Dear Brother Knights,
Please know that we had a great day for our Miles Jesu Anniversary on Saturday, as there was a good flow of people throughout the festival.  So, I would like to take the opportunity to thank all of those Knights that helped with parking and others tasks.
The reasoning for the medals that you received last Thursday as a sign of appreciation for you help is that, they have been attribute many miracles (spiritual and physical) that you probably know by the wearing and its devotion of the Miraculous Medal.  So by the devotion of this medal, I am sure it would help us Knights if we pass them every now and then during our charitable tasks and to those of our members that are sick or need our prayers the most.
The other one is on St. Joseph's devotion, which I wanted to share about a true story from a friend of mine.  Such person had so much devotion to St Joseph that in his mission to find a new house, he not only got it on time when needed, but in drawing previously all the rooms of the house and making measurements on how he wanted this future house, he presented to St. Joseph.  He got the house exactly the way he wished.  So I realized about the power of St. Joseph by reading the lives of some saints.  It seems then, that we should never underestimate the power of such saint, as I encourage all to increase our devotion to him.
Thank you for listening, and may The Venerable Michael McGivney help us this new year and intercede for us in all our charitable works, and increase our love to St. Joseph and Our dear Lady as well.   God bless  you each one of you.
Vivat Jesus,
