Left out

Here's a lovely thought from Pope Saint Gregory the Great that will not make it into the homily this weekend. I wanted it to but it just won't seem to fit. I offer it for your reflection:

It is written, “All flesh is hay” (Isaiah 40:6). What is hay if not grass? The good shepherd has laid down his life for his sheep in order to change his body and blood into a sacrament for us, and to satisfy the sheep he had redeemed with his own body as food.


  1. If that was left out, I'm wondering what the rest will be like!

  2. Let`s see... copy... paste... save.

    Thank you Father.
