Easter 3 Homily 2010


Rev. Mason T. Beecroft, 04/18/2010

In our service for Morning Prayer, we sing a canticle known as the Venite, which is from Psalm 140. In this song of the church, the Psalmist reminds us that we are the “people of His pasture and the sheep of His hand.” In Holy Baptism, we were made children of the Heavenly Father as the Holy Spirit created faith in our hearts and joined us to Jesus’ death and resurrection. As such, we belong to God through Christ by the Spirit. We are the people of His pasture and the sheep of His hand.” On this Sunday, traditionally known as Misericordias Domini, meaning the “mercies of the Lord,” we give thanks that the Risen Christ has made us His own in Holy Baptism. We praise our God for pouring out His mercy to us in Christ. We also are thankful that Christ is our Good Shepherd, and that are the people of His pasture and the sheep of His hand.”
