Jesus with staff on a journeyThis depiction of Jesus as the Good Shepherd who is 'on the way' is a detail from the stained glass windows in the chapel. Jesus often used common images from agriculture to speak of God's way and wisdom; here he is depicted here looking to the road ahead, inviting us to join in and follow his path along with him. He carries a shepherd's staff, a symbol derived from, for example, the well-known 23rd Psalm: 'thy rod and thy staff they comfort me'. The Shepherd's staff is an image of both the protection and guidance of the Good Shepherd on the path of life as it is lived in faith, hope, and love. It is in that spirit that we seek to pay attention to the Holy Scriptures at St Matthias. As we do we trust that the Word of God spoken in Jesus Christ is living and active as the Good Shepherd who continues to both guide our steps and challenge us along the way.
