Earl’s Whole Rosary

Our Story …

Old brother Knight Earl enjoyed the time that he shared with his wife of many decades. In particular, he enjoyed being in mass with her and also sharing in the sacrament of Reconciliation (confession). But sometimes, even when good things happen, they can be accompanied by surprises.

Brother Earl had one such moment not so very long ago.

It Is Written …

The Bible tells us that grandchildren are like a royal crown for those who grow old and are privileged to see their generations emerge (Prov 17:6). There is a special bond that grandparents and grandchildren share. Respect and affection between the generations breed strong solidarity and enduring joy for the entire family — even if, sometimes, the old grandfather serves as the brunt of some good humor.

In the Catechism we are reminded that Jesus taught that we should love one another even as He has loved us. We are to honor our parents so that the life of the individual and the family might be long and strong (CCC 2219).

Life Goes On …

Fortunately, Brother Earl survived the drive home. Deni loved teasing him, but she knew when to show mercy. It’s not clear to Earl’s brother Knights just how much mercy the grandchildren showed old Earl, however, when they heard the story of “Earl’s whole rosary!”

Rumor has it that some of Earl’s brother Knights saved their pennies to buy Earl one of those “Rugged Rosaries” with the Knights of Columbus emblem on it. Knights really love that rosary! And it appears as if Earl might need a Rugged Rosary if things continue to happen like they did not so very long ago.

¡VIVA CRISTO REY!

  1. A convert’s life is filled with humility when God unites him with a Woman who is a “Cradle Catholic “ He spends most of his life being exposed to a vast number of “Ah Ha”! moments. So his penance is frequently somewhat large to make up for his limited knowledge of the Faith.. Hopefully the slow learner finds “The Way” before the lights go out. What?, Oh..
