We will continue to review some of the more significant KofC events and accomplishments which have occurred since the turn of the century.

  • 2005: The Knights send 2,000 wheelchairs to land-mine victims and people with disabilities in Afghanistan and elsewhere.  Through its partnership with the Global Wheelchair Mission, Knights have since distributed nearly 25,000 wheelchairs around the world.
  • 2005: Villa Maria Guadalupe, the Order’s pro-life retreat center in Stamford, Conn., operated by the Sisters of Life, opens.
  • 2006: In its first international expansion in almost a century, the Order charters its first councils in Poland, beginning with John Paul II Council 14000 in Krakow.
  • 2006: In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in the U.S. Gulf, Knights donate more than $10 million and 100,000 volunteer hours to help rebuild Catholic churches and schools.
  • 2007: The Knights of Columbus Incarnation Dome, a 3,780-square-foot mosaic depicting mysteries of Christ’s life, is constructed at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.
  • 2007: Represented by the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, the Knights and K of C families are defendant-intervenors in a case challenging the words “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance.  Court decisions in 2009 and 2010 uphold the words’ constitutionality.

As we approach the end of the 19th year in the 21st century it's interesting to review some of the more significant K of C events and accomplishments which have occurred since the turn of the century.

2000: Pope John Paul II canonizes six Mexican priest-members of the Knights of Columbus who were martyred during the era of Church persecution there in the early 20th century.  The following year, John Paul II beatifies Blessed Carlos Rodríguez, a layman from Puerto Rico.  Three additional members from Mexico have since been beatified, and one canonized.

2001: The Knights of Columbus Museum opens in New Haven.  In addition to a permanent exhibit on the Order's history, the museum has featured numerous temporary exhibits and priceless works of art, such as Michelangelo's 16-foot wooden study model for the dome of St. Peter’s Basilica.

2001: In response to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, the Knights on Sept. 12 establishes its $1 million Heroes Fund.  Checks for $3,000 are presented to the families of all full-time professional law enforcement, firefighters and emergency medical personnel who lost their lives at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.  Forty-five Knights were killed on 9/11.

2002: The Order establishes a $2 million Pacem in Terris Fund to promote peace and education initiatives in the Holy Land and provide support for the Christian community there.

2003: 100,000 copies of a pocket-sized prayer book, Armed With the Faith, are printed by the Order and the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA, and sent to troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, along with 10,000 rosaries.

IWKnights Corner (Bulletin Insert) for November 25, 2018

Did you know this about the IW Knights of Columbus?

The IWknights are quite familiar with the task of preparing and serving a large number of meals over an extended period of time via our Fish Fry and BBQ’s.  But our brother Knights in Florida have taken the task to a new and impressive level as described in the following article.

“Imagine serving 3,500 meals in one day and then doing that every day for several weeks.

That’s exactly what Knights of St. Sylvester’s Council 13277 in Navarre, Fla., did in the aftermath Hurricane Michael, which hit on Oct. 10 as one of the strongest storms ever to make landfall in the United States.

The impact of the storm is still visible at St. Dominic’s Catholic Church in Panama City.  Soon after the hurricane passed, the church turned into a major distribution center, handing out supplies to between 2,000 to 4,000 people daily.  Almost a month later, it still maintains that level of service, and has become a hub for volunteers from all areas.

All those victims of the hurricane, along with the volunteers, need to eat.  That is where the Knights from St. Sylvester Council step in.

‘It’s just a matter of who we are and how we’re wired,’ said Ivan Delabruere, a Knights field agent.  ‘We’ve had Knights from all over the country here.  It’s just not the panhandle.  You’ll hear some different accents with Knights’ shirts on.  Like, a Little Cajun, a little northwest.’

Members like Grand Knight Jim Brown, Faithful Captain Neal Carter and Frank Suarez have joined Delabruere, traveling over 80 miles to Panama City to serve meals since the beginning of relief efforts.  Distributing an average of 3,500 meals per day, cooked with a smoker and grill, they serve pulled pork, hamburgers, ribs and hot dogs with a secret blend of sauces to volunteers and victims.

‘We had a couple come in the other day, they got three kids at home and they hadn’t eaten anything,’ said Carter. ‘They hadn’t had a hot meal in weeks, and they came through and we gave them more than enough food for a couple of days. Just to see their overwhelming joy and gratitude for what we're doing for them. That's all we need for thanks.’

Knights from across Florida — from Navarre to Homestead — as well as Alabama, Louisiana and Indiana continue to assist in relief and recovery efforts following Hurricane Michael, whether that is in the form of serving meals, delivering supplies or removing debris.  As a whole, the Knights have raised and contributed more than $526,000 to victims throughout the state of Florida.

And the secret sauce for their cooking? Delabruere responded, ‘The secret sauce is charity.’”

“Providing relief from natural disasters is a key part of putting faith into action for the Knights of Columbus and its members.  Those members - both young and old including K of C insurance agents - have been on site since Hurricane Michael hit.  They have helped with cooking and distributing food and other supplies to as many as 4,000 people a day.

