Quote of the day, 25 April: St. Thérèse

“I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father. And I lay down my life for the sheep.”
(John 10:14-15)

About the Good Shepherd. The good shepherd gives his life for his sheep; when he has lost one, he goes in search of it and only comes back when he has found it.
