You shall shepherd My People

2 Sam 5: 1-7

You shall shepherd my People Israel, a promise and a command of the Lord to David. To shepherd means to be with the sheep, being with them and being one among them, feeling and sharing in their joys and sorrows. If the shepherd is not with the sheep he tends not to understand them, for he knows not where and how they live. The challenge for every Christian is to become a shepherd, as Pope Francis says, to become shepherd who has the smell of the sheep.
