Daily Reflection on the Mass Readings
Jesus said, “What do you think? If a shepherd has a hundred sheep, and one of them has gone astray, does he not leave the ninety–nine on the mountains and go in search of the one that went astray? And if he finds it, truly I tell you, he rejoices over it more than over the ninety–nine that never went astray. So it is not the will of your Father in heaven that one of these little ones should be lost.”
1. How do I see myself? A perfect person who is blameless? Or there are some soft spots in me that need to be healed by Jesus?
2. In today’s prayer, I ask the Lord that I, too, may give up all the good of the earth and to search for the “little ones”—those who are vulnerable and cannot cope with life’s demands.
