It's a Scotland Kind of Sunday

The priest who helps out with Mass at our church (he is president of a couple high schools but lives at our parish) said Mass today. It's Good Shepherd Sunday, so named because of the Gospel reading.

In the homily, he talked about the time several years ago when he chaperoned high school students on a trip to England/Scotland/Wales, and while in Scotland the kids got to go see a shepherd working with four herding dogs. His point was about how the dogs had to listen to the shepherd's commands so they knew what to do, and they had to pay attention and not get confused or distracted by other things. He compared that to the voice of Christ among all the other voices we hear today (other people, news, blogs, TV, radio, etc.). That was neat.

And right now, I'm listening to a Travis CD.

There ya go.
