Where there is hatred, let me sow love; Where there is injury, pardon; Where there is doubt, faith; Where there is despair, hope; Where there is darkness, light; Where there is sadness, joy. O Divine Master, Grant that I may not so much seek To be consoled, as to console; To be understood, as to understand; To be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive; It is in pardoning that we are pardoned; And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Samuel claimed him for God, anointed him and the power of God was with him. His predecessor, King Saul, had turned away from God and worshipped false gods. But God found David to be a man with a soft heart and a willing spirit. Like King David, we have been

Try out the HTML to PDF API Only Having Insurance “Through Work” Doesn’t Work Do you know anyone whose life or career has drastically changed during these years of economic downturn? It’s very likely that someone in your immediate or extended family or group of friends is facing financial uncertainty. Maybe there’s a possibility that you (or your spouse) could lose your job or change employers. Too many people have often relied on group term life insurance as their only safety net. Often, this insurance is an employee benefit provided at low or no cost. The existence of this coverage might convince someone that personally-owned life insurance is not Pope Francis goes to Confession Courtesy of Catholic News Sercice
  10. 10. pdfcrowd.comopen in browser PRO version Are you a developer? Try out the HTML to PDF API personally-owned life insurance is not necessary. But only having “through work” insurance can leave you and your family vulnerable. Most group life insurance policies are limited in amount, which may be tied to salary or some other benchmark. These numbers are often capped, and this cap may be dangerously low when compared to your family’s actual needs. In fact, a detailed needs analysis that evaluates your specific situation, will likely show that any employer-provided coverage falls short. In addition, the amount of group insurance offered is almost always reduced, sometimes dramatically, when you retire. You could one day find yourself without coverage, and if your health has changed (which it will as you age), you might also find yourself unable to secure individual protection. At the very least, it will definitely be more expensive. http://www.fathermcgivney.org/en/index.html St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City See more at: http://www.saintpatrickscathedral.org/visit.php

Editor's Corner: Restoration of St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City This past month, my family and I visited New York City. This was not first my first time visit there but it was for my two daughters. I wanted them to experience what the big city was all about. Among the many sights at the Big Apple, we visited St. Patrick's Cathedral. We were surprised to see the big restoration project taking place there. If you have a chance to visit NYC, check out this spiritual haven. Below is a video which explains how special the cathedral is:

On March 29, in 1882 the Knights of Columbus society was founded by Father McGivney.
