“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – 1 Peter 2:25




Once you were like sheep who wandered away.

But now you have turned to your Shepherd, the Guardian of your souls.


– 1 Peter 2:25 (NLT)







Here St. Peter applies to Christ the words the prophet Ezekiel places on the lips of God:

"I will seek out My sheep and I will rescue them from all places where they have been scattered" (Ezek 34:12).


Our Lord founded the Church as a sheepfold

"whose sheep, although watched over by human shepherds,

are nevertheless at all times led and brought to pasture by Christ Himself,

the Good Shepherd and prince of shepherds,

who gave His life for His sheep.” (Vatican II, "Lumen Gentium" (“Light of the World”))

Jesus Christ makes Himself available

as my Shepherd and the Guardian of my soul.

It is now up to me

to accept His direction and guidance, His protection and care.






Lord Jesus, You chose to be my Shepherd, my Guardian.

Grant, O Lord, that I will always choose to follow You; to be protected by You.
