Faithful Friar News
      With this Lent comes an opportunity to renew faith.
      As knights in the Fourth Degree it is our
      Privilege to represent our Order’s commitment
      To the virtue of Patriotism.
      The love of country is not simply an excuse
      To wave the Flag it is rather a pledge
      To love neighbor. First as a commandment
      Of Christ and second it says that our
      Nation is a protector of all God given rights.
      This is not a political journey, but a religious
      Journey. Let us then use this Lent to grow
      Closer to the Father in Haven. The Bishop has ask us
      To pray before the Eucharist, and so we shall.
      The church asks us to follow the traditions of Alms giving,
      Praying extra, and fasting, and so we shall. We do these
      For love of God and Love of God.
      Have a great Lent.

      Vivat Jesus

      Fr. Kummer
