Faithful Shepherd, you are not a hireling who runs away at the sight of danger, but your fidelity was tested and proven on the wood of the Cross. Accept the gift of our gratitude for your marvelous care. Help us to hear and follow your voice.
Watchful Shepherd, who protects the flock and searches tirelessly for those who wander from the fold, retrieve the lost and bring them home. Tend and heal their wounds.
Good Shepherd, who lays down his life for his sheep, nourish your people with the Bread of Life, that we may reflect your likeness and enjoy the springs of Living Water that never ends. Amen.
