Brother Daniel Salomon, GK ---Rediscovering Jesus Question (please be prepared to discuss these questions at our next meeting)

Dear Brother Knights,

Father Don, one of our chaplains and parish priests of Saint Clare's Catholic Church when asked how we can help him would like us to focus more on spiritual development. 

Please read the Prologue, Opening Thoughts and Chapter 1 in Matthew Kelly's book Rediscovering Jesus--An Invitation before our next meeting and be prepared to think about, pray about and share your answers to the following questions in the meeting. Know that sharing is optional. Only share what you feel comfortable and moved to share at the time. I will facilitate the conversation as Grand Knight.

"Prologue: Are You Jesus?"

How much is the sheer busyness of your life preventing you from living the life God is calling you to life?

Feel free to also answer the question differently if you feel you are not busy enough and share how God might be calling you to become more involved and how exactly? 

Even feel free to share your testimony if you feel God has already found the right balance of prayer, family responsibilities, church, work (defined broadly) and solitude and leisure in your life? 

"Chapter 1: New Beginnings"

In what area of your life is God inviting you to experience a new beginning?

"Ask and it will be given to you; search and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you."

Matthew 7:7

Prayer: "Jesus, help me to believe that a new beginning is possible."

Looking forward! Thanks so much! May the peace of Christ be with you!

Sincerely,

Brother Daniel Salomon, GK

Brother Daniel Salomon, GK: Prayer Request from Saint Clare Catholic Church

Dear Brother Knights,

As you know, one of the outcomes when we asked Father Don for help is that we help Father Don when we pray for his parish.

Please keep Saint Clare Catholic Church in your prayers.

Please especially pray for our very own Rick LeFaivre who was ordained a deacon last Thursday and will be ordained a priest this coming June. After this priestly ordination he will study one more year in Rome and then be assigned to serve in a parish here in the diocese.

Please keep Rick in your prayers.

Please pray for Father Don as he is away at the annual Priest's Convocation.

By all means, also keep St. John Fisher in your prayers too and your priests and deacons.

Looking forward! Thanks so much! May the peace of Christ be with you!

Sincerely,

Brother Daniel Salomon, GK

Happy Feast Day of Saint Francis of Assisi (October 4) from the Grand Knight
