Knightline 12-3-15 Good of the Order


Our Supreme Knight and Board of Directors have come through again.  We will once again have the star council incentive of $4.50 per dues paying member if your council attains star council status!  If your council has 100 dues paying members that can mean a savings of $450.  That’s worth getting excited about.

Thanksgiving Message

I distinctly remember 40 years ago today—the day before Thanksgiving—November 26, 1975. My mother had died in June of that year, and I was in what would become my last year of work before leaving teaching to enter the seminary. After leaving school I began to drive to our family home in Oxford. There was a terrible snowstorm, and roads and snow removal were not what we know them to be today.…

Iowa Catholic Conference Newsletter - Nov. 20, 2015

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops is asking for your help in urging Congress to protect the right of conscientious objection to abortion.

Can you imagine if you had spent years training to help the sick as a nurse – only to find that to keep your job, you must take part in the killing of a defenseless five-month-old unborn child? This happened to Cathy Cenzon-DeCarlo, RN, who was forced by her employer to participate in a late-term abortion against her deeply held pro-life…

During World War II, those of Japanese nationality in the United States were rounded up and placed in confinement. In the aftermath of World War II, apologies and compensation were accorded to the victims of such unfortunate actions. As…

Reflections following the weekend homily for the 33rd Sunday of Ordinary Time

This was not the homily from last weekend, but is a reflection after the weekend, incorporating part of the weekend homily. —Father Bill Reynolds, State Chaplain, Iowa Knights of Columbus

     Both our passages from Daniel and from Mark’s gospel this week are examples of apocalyptic images. Sometimes in the scriptures it seems like the author was writing while in the midst of a bad experience on illegal drugs.

       Often cosmic images are employed, as indeed the…
