Happy Mother's Day

Today we honor Mary, our Blessed Mother and Mother of Jesus Christ, as well as all mothers – living and deceased. Traditionally churches across the world extend special blessings to Mothers and may hold may also hold May Crowning ceremonies.

Now more than ever we need to recognize the underlying reason for the special observance – honoring those loving women who have given the precious gift of life. It is fitting that they be the recipient of gifts and loving affection today. So, do not forget your Mothers this day. For the living, reach out to them by phone or video chat. Say a prayer for those that are already with God and ask for them to be with us now during this time of pandemic, comforting us as they did when they were alive. God Bless them all.

Knight’s Prayer to Mary

Blessed Virgin Mary

Mary, Queen of the Knights, guide all the activities of our Order. Keep us true to our pledge to extend the kingship of your divine son on earth.

Through your intercession, win for us the grace ever to exemplify in our public and private lives, the virtues which should characterize those especially dedicated to the service of God’s Kingdom.

Make us always aware that as your Knights we are constantly observed, our faith judged, and our Order appreciated. Accept, O Mary, this renewed pledge of loyalty and devotion of your Sons, the Knights of Columbus. Amen.
