State Deputy Message - December 2015


Happy Advent! Beginning the Church's liturgical year, Advent is the season encompassing the four Sundays and weekdays leading up to the celebration of Christmas. The Advent season is a time of preparation that directs our hearts and minds to Christ’s second coming at the end of time and also to the anniversary of the Lord’s birth on Christmas. The final days of Advent, from December 17 to December 24, focus particularly on our preparation for the celebrations of the Nativity of our Lord or Christmas.

Let’s enjoy this Advent season, by having some fun, and by recruiting a “Knight” before Christmas:

     Rudolph, The Membership Director
     You know the Grand Knight and Deputy Grand Knight and the Chancellor and Warden,
     You know the Fin Sec and Treasurer and Recorder and Trustees,
     But do you recall
     The most famous council member of all?

     Rudolph, the Membership Director
     Had a very positive attitude
     And if you ever met him
     You would even say he helps the council grow
     All of the other members
     Used to wonder how he brought in new names
     They never thought poor Rudolph
     Helped the council stay strong with his gains

     Then one council meeting night,
     The Grand Knight came to say,
     Rudolph with your attitude so bright,
     Will you help us grow in strength in new members tonight?

     Then how all the council members loved him,
     As he kept the council growing strong!
     Rudolph the Membership Director
     You'll go down in history!

Merry Christmas!

Vivat Jesus!
