“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?”
