• Good Shepherd Sunday, or The Feast of the Good Shepherd,
falls on the 4th Sunday of Easter.
Touch yearning hearts of all ages with this uplifting illustration of Jesus as the kind and tender Good Shepherd. A splendid sunset is the backdrop for this welcoming image of the Good Shepherd amidst his trusting, contented sheep. The Good Shepherd teaches us that if we stray too far from God, we might find extra hardships coming our way. Like sheep who learn to trust their shepherd and recognize his voice when he calls, we need to learn to rely on Our Lord, and listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit. Then our hearts will be opened to receive the grace we need! The Good Shepherd: Our Father Prayer Pillowcase is pretty to look at, but even better, it shares The Lord's Prayer to remind us to begin and end each day with a prayerful heart. It's also a wonderful resource to have on hand when you are helping youngsters learn to pray Our Father.
Here's a fun gift idea for little ones: as a special acknowledgement, personalize one for a child who has recently learned this important prayer by heart!
