Today is Good Shepherd Sunday

Good Shepherd Sunday is the Second Sunday of Easter in the Traditional Catholic liturgical calendar (the Sunday after "Low Week," the week beginning with Quasimodo or "Low" Sunday).

 The name derives from the gospel readings on this day which are taken from the 10th chapter of John. In this reading Christ is described as the Good Shepherd who, by dying on the Cross, lays down his life for his sheep.A major new Tridentine Mass site originated in metro Detroit on 
this day!: The Oakland County Latin Mass Association began its long-anticipated weekly Sunday Mass at 9:45 AM at the Chapel of the Academy of the Sacred Heart in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. Archbishop Vigneron Has appointed Rev. Msgr. Ronald Browne as chaplain.
