“Knights, faith, sports belong together”

Our Bro. Patrick Macken wrote quite a fine article about the Knights of Columbus’ tremendous support for sports in this week’s issue of the BC Catholic.  Thank you, Worthy State Advocate Ming Lau, for sending us a digital copy.  You can read it here.

Euthanasia Seminar

EuthanasiaSeminar

Archbishop J. Michael Miller opens the seminar in prayer. We also prayed the Angelus at noon, and the Liturgy of the Hours after lunch. We need to pray, pray, pray to combat this evil.

We were happy to run into several St. Paul parishioners, our Assistant Pastor Fr. Nick and several former Assistant Pastors at today’s Euthanasia Seminar in the John Paul II Pastoral Centre. It was the first time for the presentation room to be open to the public.

The matters discussed were indeed alarming, but we know that Christ has already won the victory for us. All we have to do is claim it for our generation, in our space and time. We must!

Let us pray that the Canadian Parliament will act swiftly and decisively to protect our elderly, disabled, and depressed against euthanasia, and to prevent our medical professionals from being complicit in their killing.

40 Days of Lent, 40 Days for Life kicks off today

ashwedWith a cross of ashes on our forehead, we reflect on the things we can do to make this Lent meaningful for us and pleasing to the Lord.  As our Chaplain said in his homily today, it is not enough to fast and give up certain things; we should also take positive steps:  almsgiving, charitable outreach, more time for prayer.

The 40 Days for Life campaign which also starts today is a good part of our Lenten practice.  Giving up one hour of our time to prayerfully witness in front of the abortion clinic opens up many doors to grace:

  • We remind passersby that abortion is not a settled issue, that while this injustice persists, there are still people fighting to right this wrong.
  • We stir the conscience of abortion providers and their assistants.
  • We offer mothers-to-be pause to reconsider the life within them.
  • We give voice to the speechless, protection to the vulnerable.
  • We pray and enact in unison with thousands around the world:  Thy will be done, Thy Kingdom come…

Sunday March 8 has been pledged by St. Paul Parish.  It cannot be fulfilled without you, Brother Knights, and your families, committing to one hour.  Email me your pledge.  Do it for Lent.  Do it for life!
