The good shepherd is one who lays down his life for his sheep

This Sunday is known as Good Shepherd Sunday, because the Gospel in all three years of the lectionary cycle is taken from the tenth chapter of St John, ‘I am the good shepherd’. However, we must put aside images favoured by Victorian stained glass windows and children’s Bibles of a similar style. It is not a matter of woolly lambs gambolling in a daisy-filled meadow. The simpering image of a shepherd surrounded by obedient and doting sheep simply will not do. In the harsh and rocky semi-wilderness of Palestine the sheep are scraggy and lacking in charm, and shepherding them calls for energy and self-sacrifice, especially when wild beasts are prowling around.

We continue to expand the range of product in our gift shop which relates to or echoes the art and architecture of the Cathedral. Recent such editions are glass roundels which replicate in glass images, typically mosaics which can be seen in the Cathedral. The image of Our Lady of Walsingham which adorns the side of the pulpit in the Cathedral is a good example of this.