A new home for a pastor displaced by the massive storm was part of the $526,000 K of C Supreme Knight Carl Anderson distributed on a visit to the Diocese of Pensacola-Tallahassee.  Those donations included a gift of $100,000 to that Diocese to assist with the rebuilding of churches and schools.  He also met with Bishop William Wack.

During the visit Supreme Knight Anderson also personally delivered the 29-foot camper trailer to Fr. Anthony Nguyen, Pastor of Sts. Peter and Paul Church—a mostly Vietnamese parish in Panama City.  Fr. Anthony has been sleeping in a classroom inside the parish hall since Hurricane Michael destroyed the rectory.

 ‘The gift of the camper trailer is an important sign of recovery for the parish families and communities of Sts. Peter and Paul,’ said Supreme Knight Anderson.  ‘While many organizations provide disaster relief services to the general public, it is the Knights’ unique mission to serve Catholic religious institutions like Sts. Peter and Paul and others in the Pensacola-Tallahassee diocese in such times of disaster.’

Fr. Nguyen expressed deep gratitude to the Knights of Columbus and Supreme Knight Carl Anderson by saying ‘It will be nice to have a home to sleep in tonight.’

Bishop Wack said the visit from the Knights provided a much needed morale boost and the involvement of Knights volunteers will be critical as the community begins to rebuild.

‘For us it's important to have not just the local Knights involved, but also Knights from the state and national level as well.  It's important because we feel like we're all alone.  It’s been critical for our morale but also just literally to help us rebuild,’ said Bishop Wack.’

Did you know this about the IW Knights of Columbus?

Cecilia Hadley has written a wonderful article about the Knights of Columbus effort in World War I.  The piece is too long to publish in this column but the link to the entire article can be found on our Facebook page (address below).  The original article is presented in Colombia On-Line and entitled: A Century after the armistice, the Knights’ work during World War I remains one of the Order’s greatest legacies.

“The United States, after years of debate, mobilized for war in the spring of 1917.  The Supreme Council had a momentous decision to make: Should the Order mobilize, too?

A year earlier, councils in New Mexico, Texas and Arizona had responded spontaneously to assist National Guardsmen sent to the U.S.-Mexico border. The Knights established recreation halls, which were open to all “regardless of creed or color,” and facilitated Mass for Catholic servicemen.

With the world at war, could the Order expand the program to a global scale?  Some Council members thought it unwise to attempt, but support for the idea swelled at the grassroots level. Councils in Missouri and Vermont, for example, quickly raised thousands of dollars to open K of C recreation centers near local military installations.  Canada had entered the war in 1914, and Canadian Knights were also raising funds to support troops.

So, in May 1917, Supreme Knight James A. Flaherty sent a letter to President Woodrow Wilson, proposing to establish centers “for the recreation and spiritual comfort” of servicemen. The proposal was readily accepted, and the Knights’ “hut program” became the flagship initiative of the K of C Committee on War Activities.

The Knights eventually established approximately 250 recreation centers in Europe, as well as 450 in the United States, each with the slogan: ‘Everybody Welcome, Everything Free.’

Earlier this year, in August, the Knights of Columbus staged our annual convention in Baltimore.  Recently Supreme Knight Carl Anderson released a video report of the Order’s accomplishments and plans for the future which he presented to the attendees.  The following text is Supreme Knight Anderson’s opening remarks delivered on the video (runtime 23 minutes+).  The links to the video presentation and/or the complete text are available on our Facebook page or Web Site (see addresses below).

“My brother Knights, it was the summer of 1873 and a young man was at a crossroads.  With his father’s blessing, he had left home for school some months before filled with hopes and dreams.  But now his father was dead, and he was back at home.  He had no money for tuition. He had a mother and younger brothers and sisters to support.  His only option was to find a job.

But the Holy Spirit intervened. Powerful people became aware of the young man’s plight.  They saw in him character.  They saw in him a deep faith.  And most of all, they saw in him promise — the promise of a man on a mission.

So, they arranged for a scholarship, a concept little known at the time.  And on Sept. 14, 1873, Michael McGivney of Waterbury, Conn., entered St. Mary’s Seminary, just a few miles from here.

Four years later, he was ordained by Baltimore’s Archbishop James Gibbons in the Cathedral of the Assumption.

Father McGivney had arrived in that rare 19th-century American city — a city where Catholicism was accepted, even popular.  In fact, it was the birthplace of the Catholic Church in the United States.  It was America’s first diocese and the home of our first American bishop, John Carroll, whose family lived at the intersection of faith and liberty in the new nation.

The bishop’s cousin, Charles Carroll, was the only Catholic to sign the Declaration of Independence, and he became one of our nation’s first senators. Bishop Carroll’s brother, Daniel, signed both the Articles of Confederation and the Constitution.

