The Euthanasia Seminar last Thursday was very enlightening, and scary. Alex Schadenberg and Dr. Margaret Cottle pointed out that “safeguards” as played out in countries like Belgium and the Netherlands effectively protect the doctors, not the patient. We need to write our Member of Parliament to voice our objection and ask them to invoke the notwithstanding clause. And pray!
Yesterday’s 4th Degree Exemplification was impressive with the sheer number of candidates and the well-orchestrated ceremony and banquet. Congratulations to the new Sir Knights! And kudos all around to Faithful Navigator (and 6855 PGK) Edgar Ursua, the Assembly 2485 Executive and their wives, and to the inaugural Fourth Degree Team, many of whom hail from our Council.
The call for volunteers for the State Convention this April 23 to 26 has gone out. They need a lot of help setting up the banners on Wednesday April 22 starting at 6pm, and at the Registration Desk on:

This being Holy Week, we take a break from our bustles in order to prayerfully remember our Lord’s Passion and celebrate His glorious Resurrection.

“The humble donkey, pressed into service, is a model of discipleship. Our purpose in life is not to draw attention to ourselves, to have a brilliant career, to aggrandize our egos; rather our purpose is to serve the Master’s need, to cooperate, as he sees fit, with his work.” — Fr. Robert Barron
