4. Bishop Dinualdo’s homily: DECISION

a) Joshua asked the Israelites to decide whom to worship: the gods beyond the River; the gods of Amorites; or the Lord who brought you out of the slavery in Egypt to this promised land (Jos. 24: 1-2, 15, 17, 18)

b) Husbands and wives love one another. Be united. (Eph. 5: 21-32)

c) Christ said “Eat my flesh, drink my blood” so that you will have eternal life. Hard saying. Many disciples left and returned to their former way of life.  But the apostles, through Peter, said: “to whom shall we go?  You have the words of eternal life.  We have come to believe and are convinced that you are the Holy One of God” (Jh. 6: 60-69).  Faith is a gift from God.  I believe so that I will understand.

Bishop challenged: the Knights to live their motto: “unity, fraternity, patriotism.  Love unites, love one another as brothers, love our country, love our planet Earth, ‘Our common home’” (Pope Francis, “Laudato Si’”).

Total number of delegates: 653.

Target: 650. Tupi Council – 6981 – 138.  Marbel Council 7658 – 42.  Surallah Council 6023 – 32.  Pulatana Council 12506 (Malungon) – 31.  Koronadal Council 4576 – 27.  Doña Soledad Council 12608 (GSC) – 27 (Early bird).  Rest follow.
