This is Bishop Michael Burbidge of the Catholic Diocese of Arlington. One of the most well-known parables in Sacred Scripture is the story of The Good Shepherd who was willing to leave the entire flock to bring back the lone sheep that went astray. We may not realize it, or care to admit it, but at some point in life, every person wanders off and strays far from God’s will. At this very moment, you may feel you have wandered too far to return to the arms of the Good Shepherd. The reality is that Our Lord desires our return and waits for us to return with the promise to embrace us in his love and mercy. Therefore, we must always be grateful that Our Risen Lord is willing to search for us and bring us back, no matter how far away we stray.
