Vertebrates and Invertebrates

Meditate on the presentation of the Eucharistic presence of the Good Shepherd
“Who is the Good Shepherd? What do the sheep do?”
“There is a very specific time when the Shepherd calls his sheep to be with him in a very special way.”
“The Good Shepherd, Jesus, calls his sheep to his altar. The Good Shepherd calls his sheep and they follow him”
“Jesus invites us to his altar so that he can give all of himself to his sheep. But at the Eucharist he is present in the bread and the wine during Divine Liturgy/Mass."
“Where have we seen this before?”
“Since we know Jesus is present in the bread and wine do we still need the statue?”
Draw the Good Shepherd and His sheep.
