World Day of Prayer for Vocations - 4th Sunday of Easter

Every year, World Day of Prayer for Vocations falls on Good Shepherd Sunday. We see in Jesus, the Good Shepherd, the heart of every calling. He says, “A good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.” The mission of Jesus culminated in his self-sacrificing love. He gave himself so that we might live. This is the great mystery of love present in the Eucharist:

“This is my body, given up for you. This is my blood, poured out for you.” Everyone is called, and everyone has a vocation in the Church. 


Acts 13:14, 43-52   We are now turning to the gentiles

Ps 99: 1-3, 5 R.   We are his people the sheep of his flock

Rev 7: 9, 14-17   The Lamb who is at the throne will be their shepherd and will lead them to springs of living water.

Alleluia, alleluia! I am the good shepherd says the Lord; I know my sheep, and mine know me. Alleluia.

John 10:27-30   I give my sheep eternal life.
