Sacred Heart of Jesus
In the liturgy of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the Lord's concern for the lost sheep is highlighted, in fact, the Good Shepherd has all his sheep at heart, he tries to bring back those that have been lost to the fold.
It provides for all their needs, healing their wounds and protecting them from wild animals.
He knows the name of each sheep and, when he leads them to graze, he calls them by name one by one.
It pays particular attention to the sheep that has lost its way and, to make it find it again, does everything it needs to be able to rejoice in finding it.
Each lost sheep is found to be defenseless, and this can cause it to fall into a ditch, or make it get stuck in the brambles.
Just then, in a dangerous situation, she has the opportunity to discover how precious her shepherd is, who, once found, brings her back to the sheepfold full of joy, carrying it on his shoulders without feeling any effort.
When a wolf approaches, the good shepherd does not run away, for his sheep he is ready to risk his life too.
And it is precisely in these dangerous situations that the heart of him who is a good shepherd is manifested.
