CUARTO DOMINGO DE PASCUA
26 DE ABRIL DE 2015
Yo soy el buen Pastor, declara Jesús. Es el buen Pastor
que da su vida por nosotros porque nos ama. No nos
abandona, ni huye, cuando estamos en peligro, cuando
el enemigo quiere hacer estragos y dispersarnos. Está
siempre junto a nosotros para defendernos a costa de
su
propia
vida.
Jesús es el buen Pastor que conoce a sus ovejas en el
amor y éstas le conocen en el mismo amor, igual que el
Padre me conoce y yo conozco al Padre. Y en ese
misterio de mutuo conocimiento en el amor del
Espíritu Santo está el cocimiento que Cristo nos tiene y
el que nosotros le tenemos a Él. Si queremos conocer a
Jesucristo, hemos de perseverar en el amor
sobrenatural para experimentar el gozo del amor que
nos tiene y que nosotros tenemos a Él.
Jesús busca amorosamente a todos. Tengo, además,
otras ovejas que no son de este redil: también a esas
las tengo que traer; y escucharán mi voz y habrá un
solo rebaño, un solo Pastor. La redención se ordena a
todos los hombres, Jesús los busca a todos y la Iglesia
tiene como misión prioritaria trabajar para que todos
los hombres conozcan y amen a Jesucristo, para que
vivamos unidos en un solo rebaño bajo un mismo
Pastor.
