Get Out and Vote!

Brothers,

Next Tuesday we get to exercise our right to vote.  While as an organization the Knights of Columbus do not endorse any particular candidates or political party(s), please remember that who and what you vote for should be informed by our Faith, and the tenets of our core beliefs, one of which is our belief in the sanctity of life.  Please do your homework to determine which candidates best represent our beliefs and vote your conscience.

Please make sure you do vote, and as you enter the sanctity of the voting booth carry these words with you:

"Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual — or at least that he ought not so to do; but that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country." –Samuel Adams (1781)

 

Thank you and God Bless.

Happy Birthday to All

Brothers,

Support The Vote Against Bill A2270

Brother Knights,

We know that only God has the authority to give or take life.

The NJ “Aid in Dying” bill is a grave affront to God’s supreme authority. Bill A2270 is again to be on schedule for a vote this fall, so please continue to contact your legislators and tell them to Vote No. Go to this page and use the “Click here” link at the bottom. Make the quick, easy phone calls to your NJ Assembly rep’s. http://njrtl.org/op-ed-aid-in-dying-bill-riddled-with-flaws/

The director of NJ Right to Life states, “In reality, the “Aid in Dying for the Terminally Ill Act” is riddled with loopholes and contradictions that place the lives of the very people it purports to empower at grave risk of abuse and coercion.”

Assisted suicide, renamed “death with dignity,” and “aid in dying,” all are murder – a human being is taking a human life, even if it is his own.

On Oct.22, we will celebrate the first Feast Day of St. John Paul the Great since he was declared a Saint this spring. Let us follow the example of our former Pope John Paul II who accepted his sufferings with grace, as part of God’s Master Plan for his life. We never know what graces and relief of Purgatorial time are gained through the sufferings of illness or aging, united to the suffering of our Lord.

Respect Life – from Conception to Natural Death!

Typhoon victims in the Philippines regain hope and employment through the Order’s Livelihood Project

By Brian Caufield

With an innovative program based on neighbor helping neighbor, the Knights of Columbus is helping people in the Philippines get back to work after the devastating effects of Typhoon Haiyan. When the storm swept through the central portion of the archipelago in November 2013, more than 6,000 people were killed and millions more were forced to flee their homes.

Under the Knights of Columbus Livelihood Project, sponsored by the Supreme Council, laborers who lost their businesses due to the storm are being paid to construct motorized boats for fishermen whose vessels and equipment were washed away by the 195-mph winds and 20-foot storm surges. The first boats were delivered in late March, and periodic deliveries since then will bring the total number of boats to more than 100 by the end of the summer. Along with the boats, the fishermen receive fishing gear such as nets, hooks, lures, nylon string and heavy-duty rope.

The Livelihood Project also includes the delivery of seeds to farmers whose topsoil was washed away by the floods and whose land was covered by toppled trees. With financial assistance from the Supreme Council, local Knights purchased and distributed 10,000 coconut seedlings to help farmers replant and provided chainsaws so that they could clear their land of trees, which could also be used for wood to rebuild their homes.
