So Will I Tend My Sheep

 Michelangelo: Sistine Chapel, Ezekiel

'For thus says the Lord God: 
I myself will look after and tend My sheep.
As a shepherd tends his flock
when he finds himself among his scattered sheep,
so will I tend my sheep.'
Ezekiel 34:11-12

Lord God, we pray for Your shepherds gathering in the Sistine Chapel


  1. Amen, Nancy. I join my prayers with yours.

  2. And I join you as well, Nancy. Can't imagine what these Princes of the Church must be feeling right now.

    I can't even concentrate on anything! +

    1. Me neither! Thanks for helping me feel so not-alone in this. I watched them going in, praying, and the closing of the doors on EWTN... good to be able to be in prayer for each of these men. Now, after hearing their singing of "Veni Creator Spiritus," I am using it as a sung prayer throughout the day.

  3. I too watched them process in and it was very moving and I got choked up with the praying and singing with them beseeching the Holy Spirit! Come Holy Spirt Come;
    Come with Your Light, Your Wisdom, Your Understanding and Counsel, Come and
    Fill your Shepherds.....Veni Santi Spiritus
