"I Myself will feed My sheep"

"And I will bring them out from all the peoples, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them into their own land; and I will feed them...I myself will be the shepherd of my sheep." (Ezekiel 22)

Alexander, Robert, Peter, little Joseph, big Joseph and Edward receive gifts from the United States after the celebration of holy Mass at Camp GCC chapel. Big Joseph, second from right, received his first Communion. We celebrated the first Mass on the newly donated altar for the chapel, seen in photo. The men from Kenya work in the dining facilities on Al Asad.

The Lord Jesus, the sole necessary Savior of the world, shepherds rightly through the one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church throughout the world, bringing into one communion of love people of every nation, language and race. The Shepherd Himself feeds the sheep with His own Body and Blood in the Eucharist.

Special thanks to Jim Gera for assisting with the training of the men in the Sunday celebration in the absence of a priest. As they gather in communion with the one Church, the men will continue to draw from the one source of salvation. All grace comes through the Church.
