Good Shepherd Sunday


It's Good Shepherd Sunday and Bishop Iker came to the Missions to preach, celebrate the Mass and baptize. Unlike many bishops, Jack Iker is a good shepherd, who cares for the flock and protects it against the wolf.

Wolf

Who is the wolf? Satan, of course, along with his allies within and without the church, those who tear, rend and attempt to destroy the Body of Christ. People like:

"heretics, hypocrites and Lollards, who with their wretched doctrine hardly every cease to deceive the meek and the simple in the Church. Against them the faithful shepherd must fight strongly with the keenness of the words of sacred scripture and, given his pastoral staff, with the threat of censure."

Heretic

That was written in the Middle Ages but it's true today. The wretched doctrine of our contemporary heretics is in the ascendant, especially in Western Anglicanism, though no denomination is immune. 

Lesbyterian

Pray for more good shepherds, men like Bishop Iker, who will be faithful to the flock and fight against the enemy.

God bless,

LSP

Lesbyterian? You always manage to make me laugh. Okay - well not all the time.

I had to look up Lollards. Learn something every day. I also looked up a picture of Bishop Iker. He appears to be a very, very nice man.

Iker's an excellent bishop. As for Glasspool... what a Lesbyterian.

You can't serve God and mammon.

That's the truth.
