FOURTH SUNDAY OF EASTER Year A 2nd / 3rd May, 2020

Focus on the Readings… In the Gospel of John, we do not find parables in the traditional sense. They are not a literary device that John employs, but this text is as close an approximation to a parable as we have. The contrast he draws between the shepherd who enters the fold by the gate and the thieves and brigands who seek to enter another way is really about leadership.
