This morning I led Bible Study for my smallest private prayer group: Our Lady of the Holy Rosary Group. We met at a private home. This morning we had 13 people. 6 of them are new Catholics whom I baptized @ Corpus Christi this year. It is very wonderful to get together and strengthen the faith of one another.
I gave Bible Study on St. John Ch. 10 & 11. Jesus is the Good Shepherd & Jesus is the Resurrection.
Jesus is the Good Shepherd:
Church is the sheepfold
The Faithful is the sheep
Jesus is the door to the sheepfold as well
The thieves are enemies from outside the Church
The hirelings are enemies from within the Church
The voice of the Good Shepherd is the voice of the Teaching Authority of the Church
The pasture is Doctrine & Sacraments
Jesus the Good Shepherd sacrificed Himself for His sheep. He knows & cares about each sheep
One Fold & One Shepherd: the Catholic Church is One is teaching, governance, & worship.
Jesus is the Resurrection & the Life:
Jesus manifested both His Divinity & humanity @ John 11
Confession is spiritual resurrection
