Getting Ready for Lent

My Brothers All,

Welcome to February!  We are moving closer and closer to our State goals, however, we are nowhere close to our ultimate goal.  Nor are we even half way there. Washington State is ranked 58 out of 74 jurisdictions.  We are better than that!  We have some ground to make up but know that we can do it with all our collective support.  Don't hold those candidates.....exemplify them!  Get them into the Knights so they can put some of that new enthusiasm to work for your council!  If each of you recruit just one new member.....you would make up the ground needed to put your council into the running for Star Council and Washington State back on track, too.  Please see to it that you ask that new parishioner, that new Catholic, that new 18 year old, that man that sits on the pew next to you!!!   Read more...

Our next reflection concerning Jesus Christ as the perfect model of masculinity may seem obvious. We have already looked at Jesus’ habits of prayer and work, as well as his gentleness and his devotion to Mary. Now we note an aspect of his life which most people already consider a trait of genuine masculinity, but which will still profit us for a brief meditation.

Jesus was brave. His courage was unfailing, no matter the circumstances or situations he faced. Jesus was not one to fall into fear, anxiety or worry, and most certainly never gave in to a spirit of cowardice. This is evident throughout the gospels.   Read more...

I am humbled as I continue to review all of the Monthly Service Reports from councils.  It is inspiring to know first-hand all of the great charitable, fraternal and patriotic works of our brother knights in the Washington State Council.  In this Jubilee Year of Mercy, we are truly living what our Supreme Chaplain, Archbishop Lori, describes as authentic signs of the Father’s mercy.

Greetings Brothers,

It was great to see you all at the Regional Meetings! (Don't ask me about the 6 hour white-knuckled drive home from Olympia...It wasn't pretty, but we made it home by the Grace of God!) We are all back at it with a New Year now and a lot of new things are going on for everybody. Read More...
