PHOTO OF THE MONTH
Why did Jesus, the sinless one sent from the Father in heaven, submit himself to John's baptism? John preached a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins (Luke 3:3). In this humble submission we see a foreshadowing of the "baptism" of Jesus bloody death upon the cross. Jesus' baptism is the acceptance and the beginning of his mission as God's suffering Servant (Isaiah 52:13-15; 53:1-12). He allowed himself to be numbered among sinners. Jesus submitted himself entirely to his Father's will. Out of love he consented to this baptism of death for the remission of our sins. Do you know the joy of trust and submission to God? Read More »

SALUTATION TO THE CHOIR OF POWERS – SURRENDER TO GOD
By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Powers may the Lord protect our souls against the snares and temptations of the devil.
The Knights are drawn to leave the ways of the world by attending to their spiritual advancement. They are armed against evil temptations and avoid occasions of sin by submitting themselves to spiritual formation, through spiritual reading, studying the lives of the Saints, prayers and the Sacraments . Through the Knights of St. Michael or their parish faith formation program, they learn to grow in faith and become like clay so as to be conformed to the Will of God.
SALUTATION TO THE CHOIR OF VIRTUES - STRENGTH
By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Virtues may the Lord preserve us from evil and falling into temptation.
The Knights devoutly participate in the liturgical life of the parish . They must become familiar with the liturgy and assist at Holy Mass by following the missal, saying the Mass prayers, singing hymns and receiving Communion. In preparation for special liturgical seasons of Christmas, Lent and Easter, the Knights prepare their souls by observing the Lenten rules of fasting and abstinence; celebrating Holy days of Obligation; making good confessions and meditating on the mysteries of the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus. In so doing, the Knights gain divine protection and are preserved from evil and falling into temptation.
SALUTATION TO THE CHOIR OF PRINCIPALITIES - OBEDIENCE
By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Principalities may God fill our souls with a true spirit of obedience.
The Knights strive for a deeper prayer life by attending daily mass whenever possible. The Knights dispose themselves to the Lord during Eucharistic adoration. Under the grace of obedience, they devote their time praying the Rosary, the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, the Chaplet of St. Michael, wearing the Brown Scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel and honoring the Hearts of Jesus and Mary by attending First Friday and First Saturday devotions. In return, they gain great merit from Heaven for they shall receive all the promises attached to these devotions.
SALUTATION TO THE CHOIR OF ARCHANGELS – GOOD WORKS
By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Archangels may the Lord give us perseverance in faith and in all good works in order that we may attain the glory of Heaven.
The Knights practice their faith by consecrating their lives to God. They choose a life of obedience, poverty and chastity according to their state in life . They strive to persevere in faith and good works by living a truly Christian life amidst worldly distractions. They encounter some form of persecution but are strengthened by the grace of suffering with Christ.
SALUTATION TO THE CHOIR OF ANGELS – PRAYER
By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Angels may the Lord grant us to be protected by them in this mortal life and conducted in the life to come.
When one is called to live his Baptismal promises more fully, he becomes attuned to the voice of God in his heart. Each response is different but all who are called respond with a lively zeal as if they have found a jewel. They slowly begin to fulfill their Baptismal promises by living a responsible and sensible life according to the state that God has designed for them . Under the protection of St. Michael and the Choir of Angels, these Knights strive to be faithful to their call as they constantly strive to grow in their faith.
