State Deputy Report April 2018

We are not meant to hold to ourselves the Good News.  Jesus wants us to share it with others.  In this way, we encourage one another in this journey toward heaven.  Life can be very challenging, but that is why we need community to help us along the way.

During the great Octave of Easter, as we go forth into the world to do the work of Jesus, let us not forget that He has been raised from the dead.  Jesus is alive and active in the world, even more so in our hearts, since He has given us the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Let us go forth and share the good news and encourage one another, one way we can do that is through all the charitable works we do as Knight of Columbus! Another is by asking every Catholic man to join the Knights of Columbus. What a gift we have to give, Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism.

Many people think of a saint as one set apart from the trials of daily life,            or “too good for this world.” Yet the truth is that every saint engaged the culture of the day in the way that led people – by prayer, works or example – closer to Christ.

But doesn’t that in a way describe many of the brother Knights that you know! So is sainthood really that difficult to achieve?

We continue living our lives helping each other, offering the gift of membership into the Knights of Columbus to every man, by doing that, we give him a great opportunity to be more for others, for himself and for Jesus our Lord and Savior.

God bless you and your family now and forever.
