Good Shepherd Sunday
The Fourth Sunday of Easter, sometimes referred to as Good Shepherd Sunday, is different for us this year. I/we don't remember this day without Sr. Gaudentia celebrating her profession anniversary. The two have been one in the same.
The Good Shepherd is certainly an image of Christ that Sr. Gaudentia dearly loved. Even in her advanced years, she showed forth a beautiful aura of childlike trust in the Shepherd to whom she could turn whenever she was in need.
Perhaps that's one of the best legacies she leaves us. To have such trust and confidence in a loving Lord who cares for all our needs, that we can turn to Him as small children turn to their parents, and know that he will supply our needs.
