Weekly reflections on Sacred Scripture
and comment on public issues
By Most Rev. Richard W. Smith, Archbishop of Edmonton
This picture shows one of the panels on the holy door at St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. I have always loved it, and it speaks beautifully of the Good Shepherd reaching out to save the lost. That's the reason for hope.
I pray that you are enjoying the summer, getting some rest and relaxation and renewing relationships with your loved ones. I also will be taking a bit a of a break, so my next blog post will be on August 29. God bless!
