Good Shepherd Sunday homily

Monday, April 27, 2015

Yesterday was 'Good Shepherd' Sunday, the day when the Church reflects on the role of Jesus Christ as the Good Shepherd and asks us to pray for vocations. Here is the homily given on that theme by Fr Richard Ounsworth OP at the Priory of the Holy Spirit, Blackfriars, Oxford.


As well as praying for the vocation of all the Christian faithful, we warmly invite you to join us in praying for vocations to the Order of Preachers:

Blessed Jordan, worthy successor of St Dominic, in the early days of the Order, your example and zeal prompted many men and women to follow Christ in the white habit of Our Holy Father.

As patron of Dominican vocations, continue to stimulate talented and devoted men and women to consecrate their lives to God. Through your intercession, lead to the Order of Preachers generous and sacrificing persons, willing to give themselves fervently to the apostolate of Truth.

Help them to prepare themselves to be worthy of the grace of a Dominican vocation. Inspire their hearts to become learned of God, that with firm determination they might aspire to be 'champions of the Faith and true lights of the world'.

Amen.
