Shepherds who stay with their flocks.


Our readings today picture shepherds who stay with their flocks.

Let me mention a few such who did in Korea who died at the hands of the Reds, rather than desert their people.

 Father Timothy Rhee, the priest in Yang Yang before me, ministered to the people under Communist control for five years before they shot him.

Monsignor Brennan sent the young priests off to safety while staying behind, because "It was his job."

Father Tom Cusack stayed behind, saying he could not live with himself if he deserted his Catholics.
