GRAND KNIGHT'S PULPIT

posted Dec 1, 2017, 3:21 PM by Michael Kahny   [ updated Dec 1, 2017, 3:25 PM ]

    I want to take this opportunity to thank all Brother Knights that participated in our Football Frenzy ticket sales. The funds raised by this project will help our K of C Council assist more families in our community. 


    In case you wondered, the Delphos Knights of Columbus, Council 1362, has 680 members. There are a lot of members that I've never met, so please come to a business meeting (the second Monday of each month at 8:00 PM), or come to, and if you'd like, bring your wife or guest to the "Thursday Members Night". Also, we always need new members, so if you know of any men who are partici­pating Catholics who are not members, invite them to join us! 


    At the November member's meeting, there was some discussion about changing the terms of the 9:00 PM drawing on Thursday evenings. After considering the suggestions, we decided to leave the current 9:00 drawing as is, and to add a second "Grand Knight's Drawing". 


    At the Thursday, Member Night, the "Grand Knight's Drawing" can be entered by putting $5.00 into the appropriate container, and signing the "$5.00 Drawing sheet". No new names can be entered on the sign up sheet between 8:30 PM and 9:00 PM, At 9:00 a drawing of the names of those who en­tered the drawing will take place, and a winner will be determined. All proceeds of the ''pot" will be paid to the winner. You must be in attendance to win. The logic for this drawing is that it encour­ages people to be at the hall for a minimum of 30 minutes, and the winner will always be in attend­ance. The first winner-$75.00--was Gary Holdgreve! Why not come out and join us and maybe you'll win the next pot. 


If you have any questions, please contact me. 

Grand Knight, Bernie Fiedler, 419 605-2345

Week of Awareness for Persecuted Christians

posted Nov 25, 2017, 1:56 PM by Michael Kahny   [ updated Nov 25, 2017, 1:56 PM ]

Brother Knight,

Beginning this Sunday, Nov. 26, the Knights of Columbus will join the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and other Catholic organizations in a Week of Awareness for Persecuted Christians from Nov. 26-Dec. 2.

During this week, many councils will be working to raise awareness about the plight of persecuted Christians. We hope you can join in these efforts, which you can learn about at www.kofc.org/weekofawareness.

You can also support our brothers and sisters who have suffered for their faith through prayer.

Supreme Chaplain Archbishop William E. Lori has composed the following prayer for our persecuted brothers and sisters:

Prayer for Persecuted Christians
 
O God of all the nations,
the One God who is and was and always will be,
in your providence you willed that your Church
be united to the suffering of your Son.
Look with mercy on your servants
who are persecuted for their faith in you.
Grant them perseverance and courage
to be worthy imitators of Christ.
Bring your wisdom upon leaders of nations
to work for peace among all peoples.
May your Spirit open conversion
for those who contradict your will,
that we may live in harmony.
Give us the grace to be united in truth and freedom,
and to always seek your will in our lives.
 
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Our Lady, Queen of Peace, pray for us!

Sincerely,

Vererans Day Remembrance

posted Nov 9, 2017, 12:27 PM by Michael Kahny   [ updated Nov 9, 2017, 12:27 PM ]



Veterans Day and Remembrance Day are opportunities to remember the sacrifices made by each and every member of the American Armed Forces and Canadian Armed Services — including so many brother Knights — who have served or who are serving now and who bear the wounds of war. 

To these brave men and women we say thank you for your service. Please join us in a moment of silence to pray for each of them, especially those wounded and ill warriors still suffering for our freedom. 
 
This Veterans Day we also remember our brother Knights who have earned the Medal of Honor for their heroic bravery while serving in the armed forces. In addition, we continue to support veterans through our Warriors to Lourdes program, sponsored in partnership with the Archdiocese for Military Services, USA. If you would like to join us in supporting a veteran’s journey of faith, click here
 
Mary, Immaculate Virgin, Our Mother, 
please pray to your Son, Our Lord,
 for our warriors and our veterans,
 for our countries and our continued freedom. Amen.

Vice-President Pence Pledges Aid to Christians

posted Nov 2, 2017, 9:21 AM by Michael Kahny   [ updated Nov 2, 2017, 9:22 AM ]

10/26/2017
 
PRAISING THE K OF C FOR ITS WORK IN HELPING THE PERSECUTED, VICE PRESIDENT PENCE PROMISES DIRECT U.S. AID TO CHRISTIANS.

Vice President Mike Pence pledged that the U.S. government will provide direct aid to Christians in the Middle East, singling out the Knights of Columbus for “extraordinary work caring for the persecuted around the world.”

U.S. aid had previously been given to the United Nations for distribution in the troubled region. Speaking at the In Defense of Christians Fourth Annual Solidarity Dinner in Washington, Pence said that the aid had been ineffective in helping Christians who have suffered at the hands of ISIS and other terrorist groups.

“While faith-based groups with proven track records and deep roots in these communities are more than willing to assist, the United Nations too often denies their funding requests,” Pence said. “My friends, those days are over. This is the moment. This is the time. And America will support these people in their hour of need.”

The news was a milestone for the Knights of Columbus, which has led the effort to protect Christians amid a genocide in the Middle East.

Supreme Knight Carl Anderson introduced Pence at the dinner, stating that now was the time to “rededicate ourselves to the defense of our brothers and sisters in faith — and to defending them in a Christian way with the ethics of love.”

“Despite the efforts of so many, the world witnesses again and again the crimes against humanity that we now describe as genocide,” Anderson told an audience that included elected officials, bishops, priests and prelates from the U.S. and throughout the Middle East. “Today that word is rightly applied to what is happening to Christians and other religious minorities in the Middle East.”

In August, the Knights announced plans to raise $2 million to rebuild Karamles, a predominantly Christian town in Iraq that was destroyed by ISIS. The Knights’ drive will enable hundreds of families from Christian and other minority communities, who were evicted by ISIS in 2014, to move back to their homes.

The Knights are urging K of C councils, along with parishes and other Church groups, to donate $2,000, the approximate cost of resettling one family.

Since 2014, the Knights of Columbus Christian Refugee Relief Fund has donated more than $17 million for humanitarian assistance in Iraq, Syria and the surrounding region. The Knights’ documentation of ISIS atrocities and its advocacy efforts were instrumental in the 2016 decision by then-Secretary of State John Kerry to declare the treatment of Christians and other religious minorities in the region as genocide. Current Secretary of State Rex Tillerson reaffirmed that designation earlier this year.

Vice President Pence praised the Knights, saying the organization’s efforts had been instrumental in raising awareness of the genocide in the region.

In Defense of Christians also honored U.S. Representative Chris Smith for his extensive work on behalf of Christians in the Middle East. Smith, a representative from New Jersey, is a key ally of the Knights of Columbus.

In Defense of Christians is a nonprofit, nonpartisan human rights advocacy group based in Washington. The dinner was part of a multiday summit that included meetings about the issues in the Middle East, along with lobbying of members of Congress.

“Scripture tells us that those who lead many to righteousness shall ‘shine like the stars forever,’” Supreme Knight Anderson said in his introduction of the vice president. “There has never been a more righteous cause than the defense of those helpless ones being led to slaughter.”
