Sr. Gail’s Reflections
Quote for Summer 2013
“When we put His will, His way, before all else, we will find what
we have been created for. Being a disciple will be our greatest honor.
And then we will be empowered to truly love those God has given us.”
Sr. Anne Shields, S.G.L.
To Be Like Jesus, Servant Books
Following Jesus is all about discipleship. In this context, Jesus reaches out to
each of us as our Shepherd and reveals to us Who He is, the Obedient Son of the Father.
Jesus has gone ahead of us in obedience. He trusted the Father implicitly and explicitly
in everything He said and did. “I do the Father’s work.” “Father, remove this cup. Yet
not as I will, but as you will.” He lived a life of true discipleship and through His life lived
and surrendered, He won for each one of us the possibility of eternal life, a life of joy and
peace in the heavenly kingdom, a life that never ends.
Today He speaks to your heart. He says, “I know longer call you servants, but friends.
A servant does not know what his master is doing: but I have called you friends, for
all that I heard from my Father I have made known to you.” (Jn. 15:15) He invites you;
yes you, to be His disciple, to follow Him, the Lamb, wherever He goes. He says, “Do not
be afraid. I lead you on the path to life that is forever, life that is abundant and joy-filled.
In the dark valleys I will not abandon or forsake you. Rather I will lead you safely through them.
