faithful. Pharisees failed to understand. The Lord then described Himself as the sheepgate, because only through Him can a person enter into salvation. Ascending to heaven, Jesus left plenty for the Disciples to do and sent the Holy Spirit to work through them. Even people blessed with faith may find it hard to follow the advice of Saint Peter to place every worry in God’s hands. Jesus provides the way to progress from earthly dwellings to places prepared for us in heaven. Our Good Shepherd knows and cares about the way things go for us. In decision-making, do we always take the first step of asking God the way we should go?
