Blessings of Dairy Farm and New Milking Machine
My dear brothers, sisters and well wishers of Guatemala Missions,
am Fr. K. Anthoniswamy, I am a catholic priest belonging to the congregation of Good Shepherd Companions. I am under the care and protection of Most Rev. Bishop Joseph F. Catrambone, M.Div., D.D. (Executive Director, Founder of Guatemala Missions).
I live in andhra Pradesh, india. I am from a poor family. My parents are running a small dairy farm in my place; we have 8 buffaloes and few calves. The calves take nearly 3 to 4 years to grow up and give us milk.
As of now, we are four of us living in the dairy farm, I along with my parents and we have one worker named as ‘Gopi’ to help us in the dairy farm, the worker has no room to stay, he just stays under the shed in the dairy farm. The worker has no one to look after him; therefore we are looking after him. After having come to know my family situation our dear Bishop Joseph F. Catrambone came forward and sponsored us a milking machine in our dairy farm.
Our Dairy Farm and the milking machine was blessed by our beloved bishop Joe and the Good Shepherd Companions on Jan, 29, 2021 at 9:15 P.M of USA Eastern time. We are very much grateful to our dear Bishop Joe, the Good Shepherd Companions and all the well wishers of Guatemala Missions.
Most Rev. Bishop Joseph F. Catrambone is not only our spiritual father but he is a man of charity, simplicity and a good friend in need. We ever remain grateful to him for all that he is to us.
Please continue to pray for us and may your blessings be upon us always. Continued prayers for you,

Thanks for Support of Guatemala
Good evening dear friends and Monsignor José, before the day is over I want to thank you for being angels of God who have made our children have a Merry Christmas, thank you very much for all your donations but especially thanks for all your love, today we were informed that one of our girls Keisy Sofía who is 3 years old, has been diagnosed with leukemia, a mother is also in the hospital for having fibroids in the womb, and the families thanked for the Christmas baskets because they did not have money to buy, but now they have remembered that they are not alone, that you are there ready to help but especially that God does not forget them and this Christmas Jesus will be born in their hearts.

Merry Christmas from San Juan del Obispo Guatemala
Requiem Mass for Departed Brother Fr. Justin Kilonzo
Praised be Jesus Christ.
Yesterday we were enabled by God's grace and providence, to minister a requiem mass for the burial preparation of our departed brother Fr.Justin Kilonzo at his rural home in Suntan Hamud Makueni County.
On behalf of myself as the deceased priest's Bishop and on behalf of The Married Priests Prelature in Kenya, and on behalf of the family of the late Fr.Justin Kilonzo, I wish to thank through the office of our international president, His Grace Archbishop Dr.William Manseau, all those brothers and sisters, Collegues and Friends, who so generously, donated out of their hard earned resources to enable us to pay for the burial expenses accordingly.
What you enabled us to do sent a very good, positive and clear message, impacting on the community who had an opportunity to witness our liturgy and hear our sermon.
