Christmas Message from Fr. Luis Rodriguez

Dear Brother Knights,

At this Holy Time season I wish all of you and your families a blessed Christmas and a peaceful and healthy 2018.

 Let me say thank you to the team of Knights who put together the Christmas Creche outside Corpus Christ Church on Philadelphia Avenue.  I have seen various people stop and look closely, one might even say meditating, and reading the KofC signs reminding all to “Keep Christ in Christmas”.  Thank you for this.  It is a gentle but poignant truth that prior to his arrival this time of year was, in the ancient world, a pagan time with empty practices, regardless of where men and women were to be found.  Jesus is The True Light who came to illumine our path so the darkness holds no fears for those who know Him as Lord.  May our hearts be open to this wonderful gift.  Have a Happy and Healthy New Year too!

Sincerely in Christ the Lord,

Very Rev. Luis R. Rodriguez VF, 4th degree

About the Knights of Columbus

The Knights of Columbus has been called "the strong right arm of the Church," and has been praised by popes, presidents and other world leaders, for support of the Church, programs of evangelization and Catholic education, civic involvement and aid to those in need.
The Knights of Columbus renders mutual aid and assistance to sick, disabled and needy members and their families. Social and intellectual fellowship is promoted among members and their families through educational, charitable, religious, social welfare, war relief and public relief works.
The history of the Order shows how the foresight of Father Michael J. McGivney, whose cause for sainthood is being investigated by the Vatican, brought about what has become the world's foremost Catholic fraternal benefit society. The Order has helped families obtain economic security and stability through its life insurance, annuity and long-term care programs, and has contributed time and energy worldwide to service in communities.

The Knights of Columbus has grown from several members in one council in 1882 to more than 14,000 councils and 1.8 million members throughout the United States, Canada, the Philippines, Mexico, Poland, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Panama, the Bahamas, the Virgin Islands, Cuba, Guatemala, Guam and Saipan.

Chambersburg Council 1426, chartered in 1909, has been serving the needs of Corpus Christi parish and the Chambersburg community for over 100 years. We are very fortunate at Corpus Christi that all of our priests are members in good standing of our Order and promote our efforts in the community.

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. The 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 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 Orders 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 its in public or private, the Knights remind the world that Catholics support their nations and are counted among the greatest citizens.