So at a time when Catholics in the colonies were ostracized or outright attacked, the Carroll brothers and their cousin stood firm in their faith.  They believed that religious freedom for all was the bedrock of freedom in the New World.”

As we mentioned last weekend, it has been forty years since Cardinal Karol Wojtyła from Poland was introduced to the world as the third bishop of Rome in one year, taking the name of John Paul II.  We mentioned the Knights of Columbus had a strong relationship with St John Paul II.  We listed 5 of 10 facts about that dynamic relationship – the following are the remaining five facts.

  • John Paul II wrote papal messages to the Knights to commemorate their Supreme Conventions. You can read them on our Facebook page.
  • John Paul II canonized six Knights. They were the Mexican martyrs killed during the Cristero War in the 1920s.  He also beatified Carlos Manuel Rodriguez, a member of the Knights of Columbus in Puerto Rico.
  • The Knights has supported World Youth Day through the years, an initiative of John Paul II, including the largest English-language site in Kraków in 2016.
  • Supreme Knight Anderson discussed the Cause for Canonization of Father Michael J. McGivney with Pope John Paul II in April 2002.
  • The Knights of Columbus received the gift of a small oil lamp used by Pope John Paul II at the World Peace Summit he hosted in Assisi in January 2002.

BONUS FACT: Since John Paul II is a saint, our relationship with him is never over!  Let us pray that he is an intercessor on our behalf, and for the whole world.

“Forty years ago, Cardinal Karol Wojtyła from Poland was introduced to the world as the third bishop of Rome in one year, taking the name of John Paul II.

Pope John Paul II would serve as pope for over 26 years, the second-longest papacy ever. From the first days of his papacy to the end of his life, the Knights of Columbus had a strong relationship with this modern-day saint.

The following are 5 of 10 facts about that dynamic relationship – next week we will present the remaining five facts.

  • John Paul II wrote a handwritten letter to the Knights of Columbus in 2002 that read, “As long as I have breath within me I shall cry out: Peace, in the name of God.”  It was included in a 2003 display at the Knights of Columbus Museum titled “John Paul II: A Passion for Peace” and is currently exhibited at the Saint John Paul II National Shrine in Washington, D.C.

IWKnights Corner (Bulletin Insert) for October 14, 2018

Did you know this about the IW Knights of Columbus?

October has many traditions.  There’s post-season baseball, tailgating at football games, apple picking and, of course, Halloween.  But most importantly, there is the Rosary.

As decreed by Pope Leo XIII, October is the Month of the Rosary.  For Knights of Columbus, this has a special significance.  When a man joins our Order, he receives a Knights of Columbus rosary – at 1.9 million members, that’s a lot of rosaries.  And praying the rosary is an activity that our members do communally as part of council life.

According to Catholic traditions, St. Dominic was given the rosary by the Blessed Virgin Mary in 1214 in the Monastery of Prouille.

Since then, it has become one of the Catholic Church’s powerful tools of prayer. But why pray the Rosary? Here are 5 of them.  One for every decade.

1) The Blessed Mother gave us 15 Promises if we prayed the rosary;
2) To obtain world peace;
3) Time to reflect on the Gospel mysteries;
4) Spiritual healing;
5) Prayer works!

The reason why October is the Month of the Holy Rosary is due to the power of prayer.

In 1571, Pope St. Pius V organized a group of Christian forces, known as the Holy League, in defense of an imminent invasion by the Ottoman Empire.  Before a battle with the Ottoman fleet in the Gulf of Patras, in the Ionian Sea, the pope called on all of Europe to pray the rosary for victory.  These prayers were answered, with the Holy League defeating the much larger Ottoman forces on October 7 at the Battle of Lepanto.

To commemorate the victory, Pius V established the feast day of “Our Lady of Victory” – also known as Our Lady of the Rosary.

“For four years running, the Knights of Columbus has championed the cause of suffering Christians in the Middle East.  But the hard truth is that Christians are on the verge of extinction in the Middle East.  We must not allow this to happen.”

In this month’s Columbia On-line magazine, a timeline of some KofC activity in the Middle East is published.  Please remember this prayer to Our Lady Help of Persecuted Christians.

O God of all the nations,
the One God who is and was and always will be,
in your providence you willed that your Church
be united to the suffering of your Son.
Look with mercy on your servants
who are persecuted for their faith in you.
Grant them perseverance and courage
to be worthy imitators of Christ.
Bring your wisdom upon leaders of nations
to work for peace among all peoples.
May your Spirit open conversion
for those who contradict your will,
that we may live in harmony.
Give us the grace to be united in truth and freedom,
and to always seek your will in our lives.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Our Lady, Queen of Peace, pray for us.

Our Lady Help of Persecuted Christians, pray for us.

Follow us on www.IWKnights.com/bulletin or at facebook.com/IWknights 9981 and NOW on Twitter at twitter.com/IwKnights  and find the link to the aforementioned timeline with a summary of some of the many ways that Knights of Columbus has aided vulnerable communities in the Middle East during this critical time.
