Hi Brothers,

It's the New Year and hopefully we are all ready to put it into high gear for the Knights of Columbus. When I say that, I really mean that we are gonna work harder at saving our souls this year. Isn't that one of the main reasons why most of us joined the Knights to begin with?

I was taught that we are put on earth to do God's will and that life on earth is a test to see if we are worthy of heaven. | We only have so much time to prove to our Creator that we are worthy of that honor. I, like you, levitate to the Corporal Works of Mercy to show my worthiness. In my opinion, there is no other Organization that you could join that makes it easier to perform the Corporal Works of Mercy than the Knights of Columbus. Programs like Food For Families, Coats for Kids, Feeding the Homeless, Prison Ministry, Funeral Ministry, and Special Olympics are just a few examples of programs that are available to us if we just choose to get involved.

Also, don't forget to help grow the Order this year, too! Asking somebody that you know to join the Knights of Columbus is really a great gift that you are offering to them. You  are actually opening the door for that person to get to heaven- that's a pretty noble thing for anyone to do.

So, if you need a resolution, then 2020 is the perfect year to step up your efforts! For myself, I even volunteered to shovel snow at my parish - being from Wisconsin I guess they figured that I would be a natural for that.

God Bless and have a Productive Year!
