Weekly reflection

FR STEPHEN’S UPDATE

 

This weekend we celebrate Good Shepherd Sunday. On one level, this is simply because today’s Gospel is from John, where Jesus describes himself as the Good Shepherd. However, because of this inspiration for us both to be guided by Jesus, and to lead others in his path, it is traditionally a day when we pray for vocations to the priesthood, diaconate and religious life.

 

It is therefore a good day to remember and pray for our seminarians. Eddie, whom some of you will know from Dorking and Guildford, and Gustavo are already Deacons, and Bishop Richard will ordain them to the priesthood for our Diocese this summer. Scott and Gary, whom some may know from Father Ruslan’s parish, will be ordained Deacon, in preparation for priesthood. I was at Seminary at Wonersh with all four, and I look forward to seeing them ordained. Similarly, Barnabas is studying in Rome for our Diocese. Let’s pray for all of them, and all considering their call.

 

Let’s also pray for those in formation for the Permanent Diaconate. Also, let’s pray for those discerning a call, both women and men, to religious life, in our communities, monasteries and convents. Don’t forget that God calls priests, deacons and religious all the time. If you think that might be you, have a chat with Canon Bill or myself.

 

Let’s also pray for all of us. We all have our calling from God. Many are called to do superb work in our hospitals and schools, for example. To be a nurse, doctor or teacher is also a wonderful vocation from God. To bring up a family- the “first school of the Church”- is a vital calling. Whenever we show God’s love, we are following our calling, whatever it might be.

 

God Bless,

Fr Stephen
