Good Shepherd Sunday (((HOMILY)))
by Father Brian J. Soliven on Sunday May 3, 2020
During the month of May, the Church honors the Blessed Mother in an intensified way. In the example of her life, we see firsthand how to follow God's will. She never doubted, never gave into fear, nor abandoned her son when the storms came. She humbly listened and acted accordingly.
That is why during the month, I have added a new spiritual regiment to my daily prayer discipline -- FOUR rosaries. With God's grace, I hope to pray all four sets of mysteries: the Glorious, Joyful, Sorrowful, and Luminous each day. This simple rosary has proven to be a saint-making powerhouse. There is no better way to learn how to listen to the voice of the Good Shepherd, then by staying close to the heart of Mary whose sole purpose was to "Do whatever (Jesus) tells you." (John 2:5)
Will you join me? If not four, then one. Pick up your rosary beads and jump in the battle.
