Grand Knight “John Warden” message

Dear Brothers in Christ;

Welcome to 2021. We are certainly living in strange times and sailing together though unchartered waters.

The challenging issue for society these days is the complete lack of Trust! The perspective of “doing the right thing” has become confused, convoluted, and perceived to be unattainable. Truth has been clouded & overwhelmed for a long time now by greed, pride, deceit & corruption. Satan has been very busy!

But while much has changed, our mission remains the same. Our Order still empowers good men to become great men. We continue to grow as brothers, fathers, husbands, parishioners and citizens. And we are now, and will always be, guided by the principles of charity, unity, fraternity & patriotism. [Carl Anderson, Supreme Knight]

Council 3515 will continue to evolve, as will our Parish but not without your continued dedication & support. We are still operating & open for business, albeit virtual at this point with monthly meetings online. We continue to support each other, our spouses, our clergy, our families, our neighbours and our Community.

In God we TRUST and through the Holy Spirit we will obtain ultimate Peace.

Society and our way of life are in dire need of divine intervention. Devotion to Mary, our greatest intercessor, & Blessed Michael McGivney are opportunities for each of us to effect the truth & light of Christ.

Please pray the Rosary and do the 9 day [10 min a day] Fr. McGivney Novena [insert in recent Columbia]

Vivat Jesus! John

Our Lady of Perpetual Help Pray for us!

Several times we are reminded to repent and pray the Holy Rosary. Our Lady reminds us this in the approved apparitions - Lourdes(1858), Fatima (1917), Akita (1973).

Our Lady spoke the following at Akita:

"The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres...churches and altars sacked; the Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord."

The demon will be especially implacable against souls consecrated to God. The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of my sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will be no longer pardon for them.

Sounds just like what is happening now?

We are living in the Church Militant. All around there are desecrations of churches, statues and the Holy Eucharist, even within Ontario. It seems that a war is raging all around us - Islam jihad, Marxism/Communism and even inside the Church. Again, Our Lady has warned about this was to come at the Fatima message, as there was no Consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart when she asked.

In a 2016 interview*, Cardinal Sarah said

"Charity is the love of God: therefore, we are charity, and we give witness of charity towards others because God loved us first. In the same way, it is also with mercy, superficially understood by many as a clean slate over their sins. But, there is no forgiveness if there is no repentance. Jesus did not say to the adulteress, “Well, go and continue to do what you are doing since I forgive you. No! Because she threw herself at his feet and begs forgiveness, he says: Go and sin no more. Only if we understand this can we fully enjoy the fruits that the Jubilee of Mercy, offers us.

Fellow brothers, we must examine our lives and recent actions. We must change, repent, forgive, and go to the sacrament of confession frequently. We must take the lead and show by example to others.

 

The Chaplains Message

The season of Advent has been celebrated in the Church since the fourth century.   The Church adopted this word from the Latin word Adventus, used in ancient times to describe the arrival or presence of a king who had come to visit parts of his kingdom.

At the beginning of this joyful season of Advent, we set out on a journey of spiritual preparation, not only for Christmas but also for the second coming of the Lord at the end of time. Be watchful and ready: you know not when the Son of Man is coming(Matt 24). Jesus says that on that day or hour nobody knows, neither the angels of heaven, nor the Son, no one but the Father. He exhorts his disciples to be like the doorkeeper in the parable who awaits the return of the master of the house awake and vigilant at evening, midnight, cockcrow, dawn.

As Christians we have the gift of faith; and this enables us to see beyond this world. Let us renew our faith this Advent season so that our eyes may see and our ears may hear the wondrous truth that we are born for immortality. In the seasons light and shade, words and music, holly and Ivy, candles and wreaths of greenery, may we see and hear the joyful proclamation of the coming of our Redeemer. Let us be ready to meet him so that, whatever our weaknesses, strengths, hopes, fears, joys, or disappointments, when at last our Redeemer comes to us, our eyes shall be fully opened and we shall recognize the ONE who loved us from all eternity.

Fr. Dariusz.
