Saints in heaven

4th Sunday of Easter, cycle C
Gospel: John 10:27-30

Can we do a bit of visualizing?  We have been immersed with the things we see in this world that we tend to be blind with what is to come.  The danger is that we might not be part of the story. 

Read Apocalypse 7:9,14-17, what are the highlights of this story?
1. Myriads of people dressed in white robes and holding palms for the Lord: are we part of these people?
2. Their robes are washed with the blood of the Lamb: have we given Jesus' sacrifices any merit in our lives?  Have we made our sacrifices for love of Him.
3. They shall never be hungry because the shepherd will lead them to the springs of living water: are we willing to be lead by the Lord in our lives?  Are we willing to be instruments of life to others?

Give Jesus' world a thought in our lives.  It is a lot lot better than the world we have created for ourselves.  Here, the Lord's presence is supreme.  In His world, all people live.
