Symbols Provide Tangible Experiences
Church leaders are symbols of the Good Shepherd as are teachers and those in positions where there is service and commitment to a community or larger group. Parents and Grandparents can also be Good Shepherds. As symbols of the Good Shepherd, we make Christ’s presence and love for us visible in our daily interactions. The image of the Good Shepherd is a powerful reminder of the pastoral care we offer one another. This striking wall plaque inspires and challenges us to remember our personal responsibility to one another. This religious art piece honors and celebrates the individual who works as a Good Shepherd. It is an especially meaningful gift for a priest or minister.
What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them has gone astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine on the mountains and go in search of the one that went astray? And if he finds it, truly, I say to you, he rejoices over it more than over the ninety-nine that never went astray. So it is not the will of my Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish. (Matthew 18:12-14)
Born as a son,
led forth as a lamb,
sacrificed as a sheep,
buried as a man,
He rose from the dead as a God,
for He was by nature God and Man.
He is all things: He judges, and so He is Law;
He teaches, and so He is Word;
He saves, and so He is Grace;
He begets, and so He is Father,
He is begotten, and so He is Son;
He suffers, and so He is Sacrifice;
He is buried, and so He is Man;
He rises again, and so He is God.
This is Jesus Christ, to Whom belongs Glory for all ages.
—St Melito of Sardis
