In Service to One. In Service to All.

I was listening to the gospel recently about Jesus telling the parable of the talents. He tells us how there once was a rich man who went into a far country, but before leaving, he left all his belongings to his servants for them to look after and trade with. To one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another just one, to each according to his ability.A talent was worth about six thousand pence, and in the Gospel a penny is mentioned as a day's wage for a laborer. So even the servant who received the least (just one talent) still received an enormous sum of money. The first lesson of this parable is that we have received immeasurable benefits from God and we need to constantly thank him for all the gifts he has given us, life, family, our intellect, our friends and everything else. The second is that we need to use all those talents that God has given us, both for his benefit and for the benefit of all those around us. We need to make sure not to squander and bury our talents by avoiding others and only doing things for our own interests. As Knights of Columbus, it is all of our responsibilities to use each our talents charitably, developing and using them for the benefit of others. What better way to do that than through this great Catholic organization that espouses Charity for others as it's chief aim and virtue!

Pray for Our Recently Deceased Brother John Heilman
Dear friends, shortly before his own Passion, our Lord Jesus wept tears with Mary and Martha upon the death of Lazarus. In the midst of this sorrow, he told Martha: "I am the Resurrection and the Life: whoever believes in Me, though he should die, will come to life". Jesus raised Lazarus from the tomb to teach us that death is not the end for those who believe, but rather a glorious beginning. Upon leaving this world, the faithfully departed begin their journey toward a heavenly dwelling place, prepared for them by Christ who rose from the dead. The passing away of our earthly life, therefore, is a transition to a new life, in which “every tear is wiped from our faces” and sickness, pain and suffering are no more. Every Knight of Columbus is entrusted to the care of Mary, the Mother of God. We carry the Rosary as the sign of our dedication to her and to her Son. Confident in her motherly love for us all, we entrust the soul of our Brother Knight John Heilman to her, so that she may present them to her Son. Amen
