"He calls them happy"
Mariana, age 5, was working with the Good Shepherd. When I wondered how Jesus had responded when asked "Who are you?" Mariana explained that Jesus said, "I am the Good Shepherd." When I wondered what shepherds do, she explained, "Take care of the sheep. Give them food and give them water." When I wondered how the Good Shepherd calls the sheep, she replied, "he calls them happy" and added while pointing to the sheep, "these are all the family of sheep." When I wondered later what the Good Shepherd's voice sounds like, she replied, "Jesus' voice. Mary and Joseph wanted to have a baby." She then meditated on the Good Shepherd.
