Lays down his life

Kristin, age 4, works with the Good Shephard work quite frequently. On this particular Sunday, a day after her Grandfather died, her catechist noticed that when she read "He lays down his life for the sheep", Kristin not only moved the Good Shepherd to a position laying down, but all of the sheep, too.

Kristin is the catechist's niece and it was her father who had died. She wondered, "When I saw Kristin lay the sheep down, it really made me wonder if she perceived that her Pa had laid down his life for his family, and now in sorrow we were laying down our lives for each other."
