Are you savoring the graces of this Easter season? Do you follow the Risen Jesus with deep love and gratitude for all that has impacted our lives because of his life, death and resurrection? In today’s Gospel Jesus says, “My sheep hear my voice; I know them.” God knows our hearts. Let’s reflect on times when we may have tried to hide parts of our hearts from him. We might prayerfully ask: ‘How can I strive to know God as God knows me?’ Do I feel God’s protective care? Ignatian spirituality inspires us to recognize God’s presence in our lives. How can I nurture a sense of wonder and awe in God’s presence? With prayer and practice, our ears can hear and our eyes can see will lead us to a deeper relationship with our loving Lord. We turn to God in prayer; we listen with our hearts and follow the Shepherd.
