4th Sunday of Easter


The Good Shepherd by Julia Stankova

This Sunday we are reminded in the 2nd reading, that
we are the children of God.  In John's Gospel we hear
about the role of the Good Shepherd, as distinct from 
the hired man.  Christ explains his selfless and eternally
caring nature as the Good Shepherd.

The painting describes a warmth and gentleness in the
portrayal of the Good Shepherd, with feet planted firmly
on the earth.  This shepherd is with us now.

Notice the IC  XC either side of the head of Christ.  
These Greek letters represent the words Jesus Christ 
and are usually seen on icons.
