1 "Amen, amen, I say to you, he who does not enter through the door into the fold of the sheep, but climbs up by another way, he is a thief and a robber.
2 But he who enters through the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
3 To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name, and he leads them out.
4 And when he has sent out his sheep, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him, because they know his voice.
5 But they do not follow a stranger; instead they flee from him, because they do not know the voice of strangers."
6 Jesus spoke this proverb to them. But they did not understand what he was saying to them.
7 Therefore, Jesus spoke to them again: "Amen, amen, I say to you, that I am the door of the sheep.
8 All others, as many as have come, are thieves and robbers, and the sheep did not listen to them.
9 I am the door. If anyone has entered through me, he will be saved. And he shall go in and go out, and he shall find pastures.
10 The thief does not come, except so that he may steal and slaughter and destroy. I have come so that they may have life, and have it more abundantly.
1 Peter 2:20b-25
But if you do well and suffer patiently, this is grace with God.
21 For you have been called to this because Christ also suffered for us, leaving you an example, so that you would follow in his footsteps.
22 He committed no sin, neither was deceit found in his mouth.
23 And when evil was spoken against him, he did not speak evil. When he suffered, he did not threaten. Then he handed himself over to him who judged him unjustly.
24 He himself bore our sins in his body upon the tree, so that we, having died to sin, would live for justice. By his wounds, you have been healed.
25 For you were like wandering sheep. But now you have been turned back toward the Pastor and the Bishop of your souls.
Acts 2:14a, 36-41
14 But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and he spoke to them:
36 Therefore, may the entire house of Israel know most certainly that God has made this same Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ."
37 Now when they had heard these things, they were contrite in heart, and they said to Peter and to the other Apostles: "What should we do, noble brothers?"
38 Yet truly, Peter said to them: "Do penance; and be baptized, each one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ, for the remission of your sins. And you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
39 For the Promise is for you and for your sons, and for all who are far away: for whomever the Lord our God will have called."
40 And then, with very many other words, he testified and he exhorted them, saying, "Save yourselves from this depraved generation."
41 Therefore, those who accepted his discourse were baptized. And about three thousand souls were added on that day.
