Cultural Diversity Report – April 2020

Dear Brother Knights,

The Resurrection of Jesus Christ gives our lives meaning, direction, and opportunities to start over. No matter what our circumstances…

Happy Easter to All.!!!

The pandemic we are experiencing today just summons us all to take seriously all the serious things, and not to be caught up in those matters less, to rediscover that life is of no use, if not used to serve others. For life is always measured by love, guided by our faith to God.

Being a knight our main role is to perform acts of compassion, it is the essential character of a man and a knight to heal others even in instances when we cannot heal ourselves. Compassion also connects more people in diverse backgrounds where strength comes and is developed and becomes a major component of our mission as a knight.

Now people around the world need us all, we desire to take action to improve people’s lives. We need to unite our strength, the greater the unity – the better we can accomplish our missions. As we are also taught by the church, unity is the fruit of living our missionary identity as this is the strength of our faith.

Let us make these simple eight steps a consistent habit as we need to learn and to have an advantage in compassionate communication so we can fully understand people around us.

  1. We need to focus on the other person.
  2. We need to listen attentively.
  3. We do not need to rush, to respond.
  4. We need to speak well of others.
  5. Please do not do it personally.
  6. We need to avoid assumptions.
  7. Be yourself.
  8. We need to seek the opportunities anytime, to be compassionate, even if there is no pandemic.

By practicing all of these steps, it is now easy to appreciate our neighbours and people around our community. To be compassionate we become genuinely concerned about other people and in people’s needs. This pandemic calls all of us to show to the world what becoming a knight is.

“Sometimes we need the salt of tears to remind us all how to savour the sweetness of life.”

A knight must not leave his neighbour behind.
