    03 Jan 22 – New Year’s Resolutions

    03 Jan 22 – New Year’s Resolutions

    Today's Topics:



    1) Greg gives a history of the origins of New Year Resolutions from the ancient Babylonians through the time of Rome under Julius Caesar, to today



    2) As Catholic men we should resolve to make prayer central to our daily activities; "Ora et Labora," "Pray and Labor," starting each activity in the name of God. Greg and Mark spoke about how each prays the daily rosary with their respective groups and how that has impacted their spiritual lives. Another resolution is to read the lives of the Saints daily to provide us examples of leading good Catholic lives



    3) We must resolve to: go to the Sacrament of Confession on a regular basis; conduct a daily examination of conscience in the evening to help us discover what we have done well and what we need to improve on; make regular visits to the blessed sacrament where we can listen to what God is directing us to do



    4) We should resolve to increase our fasting, sacrifice, and Mass attendance. By fasting, we learn to control our base instincts which when in control allows us to focus more clearly on Christ. In sacrificing we imitate Christ in an effort to become more like him and assist those in need. In regular Mass attendance, which we are required to do, we witness the greatest example of sacrifice that the world has ever known. In shifting gears to the Knights of Columbus Council level Brothers should resolve to invite men to join the Order, to become more active and in doing so evangelize themselves, their families, and their communities

    13 Dec 21 – Our Lady of Guadalupe

    13 Dec 21 – Our Lady of Guadalupe

    Today's Topics:



    1) Greg and Mark recount the first apparition of Mary to St. Juan Diego on December 9, 1531. She appears to him as "one clothed in the sun." She desires that he go to the bishop, Juan de Zumarraga, to ask that he build a chapel in honor of her Son, Jesus Christ, "so that she might show the infinite majesty of God to all the children of the Americas"



    2) The story continues with Juan Diego following Our Lady's request to appeal to the Bishop. After much effort, he meets the Bishop, who respectfully listens to his story. However, Juan Diego is sent away. Our Lady appears to Juan Diego a second time and tells him to ask Bishop Zumarraga again. The Bishop asks that Juan receive a sign from the Lady. Our Lady provides Juan Diego with a sign, miraculous roses, to deliver to the Bishop



    3) The miraculous sign was not the roses, it was an image of Our Lady of Guadalupe that appeared on Juan Diego's tilma as he presented the roses to Bishop Zumarraga. Greg and Mark detail the intricate secrets contained within the image



    4) Continuing to discuss the symbolism of the image they recount how the sash indicates that she is with child. Therefore Our Lady of Guadalupe is held as the Patroness of the Unborn. The Knights of Columbus program, "the Silver Rose," demonstrates both their devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe and as well as their dedication to the sanctity of the unborn. Details of the symbolism found within the tilma's image can be found on the Knights of Columbus website at:
