**********What's NEW**********

Scripture Chapters for December:

My Brother Knights, please read the following scripture passages and then answer the questions that follow:

Proverbs 25: 6-7
“Do not put yourself forward in the kings presence or stand in the place of the great; for it is better to be told, ‘Come up here,’ than to be put lower in the presence of the prince.”

Questions:
1. How does this passage in Proverbs 25: 6-7 compare with the passage in Luke 14: 7-11?
2. What do you think these verses say about self-promotion and humility?

Proverbs 25: 27
“It is not good to eat much honey, so be sparing of complimentary words.”

The Catechism of the Catholic Church reference 2480 is as follows:
“Every word or attitude is forbidden which by flattery, adulation, or complaisance encourages and confirms another in malicious acts and perverse conduct. Adulation is a grave fault if it makes one an accomplice in another’s vices or grave sins. Neither the desire to be of service nor friendship justifies duplicitous speech. Adulation is a venial sin when it only seeks to be agreeable, to avoid evil, to meet a need, or to obtain legitimate advantages.”

According to CCC 2480, flattery can be a mortal or venial sin, depending on the circumstances.
Questions:
1. What circumstances does the Catechism mention?
2. When is it right to compliment others?

Respect Life Prayer

Dear God,
   We see life cheapened every day through abortion and other forms of abuse, through terrorism, and other acts of violence, and through neglect of children, the poor, and the elderly.
   In a world of plenty, we can forget that there is nothing more precious than human life.
   Give us the grace to see how we can make a difference, and encourage change in our culture.
Inspire us with the stories of Mary and other mothers of unexpected pregnancies, who knew that every child is a gift of God's grace and is wanted by you in this world.
   Encourage conviction in the hearts of those who do not yet know or understand that a desire for choice is no reason to end any life and that you desire that all life come only to a natural end in you.
                    Amen.
