Good of the Order - New Beginnings or Old Ways?
Joseph L. Gubasta, Ph.D.
Good of the Order Presentation, Elder Council Knights of Columbus
(January 5, 2012)
To set the tone for this first of the “New Year” lecture let us pray:
This prayer expresses both humor and humility and makes the point that we are human and often need help – especially from the Almighty. In a personal sense will 2012 be a year of new beginnings or a continuation of old ways? In truth, this year will probably be a bit of both. However, as we start the new year, I hope one aspect of our lives, that being Knights of Columbus members, will cause us to ponder how we will respond to the opportunities before us to grow in holiness, work to further God’s Kingdom here at St. Gertrude Parish and the larger Church, in our communities and elsewhere. As brother Knights we are called to charity, unity, fraternity, and patriotism. We are called to rise above the standards of social acceptability and political correctness and live according to the teachings and example of Jesus. How we respond to the opportunities and challenges facing us is important because the world as we know it is watching.
May you enjoy many blessings and graces this year to grow in sanctity and individually show your world who a Knight of Columbus is and collectively what The Order is about.
A Closing Thought:
We are all accountable to someone or something. Let’s not forget our Christian responsibilities to live according to God’s will, Word and ways.
