Manual of a Christian Knight

The following list of duties was written over 500 years ago by Erasmus of Rotterdam. The rules he shows are as true of us Catholic Knights worldwide, there are other Catholic Knights other than the Knights of Columbus.. Archbishop Chaput  summarized these rules in a speech in Phoenix.

1. Deepen and increase your faith

2. Act on your faith, make it a living witness to others.

3. Analyze and understand your fears, don’t be ruled by them.

4. Make Jesus Christ the only guide and the only goal of your life.

5. Turn away from material things, don’t be owned by them.

6. Train your mind to distinguish the true nature of good and evil.

7. Never let any failure or setback turn you away from God.

8. Face temptation guided by God, not by worry or excuses.

9. Always be ready for attacks from those who fear the Gospel and resent the Good.

10. Always be prepared for temptation. And do what you can to avoid it.

11. Be alert to 2 special dangers: moral cowardice and personal pride.

12. Face your weaknesses and turn them into strengths.

13. Treat each battle as if it were your last.

14. A life of virtue has no room for vice; the little vices we tolerate become the most deadly

15. Every important decision has alternatives; think them through clearly and honestly in the light of what’s right.

16. Never, ever give up or give in on any matter of moral substance.

17. Always think through, in advance, the consequences of your choices and actions.

18. Always have a plan of action. Battles are often won or lost before they begin.

19. Do nothing– in public or private-that the people you love would not hold in esteem.

20. Virtue is its own reward; it needs no applause.

21. Life is demanding and brief; make it count.

22. Admit and repent your wrongs, never lose hope, encourage your brothers, and then begin again.

 Father Hilary George Adam Meny

 January 21, 1915 - October 7, 2016

     On October 7, 2016, Father Hilary George Adam Meny, beloved uncle, great-uncle, great-great uncle, and pastor, was gently lifted up to Heaven, after a wonderful Life of 101+ years here on earth.
    Born on January 21, 1915, to Bernard and Catherine (Emmert) Meny, Hilary grew up in Haubstadt, Indiana. After attending grade school at Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic School, Hilary attended St. Meinrad Seminary. On May 14, 1940, he was ordained to the Holy Priesthood by the Most Reverend Joseph E. Ritter, and celebrated his First Mass at Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church on May 19, 1940
     Fr. Meny’s first priestly assignment took him to St. Philip Neri Parish Indianapolis, where he served as a junior assistant until 1947. After this, Fr. Meny served at St. Joe Hill Parish in Clark County and at St. Vincent de Paul Parish in Bedford.
     In 1949, Fr. Meny was named pastor of St. Patrick’s Church in Madison, Indiana, where he lovingly served for over 40 years. While pastor at St. Patrick’s, Fr. Meny was instrumental in establishing Shawe Memorial Catholic High School, where he served as superintendant and Pope John XXIII Catholic Grade School. During his tenure at St. Patrick’s, he also served the parish of the Most Sorrowful Mother of God Church in Vevay, Indiana.
