FOURTH SUNDAY OF EASTER – COLLECT OF THE DAY

Almighty God, merciful Father, You called from death our Lord Jesus Christ, the great shepherd of Your sheep.  Grant us Your Holy Spirit, that when we hear the voice of our Shepherd we may know Him who calls us each by name, and follow where He leads; through the same Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
