St. Augustine and St. Paul on Real Bishops

by Steve Ray on July 29, 2018

May God grant us good Shepherd‘s. May he grant us those willing to be politically-incorrect, willing to be honest with their flock, exposing heresy and sin even if it’s among their own bishops and priests — even if it causes them grief, ostracization and discomfort. Where are the Shepherds that lay down their lives for the sheep?

God bless all the marvelous bishops that grace our Church.  I know many of them and I love them dearly. They already heed the words of St. Paul. But there are others who need to take heed…

Acts 20:28–30  “Be on guard for yourselves and for all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood.

Please Shepherds…
