Welcome to St. Christopher Parish

Dear Family,

“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. In verdant pastures he gives me repose; beside restful waters he leads me; He refreshes my soul’. (Psalm 23:1-3a)

Our readings today refer to shepherds. In our First Reading from the Prophet Jeremiah, we hear God sending a message of woe to the leaders of the Temple of Jeremiah’s time for leading the people astray. God promises that He Himself will gather the people back to Himself and that He will ‘raise up a righteous shoot to David’. That promise was kept in Jesus, the Good Shepherd. Jesus came to bring salvation and to lead us into eternal life with the Trinity in heaven. However, Jesus will never force us. We need to choose to follow. As we hear in the Psalm today quoted above, He will lead us to pastures and restful waters. He will refresh us if we allow Him to. It does not say He will drag us there. He will gently guide us! Let us always be open to God’s call. It is only in God that we find true rest and peace. Let us pray that all who are called by God to be shepherds of His people will be true to the example laid out for us by Jesus.

Praised Be Jesus Christ…Now and Forever!!!
