Jesus Christ Is the Gateway to Heaven
David was a shepherd who became a king.
Christ was a king who became a shepherd.
Jesus fulfilled the ancient prophecies
Of Jeremiah and Ezekiel.
The illustration of Jesus as the
Good Shepherd shows God’s love for each of us.
Like the Waltons at bedtime, He calls all
Of us: “Good night beloved; follow Me.”
Jesus speaks through the Church; let us listen
To the priests, the cardinals, and the pope.
If they say something that we do not like
Let’s not mope. Let us remember Saint George.
Saint George slayed dragons and rescued maidens.
Let’s be chivalrous and charitable.
