Dear Brother Knights,

Happy New Year! We put the old behind us and look to the new. It is a fresh start offering new opportunities and new expectations. On New Year’s Day, the Church honors Mary, the mother of God, she carried Jesus to the world, with her unconditional faith, and our blessed Mother saw the love of God in the sorrowful, the ordinary and the joyful.

At the end of 2020, a challenging year for all of us with Covid 19 hanging on our neck, the model of Mary offers a wonderful guide for our year ahead.

Please brother knights, immerse yourself in God’s love and respond to His presence by bringing that love to others. Share how God is working in your life with those around you and resolve to let God shape your heart to be more generous and loving. May your new year be a time of commitment, courage and renewal.  Be assured of my prayers that 2021 will be a year of blessing and joy for you and your loved ones.
