In the Gospel for the Fourth Sunday of Easter, Jesus compares himself to a sheep gate.  “I am the gate.  Whoever enters through me will be saved,  and will come in and go out and find pasture.  A thief comes only to steal and slaughter and destroy; I came so that they might have life and have it more abundantly” (John 10: 9-10).  Shepherds gather their sheep at night into a protected enclosure.  Shepherds lead them through the gate which the shepherds guard until dawn.   Jesus gathers the scattered and lost.  He shows us the way to a better life.  He is our way to a more loving relationship with God and others.  He is the source of our salvation.  How has Jesus helped you find your way to living for God?  For others?
