Grant, O Lord, we beseech thee, that the course of this world may be so peaceably ordered by
thy governance, that thy Church may joyfully serve thee in all godly quietness; through Jesus
Christ our Lord who livest and reignest with thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one
God, world without end. Amen.
FIRST READING                                       Jeremiah 23:1–6
“Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture!” says the Lord.
Therefore thus says the Lord, the God of Israel, concerning the shepherds who care for my
people: “You have scattered my flock, and have driven them away, and you have not attended
to them. Behold, I will attend to you for your evil doings, says the Lord. Then I will gather the
remnant of my flock out of all the countries where I have driven them, and I will bring them
back to their fold, and they shall be fruitful and multiply. I will set shepherds over them who
will care for them, and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall any be missing,
says the Lord.
“Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will raise up for David a righteous
Branch, and He shall reign as king and deal wisely, and shall execute justice and
righteousness in the land. In his days Judah will be saved, and Israel will dwell securely. And
this is the name by which he will be called: ‘The Lord is our righteousness.’”

This is the word of the Lord
Thanks be to God
GRADUAL                 Psalm 23                   Chant—Ouseley
ANTIPHON:   Blessed is he that considereth the | poor and | needy : the Lord shall deliver
him | in the | time of | trouble
The Lord | is my | shepherd : therefore | can I | lack | nothing.
He will make me lie down in | green | pastures : and lead me be- | side | still | waters.
He will re- | fresh my | soul : and guide me in right pathways | for his | name’s | sake.
Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will | fear no | evil : for you
are with me, your rod and your | staff | com-fort | me.
You spread a table before me in the face of | those who| trouble me : you have anointed my head
with oil, and my | cup | shall be | full.
Surely your goodness and loving-kindness will follow me all the | days of · my | life
: and I shall dwell in the | house · of the | Lord for | ever.

EPISTLE                                         Ephesians 2:13–18
Now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near in the blood of
Christ. For He is our peace, who has made us both one, and has broken down the dividing
wall of hostility by abolishing in His flesh the law of commandments and ordinances, that
He might create in Himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace, and might
reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby bringing the hostility to an
end. And He came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were
near; for through Him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father.
This is the word of the Lord
Thanks be to God

HYMN           O Holy Spirit, Lord of Grace                  419
Ponder my words, O Lord, consider my meditation. O harken thou unto the voice of my calling,
my King and my God: for unto thee will I make my prayer.

  GOSPEL                                            Mark 6:30–34
The apostles returned to Jesus, and told Him all that they had done and taught. And He said to
them, “Come away by yourselves to a lonely place, and rest a while.” For many were coming and
going, and they had no leisure even to eat. And they went away in the boat to a lonely place by
themselves. Now many saw them going, and knew them, and they ran there on foot from all the
towns, and got there ahead of them. As He went ashore He saw a great throng, and He had
compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd; and He began to teach them
many things.

This is the Gospel of the Lord
Praise be to thee, O Christ

Dear Parishioners,
What does the image of a shepherd tell us about God? Being a shepherd was one of the oldest occu-
pations in Israel, even before farming, since the Israelites had travelled from place to place, living in
tents, and driving their flocks from one pasture to another. Certainly looking after sheep was no easy
task for it required a great deal of skill, organisation and courage. Herds were often quite large, hun-
dreds or even thousands of sheep and the flocks spent a good part of the year out in the open coun-
try. Watching over them as shepherd required a lot of attention and care.

Sheep who strayed from the flock had to be tracked down and brought back by the shepherd. Jackals,
wolves, and even bears were common in first century Palestine and preyed on sheep. Shepherds of-
ten had to do battle with these wild, unpredictable and dangerous beasts. Shepherds had to put their
life on the line in defending their sheep, taking it in turn to watch the sheep at night and ward off any
attackers. The sheep and their shepherds spent much time together. Their life was so intimately
bound together that an individual sheep, even when mixed with other flocks, could recognize the
voice of their own shepherd and would come immediately when called by name.

The Old Testament often spoke of God as shepherd of his people, Israel. The Lord is my shepherd, I
shall not want (Psalm 23:1). We are his people, and the sheep of his pasture (Psalm 100:3). The
Messiah is also pictured as the shepherd of God's people: He will feed his flock like a shepherd, he
will gather the lambs in his arms (Isaiah 40:11). Jesus told his disciples that he was the Good Shep-
herd who was willing to lay down his life for his sheep (Matthew 18:12, Luke 15:4, John 10). When he
saw the multitude of people in need of protection and care, he was moved to respond with compas-
sion. His love was a love for each and every person who came to him in need. In I Peter 2:25 Jesus is
called Shepherd and Guardian of our souls.

Do you know the peace of a life freely submitted to Jesus, the Good Shepherd? In the person of the
Lord Jesus we see the unceasing vigilance, patience and caring of God's love. In our battle against sin
the world and the devil, Jesus is ever ready to give us help, strength, and refuge. Jesus the Great
Shepherd of the sheep asks you to trust in his grace and help at all times.

Yours in Christ, Fr Robert
