DG BookGospel: John 10:1-10
Truly, I say to you, anyone who does not enter the sheepfold by the gate, but climbs in some other way, is a thief
and a robber. But the shepherd of the sheep enters by the gate. The keeper opens the gate to him and the sheep hear
his voice; he calls each of his sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes before

them, and the sheep follow him for they know his voice. A stranger they will not follow, but rather they will run away from him, because
they don’t recognize a stranger’s voice. Jesus used this comparison, but they did not understand what he was saying to them.
So Jesus said, “Truly, I say to you, I am the gate of the sheep. All who came were thieves and robbers, and the sheep did not hear them.
I am the gate. Whoever enters through me will be saved; he will go in and out freely and find food. The thief comes to steal and kill and
destroy, but I have come that they may have life, life in all its fullness.”

 

Reflection:

 

The post - Pentecostal transformation of Peter should
give us the greatest hope for the possibility of change
in ourselves! From such an impulsive, self-centered man
who dared to persuade Christ away from his way of the Cross
(cf. Mt. 16:22), Peter has now become totally transparent to
the guidance of the Holy Spirit. He sets aside his own prejudices
and hesitations and simply obeys God, with a disarming argument:
“Who am I to resist God?” Later, in the Jerusalem Council, Peter,
with other apostles and elders would write to the entire Church,
mentioning: “It has seemed good to the Holy Spirit and us…” (Acts
15:28). They mention the Spirit first and themselves, second. It
is the Spirit who comes first, we must be the following second.
It must always be so in the Church—the universal Church all
the way to the domestic church of our families as well.
