Grand Knight Message - December 2009

Saturday, December 12, 2009 11:36 PM | Rafael Betancourt (Administrator)
Dear Brother Knights,

A couple of weeks ago I was watching a documentary on PBS on Hitler. The human cost of World War II, not including the millions of Jews killed in the Holocaust, was estimated at 55 million dead: 25 million military and 30 million civilian.

At the cost of 55 million lives, WW-II is considered one of the greatest tragedies in human history. However, in 37 years since the infamous decision of the U.S. Supreme Court that legalized abortion in this country, more than 55 million innocent human lives have been lost. This, in my opinion, is a much larger tragedy that begs for God’s Mercy.

I ask all of you to participate in the celebration of the Mass of Reparation on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, January 22 at 7pm, at St. Justin’s Church. All Collections will be donated to the St. Juan Diego Women Center in San Jose to support women struggling to choose life for their unborn children. Let’s also show our support for the Culture of Life attending the West Coast’s Walk for Life in San Francisco on Saturday, January 23, 11am.

Finally, let’s ask Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of the Unborn, and Mother of the Civilization of Love to intercede for us and help us put an end to legalized infanticide in our country and the whole world.

¡Vivat Jesus!

SK Rafael Betancourt, GK
