THE CALL OF THE GOOD SHEPHERD
The Twenty-third Psalm, today’s responsorial psalm, is arguably the best known of
all the psalms. The line that reads “Even though I walk in the dark valley / I fear no evil; for
you are at my side / with your rod and your staff / that give me courage” (Psalm 23:4) con-
nects this week’s scriptures to the wonderful story of the road to Emmaus, which we heard
last week. The Lord Jesus, our Good Shepherd, is constantly at our side. He calls us each by
name, beckoning us into a deeper relationship with him. That call, issued to each of us at the
moment of our baptism, carries with it the promise of the Good Shepherd: “I came so that
they might have life and have it more abundantly” (John 10:10). Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co., Inc.
TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION The fact that many monastic churches do not have a prominent tabernacle
shapes the patterns of liturgical prayer. Monastic communities often protect the ancient value of “receiving from the same
sacrifice,” meaning that the communicants are assured that what they eat and drink in the Holy Mysteries actually comes
from the same celebration. It surprises many to learn that the Church does not foresee, nor does it provide for, Communion
of the faithful from the reserved Sacrament. Litu
