May 1 is observed as the day of Religious brothers. It is celebrating the life and vocation of religious brothers, on the Feast of St. Joseph the worker, honoring the important role religious brothers play in the life of the Catholic church.
The vocation of a brother revolves around God’s love in three unique ways. A brother is called to personally receive God’s love; to share God’s love with his community and to live in the mission serving everyone, especially the disadvantaged and suffering in the society.
Religious brothers distinguish their consecration through profession to the evangelical counsels of poverty, chastity, and obedience. These vows express the intent to live a life that is dedicated to more deeply entering into the mystery of God.
Let us Thank and Pray for Bro. Roger, who was our chaplain for 10 years. He was born on October 13th, 1938, on the Feast Day of Our Lady of Fatima. He became a Brother in the Congregation of Missionaries of our Lady of La Salette in 1960, celebrating his 62 years of religious life. He always followed the tradition and teachings of the church and is an advocate of life and prayer. On June 15 he is moving to his new assigned place, where he will enjoy fellowship with other members of his community. Thank you, Brother Roger, for your service to the Holy Catholic Church, to the Knights of Columbus and the Mary Queen parish Community. Fr. Sibi Kunninu, MS Faithful Friar.
WHO ARE THE 4TH DEGREE?
They are the Knights on Main Street, the men you probably envision when someone says Knights of Columbus to you. They’re present in their distinct regalia at civic and Church events, acting as honor guards and color corps, or standing in respect at the funerals of members or during adoration of the Eucharist. But there is more to being a Fourth Degree member of the Knights of Columbus than a uniform. They are the men who have chosen to embrace the Order’s fourth principle of patriotism, the men who lead the efforts to reach out to veterans and active military and to embody the fact that one can be a faithful Catholic and also be a faithful citizen.When the Knights of Columbus was founded in 1882, three principles united its members: charity, unity and fraternity. At that time people feared that members of the Catholic faith owed their entire allegiance to the Church and could not be trusted as citizens of their country. Patriotism was added to the Order’s principles in 1900, based on the idea that Knights are loyal to both God and country. Members who wish to live out patriotism together can join “the Fourth Degree.” Members of this degree have the special honor of holding the title “Sir Knight,” participating in color and honor guards and organizing programs that promote Catholic citizenship.
