From the Pastor… Fr. Kloton

I often wonder about the other “99 sheep” that stayed behind and were not lost. Were they saying to themselves, “Where the heck did that lost sheep go? Why did the Shepherd leave us behind? We didn’t do anything wrong. That lost sheep is always getting the attention of the Shepherd! This is too much!”

On the other hand, the 99 sheep that stayed behind were the “good” sheep. They knew that the Shepherd had to go and find the lost one. Instead of criticizing the Shepherd for leaving them behind, they were cheering Him on: “You go, Good Shepherd! Find that lost sheep! We need it back in the flock!”

Your choice: criticize the Shepherd or support the Shepherd!
