Litany of the Good Shepherd

(CNS file/Gregory A. Shemitz)

(John 10:16) I have other sheep that are not of this fold. These also I must lead. They will hear my voice. There will be. . .

One Flock, One Shepherd.

Leader: Let us pray for the return of friends, family, and others who have fallen away from our Catholic faith.

Vigilant Finder of lost sheep, R. . .

Leader: O Good Shepherd, at once the Guard and Lamb, Who knows well the sheep He leads, guide us, feed us, shear us,

and bid us come unto Thee,

delighting in Thy heavenly pasture,

and praising Thee forever and ever.

All: Amen.
