Welcome Message from the Grand Knight
You can make a difference…Just do something little.
Brothers: I’m impressed how almost all of our volunteer activities require less than two hours of time. In the scale of a week or a month, giving two hours of your time is a small sacrifice.
Giving for the good of another is important in loving God. Volunteering 15 minutes, an hour, or 2 hours at a Food Drive, Pancake Breakfast, KOVAR drive, or Handyman Crew activity has a big impact on the food insecure, pregnant moms with financial needs, families that have members with intellectual disabilities, or a Loudoun resident that needs a little help.
Living life with this focus reminds us that anyone can become a saint, whether they are a business executive, a software engineer, or even a retired grandparent. All are called to holiness. We must strive for this holiness in our everyday lives, and we must help others follow this same path. As we do this, we will find that when we live the little way fully, we leave no room for obsessing over worldly pursuits or accolades. For all of us, St. Theresa’s “little way” is something not just to admire, but to live out in our daily lives. This is why this young nun from a small town in 19th century France is so important for us today: her “little way” can bring us to Jesus … and in doing so we can bring our family and friends with us.
