GoodShepherdOur hearts are broken as we move through the shock and numbness of the bombings at the Boston Marathon on Monday, April 15, Patriot’s Day. Many among us are trying to make sense of the unsettling events and are in need of solace and looking for consolation, fellowship, and a place to lay down our sorrow. In Fr. James La Macchia’s homily the following Sunday, April 21, aptly named, “Good Shepherd Sunday” in the Liturgical Calendar, his focus was not on why there is evil in the world or why innocent people suffer. Rather, his homily reminded us that Jesus Christ is the Good Shepherd and He continually calls and invites His “lost sheep” -- all of humanity -- to be found by Him and remain in the fold of His redeeming grace. With Jesus Christ, our Good Shepherd always with us, we need fear no evil.

"O save your people, and bless your heritage, be their shepherd, and carry them forever." Psalm 28:9

As we begin a new week and people return to their routines after the events of last week in Boston, we invite you to join us in prayer and contemplation around these events. This is also a time for quiet and deep listening to what co-workers, family, and friends are thinking and feeling. There may be people who want to pray, but cannot yet find the words. The "Prayers of the People" may be a place to begin. Click here for a link to these prayers. For a printed copy of the homily, click here. For an audio version of the homily, click here.

In the meanwhile, stay close to Christ in prayer this week as you process the meaning of recent events. Don't be afraid to bring your doubts and confusion and all of your emotions to God in prayer: God is large enough to handle them as you listen for our Lord's word of consolation and meaning. God is good--all of the time.
