My Brother Knights,
Vivat Jesus!
First thing this month is a report about the Council picnic which was held on Sept. 7th. We had about 35
people attend. Thank yous need to go out to some great individuals - Deputy Grand Knight Gerald Wilczynski
and his crew for all the good food they prepared; P.G.K. Vito Faraci for the donation of a keg of beer and
charcoal; P.G.K. Peter Wilhelm for the donation of the ice cream. If you did not attend, you missed a great
time. Try to attend the next year's picnic. I am told the music went on until 8 o'clock.
Deputy Grand Knight Gerry is setting up a Blood Drive at the Council, watch for details. Thru the rest of
the football season, why not watch the games in the Club Room: beer specials, wing dings and
camaraderie. Hope to see all of you at the Motown Review at DeCarlo's on Oct 17th. The Council hopes it
will be a good fund raiser.
We are having our Memorial Mass at St, Margaret of Scotland on Sunday, Nov. 2nd at 8 o'clock
Mass. Breakfast after Mass back at the Council. A sign-up sheet will be posted for a head count for
breakfast.
Till next month - May the Lord hold you in the warm palm of his hand.
Fraternally,
John W Kelleher
MAY THEY REST IN PEACE & MAY GOD BLESS THEIR SOULS

house and is not in use. Please bring them to the club room.
Support your Council.

THIS IS MY BODY
(31st in a series)
Around the year 1433 a non-christian reportedly abused a Host causing a stream of blood to issue forth from it.
While the specifics of the miracle are not recorded, the Host was sent to Rome on the request of Pope Eugene
IV. It was later transferred to Dijon, where it was credited with healing King Louis XII. This Host was destroyed during the French Revolution in 1794.
HOLY FAMILY CIRCLE #981
DAUGHTERS OF ISABELLA
At the end of September, we had a Corporate Communion at St Ronald’s Church. Thank you to everyone who
donated books for our book sale. We are always looking for more women to join the Daughters of Isabella. Besides being a friendly group, we do charitable activities. In the past we have collected baby items for
Amigo Dei Pregnancy Center, collected school supplies for Michigan Intermediate School District, Ronald
McDonald House which is our State charity. We have helped the Xavier Sisters for many, many years. Please
give me a call, (586 771 3602) if you would like to be a participant in this group.

Congressman Gary Peters co-sponsors federal legislation to allow abortion without limits up until birth
The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee recently held a hearing on a bill (S. 1696) which would overturn numerous prolife laws on the state level including a number of laws in Michigan, including our informed consent law and our law
which regulates and requires inspections of abortion clinics.
As National Right to Life Committee President Carol Tobias testified at the hearing, “This bill is really about just one
thing: it seeks to strip away from elected lawmakers the ability to provide even the most minimal protections for unborn children, at any stage of their pre-natal development,” Tobias told the committee. “Calling the bill the ‘Abortion
Without Limits Until Birth Act’ would be more in line with truth-in-advertising standards.”
The House version of the bill is H.R. 3471 and is currently co-sponsored by three Michigan representatives, including
Congressman Gary Peters. H.R. 3471 and S. 1696 attempt to outlaw states from regulating abortion. It’s designed to
prevent duly-elected state lawmakers from enacting laws to regulate abortionists and abortion clinics.
This means Congressman Peters wants to allow abortionists to operate with impunity. J.Smith, Pro-Life Council
Chairman. - ( Vote Pro-Life Candidates.)
HAVE MERCY
Lord, Bless all those who hate and persecute my brothers and sisters in the Faith. Send them your spirit so
that they will find what they are really seeking – your mercy.
Amen

It's with a heavy heart that I start this month’s Knight's Line. We have lost
another SK in September. Ernie Hallman past away just a month after celebrating his 88th birthday in August. TEMPUS FUGIT - MEMENTO MORI. SK's let’s remember Ernie by going out and recruiting a new 4th Degree member to fill his vacancy.
Just returned from a Color Corps assignment at the Divine Mercy Center in
Clinton Twp. It was in honor of the September 15th Feast Day of Our Lady of Sorrows. Another impressive ceremony with the procession on the
grounds. The Icon being carried by SK's while reciting the rosary. Over
200 people in the procession along with 16 SK's in their Regalia.
This month’s Birthday Wishes go out to the following SK's - W Ferris, D
Granowicz, K Jones, R Kreinbring PFN, L Krzesowski, T Laconis, J MacDonald, F Payne PFN, D Robb, A Toth, Arch Bishop Allen Vigneron, K
Warzybok. God willing may you enjoy many more.
Anniversary Wishes go out to Sir Knights and their Ladies this month. SK
Gary and Lady Patricia De Carlo - SK John and Lady Linda Kelleher - SK
Russell and Lady Paula Kreinbring and SK Michael and Lady Marcella
Weiss.
We all know that the response to VIVAT JESUS is VIVAT JESUS. But
did you know that the original response was SEMPER - meaning "always".
I happened to be shopping the other day and greeted another of my senior citizens with VIVAT JESUS and he responded SEMPER. I might be
older then I want to admit.
Just a heads up - Our Council's Grand Knight John Kelleher will be announcing a Memorial Mass in this month’s Knight's Line. All are invited.
Fraternally,
TOM - your Faithful Navigator - PGK
