October 2020

Brother Knights,

October is here and the beautiful Fall colors are a wonderful sight to see.  Fall and Spring are my two favorite seasons.  I like them so much because of the steady and complex transition that occurs every year on a grand scale.  So much change occurring by the minute over the course of weeks and months, and what is utterly magnificent is the order by which all that change abides.  Perhaps these two seasons are another manifestation to me of Who is in charge. 

The reassurance that God is in charge provides me a sense of calm despite the endless negative barrage the secular world chooses to focus its attention: pandemic confusion, social unrest, misguided standards of correctness and economic uncertainty to name just a few. To be sure, there is a plethora of reasons, featuring mainly disordered and ill-defined sentiments, for the tumultuous state humanity finds itself often mired in and that we find ourselves uniquely a part of, but still called upon to do something.  We can do something for the good in our world, and we must do something through the grace and mercy of God – the One who is in charge.  We must act with the same urgency as Christ did two millennia ago.

I’ll say it again this month, the challenges we all face demand that we find new solutions to help the Church, our parishes, our communities, our councils and the Order.  Never let a challenge stifle effort to advance God’s Kingdom.  Rather, we should be that much more determined and focused on God to render any challenge trivial.

“Bad times, hard times, this is what people keep saying; but let us live well, and times shall be good. We are the times: Such as we are, such are the times.”

                                                                                             - Saint Augustine

Vivat Jesus!
