Thoughts from Bishop Doyle
A Shepherd on our Darkest Hills
God knows the brokenness of heart and body and mind. Jesus knows our suffering and comes as our
shepherd. Guardian of our souls, the watcher in the night, he contends for us. We are being
shepherded by no one less than the great shepherd of the cross; through every kind of suffering
imaginable. Even now and in this present hour.
Do you wonder what we can do, and how we can do it,
We take up the work of shepherding together.
We shepherd together our families and our friends.
We shepherd our neighbors.
We shepherd our co-workers, school friends, and loved ones.
We shepherd, as Christ, in this time.
-Bishop C. Andrew Doyle
