The Good Shepherd

The fourth Sunday of Easter is designated Good Shepherd Sunday and the readings reflect this theme. This past Sunday at Mass I was reminded of a short book, a pamphlet really, that I was given many years ago by a friend entitled, “The Song of Our Syrian Guest” first published in 1904. The story involves the recounting of a visit paid to an American family by a Syrian friend who tells of his people’s long experience tending sheep in the Near East while reflecting on the 23rd Psalm. I discovered that this text is now available as a public domain electronic edition which I offer for your edification here:

(Note: If you click on the hyperlinked text “The Song of Our Syrian Guest” in the lower left-hand part of the book display frame you will be taken to a full screen readable version of the text.)
