May 7: 4th Sunday of Easter

Today is the 4th Sunday of Easter. We hear a familiar story in the Gospel (John 10: 1-10). Jesus is the shepherd and we are the sheep who follow Him because we know His voice. We are reminded that if we spend time with Jesus, we will know His voice, or the way He speaks to us (through scripture, in prayer, through people etc.) When we don’t spend time with Him, we walk aimlessly through our day.

Today is also the World Day of Prayer for Vocations. Spend time today with Jesus and really try to listen to what He is calling you to do with your life.

Prayer for Vocations
O God, you sent your Son, Jesus, to bring eternal life to those who believe. I join him in praying for laborers for your harvest. May your Holy Spirit inspire men and women to continue his mission through your priesthood, diaconate, religious life and lay ministry. May this same Spirit make known your will for my life.
