Feast of Saints Joachim and Anne Homily

“As we bless the Mercy Centre, this magnificent arena, we look forward to welcoming literally thousands of young English-speaking pilgrims from many parts of the world. On behalf of our Worthy Supreme Knight, Carl Anderson, I want to thank you for the preparations you have made for our young pilgrims and for what you will do for them in the coming days. I especially want to thank Father Kalisch for his leadership and hard work together with my brother Knights of Columbus and the Sisters of Life as well as many other volunteers . . . You’ve created a spectacular spiritual home away from home for many young people; thank you for your imagination, hard work, and generosity!”

Installation of Knights of Columbus MD State Officers, Votive Mass of Our Lady of Guadalupe Homily

“It is a pleasure to offer this Mass of Installation for the Maryland State Council of the Knights of Columbus. I offer my warmest congratulations to you, my brother Knights, chosen by your fellow Knights to lead the Order here in Maryland. With you, I pray that the coming fraternal year will be a time of growth – growth in membership that is prompted by our own spiritual growth in the principles of charity, fraternity, and unity.

Since that is the intention we bring to this Holy Mass, I thought it appropriate to celebrate a votive Mass of Our Lady of Guadalupe, to whom our Supreme Knight, Carl Anderson, dedicated his administration. What, then, can Our Lady of Guadalupe teach us about living the principles of the Order more fully and leading others to do so?”
