The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall lack.  He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me to tranquil streams.  – Ps 23:1-2

Reflection.  Even though you walk through the valley of darkness, do not fear any evil for the Lord is with you to comfort you.  Open yourself to the God of all consolation.

Prayer.  Jesus, You are the Good Shepherd.  Help me to remember that You are near.
