St. Michael the Archangel

Brothers,  in the last few weeks, most have heard that there is an evil action afoot in Oklahoma City to stage a so-called, "Black Mass."  This insidious action is a direct attack upon Catholicism and our very foundation.  Please join me in uniting with my friend and spiritual guide, Archbishop Paul Coakley praying for a direct end to this evil action.



Please pray daily, The Prayer to St. Michael.  This is offered to defend the Church in Oklahoma City against the wickedness and…

This week’s look into the Knights of Columbus is the Rosary. The Knights of Columbus don’t carry weapons as a matter of practice. Sure, there are the swords that the Honor Guard carry, but those are purely ceremonial. However, the Knights of Columbus are charged with a very important job and that is one of protecting the Church, spiritually. The way that this is done is through prayer. The “weapon” of choice for the Knights of Columbus is the Rosary.

As Knights we have the opportunity…

On Being Catholic

I would like to focus on the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Pope St. John Paul II put forth an Apostolic Letter Laetamur Magnopere with the publishing of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. With this letter, Pope St. John Paul II said, “Catechesis will find in this genuine, systematic presentation of the faith and of Catholic doctrine a totally reliable way to present, with renewed fervor, each and every part of the Christian message to the people of our time. This text will…

Patriotism

We must come to understand what His Excellency, William Lori, Archbishop of Baltimore and Supreme Chaplain recently said regarding Religious Liberty.

Archbishop Lori states, “According to the perspective of the administration and editorialists, the Church’s freedom extends only to worship, preaching and teaching. It does not extend to putting its teachings into practice through its own institutions when they hire or serve people of other faiths. But when freedom is reduced to…

Pro-Life

This week’s look into the Knights of Columbus is a look into a very important position that the Knights have and that is the Pro-life issue.  The Catholic Church is very clear in her teaching about what the  Catholic person is to accept regarding this most important issue of our time.  The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches us that all life is sacred from conception to natural death.  There are many facets to this, not just the two major issues that most latch on to, abortion and the…

Vocations

I would like to focus on vocations to the priesthood. To consecrate one’s life to God is a unique and often times daunting proposition. It can be a time of great fear and at the same time it can be a time of wonder, growth, and in many cases a greater understanding of what it means to be Catholic in an ever changing world.



But…



Those men who are looking to enter into the formal service of The LORD need our help and support. They cannot do this alone. Some choose, as the…
