He Shall Lead His Flock

"He is like a shepherd feeding his flock,

gathering lambs in his arms,

holding them against his breast

and leading to their rest the mother ewes"


– Isa 40:11, which is part of today's First Reading at Mass.

My sermon for today can be read here.


This is a statue of 'The Good Shepherd', c.300-350 from the early Christian section of the Vatican Museum. It is believed to be the earliest surviving statue of Christ.
