Building the Domestic Church While Strengthening Our Parish


Iowa Knight Life

We are the Knights of Columbus of Iowa. This is our story. The story we can tell best. Men of Catholic faith, performing good works informed by faith. The story of Iowa Knights reaching out to each other as brothers and to the less fortunate making a difference in that small part of the world God has entrusted to us.

We are a family friendly fraternal organization dedicated to helping men, women, children and unborn children. We want to tell you of our activities, our goals and our inspiration. In turn we hope to inspire you the listener to join us in Serving God's people to build up a Culture of Life and of Love.

If you know of a Knight helping others we want to hear about it and so do our listeners! Have an idea for an interview? Email

Our mission is to Inform -- Inspire -- Invite using audio media on radio and the internet.

The Worthy State Deputy has sent out a request for comments here about "how you as a Knight honor Mary our heavenly Mother." I am happy respond because I have come over time to learn how much of a mother our blessed Lady is. She is my mother--and the Mother of all --in the fullest sense of the Word since she is totally with us and for us, Body and Soul, Assumed into Heaven, at all times. When I need solace, I can turn to my mother on earth, a wonderful woman, but I also turn to our blessed Mother, who is eternally and intimately close to her Son, my Lord and, as such, is at one with Him in His work to bring my soul and all souls in a close, loving, communal relationship with our heavenly Father through the power of the Holy Spirit.

It was my honor this morning to lead the glorious mysteries of the Rosary in Saint Benedict's parish prior to the 10 am offering of the holy Sacrifice of the Mass. My heavenly Mother is worthy of honor. By virtue of my baptism, I have been incorporated into the Body of Christ and, as such, am in Communion with Christ--that is, I *am* Christ--as long as I do not commit mortal sin. Since I am part of Jesus' mystical Body, Saint Mary is my mother, too. "Keep the commandments" (from today's Gospel reading). "Honor your mother" is one of those commandments. And what better way to honor the most wonderful Mother the world has ever known but to pray her Rosary with the congregation before her Eucharistic Son in the tabernacle. What a privilege it is to honor the only two people who have ever walked this earth in the absence of sin.

As a lay person, I cannot consecrate the Eucharist; I do not have that power. But I can offer extra prayer, especially the holy Rosary, and in the presence of my brothers and sisters in Christ and in solidarity with those who wish and pray to be closer to God.

May the Lord bless us and keep us and shine His face upon us. May the blessed Virgin Mary (our Immaculate heavenly Mother) pray for us. And may our guardian angels watch over us. Today and always we pray, in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.

Are there any podcasts of Knight Life available past July of this year?  :-)

Comment by M on August 16, 2013 at 8:04pm

At the suggestion of our worthy State Chaplain in a Knight Life podcast from July, our Council will soon implement a "one commandment per month" discussion as part of the regular monthly Council meetings.This will start in September.  On a different note, I would like to hear an entire Knight Life program devoted to illustrating effective recruiting techniques.  Thank you!

Question from the survey email I received:  "What would like to hear about on the show?"
My response:  I would love to hear how Knights across the State are honoring and showing their devotion to our blessed Mother Mary.

Thank you, and may our Lady of Guadalupe pray for you!

Here are my responses to the recent email asking for input about the show.

"What would like to hear about on the show?"

Discuss successes and learning opportunities for the Knights, specially about recruiting. Include discussions to help knight learn more about the responsibilities and benefits of being selected for each of the district or state office

"What will help you grow in your faith?"

Keep my faith active through opportunities in community outreach and involvement. Contemplative prayer studies and opportunities for all. Additional prayer resources for me and the other Spanish-speaking knights.

"What will deepen your commitment to the Knights?"

More give and take. We need to become more responsive, such that when we attempt to contact our fellow brother Knights, there is a greater commitment to respond via emails, text, calls, etc.

"What will enhance your life as a faithful Catholic man?"

Greater faith in Christ through the intercession of Our Lady and Saint Joseph.

"What will help make you a better faithful Catholic man?"

To remember that we are all to be the light of the world by our actions, and help extend the Kingdom of God to all

"How can we all successfully invite more faithful Catholic men to join the Knights of Columbus?"

Have more and greater publicity of social events where prospective knights can meet current Knights.

"What is going to help you and your loved ones get to heaven?"

Humility. Believing that through God's Grace it is possible to do God's will.

"How can the Knights and Knight Life serve the Church and bring everyone closer to salvation?"

Do more events of support at the locations where those in need call home, and not just at Knight halls.
