I am cherished, and called by the Shepherd to serve the flock. But I can save no one.
Easter | Fourth Sunday of Easter (Year A)
Acts 2:42-47; Psalm 23; 1 Peter 2:19-25; John 10:1-10
Matthew invites us into a whole variety of experiences this Sunday. Verses 10 through 20, considered optional, center around a conflict about tradition and authority followed by a parable about the truth of the actions of the heart. This is followed by healings and feedings. The next chapter begins with more conflict.
