▪️ “For you were like sheep going astray, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.”
I Peter 2:25
🛑 "Error has three causes—darkness, loneliness and ignorance.
The Gentile sheep were wandering among idols because of their foolish ignorance,
and they found themselves lost in the darkness of sin and in the loneliness of a strange nation.
Peter goes on to add that now they have turned to the guardian [bishop] of their souls,
because although there are many guardians around who care about the things of the flesh,
there are few who can look deep into “the soul and take care of it”
St. Hilary of Arles
