Quote/s of the Day – 25 April – The Fourth Sunday of Easter, Good Shepherd/, Readings: First: Acts 4: 8-12, salm: Psalms 118: 1, 8-9, 21-23, 26, 28, 29 (22), Second: First John 3: 1-2, Gospel: John 10: 11-18

“The mark of Christ’s sheep
is their willingness to hear and obey,
just as disobedience
is the mark of those who are not His.
We take the word ‘hear’
to imply obedience
to what has been said.”

St Cyril of Alexandria (376-444)
Father and Doctor of the Incarnation

“Like Matthew, therefore,
follow this most devoted shepherd;
like Zacchaeus receive Him with hospitality;
like the sinful woman,
anoint Him with ointment
and wash His feet with your tears,
wipe them with your hair
and caress them with your kisses,
so that finally, with the woman
presented to Him for judgement,
you may deserve to hear the sentence of forgiveness:
“Has no one condemned you?
Neither will I condemn you.
Go, and sin no more” (Jn 8:10-11).”

St Bonaventure (1217-1274)
Seraphic Doctor
