Try out the HTML to PDF API Prayer to St. John XXIII Dear Pope John, Your simplicity and meekness carried the scent of God and sparked in people’s hearts the desire for goodness. You spoke often of the beauty of the family gathered around the table to share bread and faith: pray for us that once again true families would live in our homes. With outstretched hands you sowed hope, and you taught us to listen for God’s footsteps as he prepares a new humanity: help us have a healthy optimism of defeating evil with good. You loved the world with its light and darkness, and you believed that peace is possible: help us be instruments of peace at home and in our communities. With paternal gentleness you gave all children a caress: you moved

Pray for us so that we do not limit ourselves to cursing the darkness but that we bring the light, bringing Jesus everywhere and always praying to Mary. Amen. Prayer to St. John Paul II Oh, St. John Paul, from the window of heaven, grant us your blessing! Bless the church that you loved and served and guided, courageously leading it along the paths of the world in order to bring Jesus to everyone

Help them dream again, help them look up high again to find the light that illuminates the paths of life here on earth. May you bless families, bless each family! You warned of Satan’s assault against this precious and indispensable divine spark that God lit on earth. St. John Paul, with your prayer, may you protect the family and every life that blossoms from the family. Pray for the whole world, which is still marked by tensions, wars and injustice. You tackled war by invoking dialogue and planting the seeds of love: pray for us so that we may be tireless sowers of peace. Oh St. John Paul, from heaven’s window, where we see you next to Mary, send God’s blessing down upon us all. Amen.

Joe Cimino (954) 217-7763 joeciminofla@gmail.com Dear Brothers in Christ, Today is Wednesday, the last day of April, and the opening verse in the Gospel of John today is John 3:16. God so loved the world that he gave his only-Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life. Today we honor St. Pius V. He was the pope that implemented the reforms of the Council of Trent which was held from 1545 until 1564. It was called to face

Manzo (954) 389-9324 srhmzo@gmail.com Update Your Beneficiaries Sometimes it is easy to overlook the the challenges of the Protestant Reformation. St. Pius V is best known for publishing the Roman Catechism. In 1870 the American Bishops published the Baltimore Catechism with the approval of the pope, St. Pius IX. In1992, the pope, St. John Paul II published the Cathechism of the Catholic Church. These popes embraced the truth that Jesus is the only Son of God and their lives were a proclamation of this truth of our faith. Pope Francis proclaims this same truth today, especially, to the poor. My Brother Knights, let us pray for the grace to follow the examples of the saintly popes. If we do it, we too will embrace the words of the responsorial psalm for today's liturgy from Psalm 34. "The Lord hears the cry of the poor, blessed be the Lord.

If your policy was applied for and issued several years ago, it may very well be that the person you originally selected as the beneficiary is no longer the person you would want to receive the policy proceeds. If you bought the policy when you were single, for example, you may have named your parents as beneficiaries. If you have since married, your policies should be updated to reflect your spouse as beneficiary. Maybe you’ve had children since, who are not named on the policies. Most people list a primary beneficiary, who is specifically designated as the first in priority to receive policy proceeds. We also encourage the naming of a contingent beneficiary, an alternate person designated to receive policy proceeds, usually in the event that the original beneficiary pre-deceases the insured. I routinely call all of my policyholders for annual review appointments, usually near the anniversary date of your policy – that Gratefully, Fr. Frank Catholics celebrate canonizations

One of the matters that I’ll discuss during this review is the status of your beneficiary designations. If they need updating, and they often do, I can complete the paperwork during that appointment.

Our Principles All the good works we do are informed by our four core principles: Charity - Our Catholic faith teaches us to “Love thy neighbor as thyself.” Members of the Knights of Columbus show love for their neighbors by conducting food drives and donating the food to local soup kitchens and food pantries, by volunteering at Special Olympics, and by supporting, both spiritually and materially, mothers who choose life for their babies. Knights recognize that our mission, and our faith in God, compels us to action. There is no better way to experience love and compassion than by helping those in need, a call we answer every day. Unity – None of us is as good as all of us. Members of the Knights of Columbus all know that – together – we can accomplish far more than any of us could individually. So we stick together…we support one another. That doesn’t mean that
  17. 17. pdfcrowd.comopen in browser PRO version Are you a developer? Try out the HTML to PDF API individually. So we stick together…we support one another. That doesn’t mean that we always agree or that there is never a difference of opinion. It does mean that – as a Knight of Columbus – you can count on the support and encouragement of your brother Knights as you work to make life better in your parish and community. Fraternity – The Venerable Michael J. McGivney founded the Knights of Columbus, in large part, to provide assistance to the widows and children left behind when the family breadwinner died – often prematurely. The Order’s top-rated insurance program continues to do this today, as do individual Knights, who last year gave more than 10 million hours of their time to assist sick and/or disabled members and their families. In the Knights of Columbus, we watch out for and take care of one another. Patriotism – Members of the Knights of Columbus, be they Americans, Canadians, Mexicans, Cubans, Filipinos, Poles, or Dominicans, are patriotic citizens. We are proud of our devotion to God and country, and believe in standing up for both. Whether it’s in public or private, the Knights remind the world that Catholics support their nations and are amongst the greatest citizens.

A few hours after John Paul II was declared a saint by Pope Francis in Rome on April 27, 2014, the U.S. shrine dedicated to his life and legacy that is sponsored by the Knights of Columbus was officially renamed in Washington, D.C. During a ceremony near the shrine’s entrance, a sign was unveiled with the facility’s new name – Saint John Paul II National Shrine.
