Let’s shun malice and divisiveness in 2017 – Supreme Knight urges Marshallans in a New Year message
My dear Brothers and Sisters,
Once again, we recognize and celebrate the gift of God to humanity; the birth of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
This season calls for a sober reflection and a spiritual renewal engendered on the principles of new beginnings. It is a period to experience the extraordinary grace and love of God.
For us as brothers and sisters of the Noble Order of the Knights and Ladies of Marshall, having just celebrated our 90th Anniversary under the theme:
The Marshallan and the new Evangelization for the transformation of the faith, our attitude should be one of hope and expectation for a brighter future.
As we embark on the New Year we must endeavour at all times to shun all practices of anger, grudges, malice and divisiveness to ensure the onward trajectory of our cherished Noble Order.
It is my fervent prayer that this period will enable us to adopt a positive attitude of change in all our undertakings for our families, friends and those we did not agree with so as to ensure the continuous peace of the world.
May the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, guard our hearts and minds through Christ Jesus our Saviour.
“For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7 Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
From that time forward, even forever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this”. Isaiah 9: 6-7
May the birth of our Saviour be a source of renewal, strength, grace and fortitude in our lives.
As we enter the New Year, I urge all Marshallans to continue to be steadfast in their faith in the defence and protection of the Holy Mother the Catholic Church and the tenets of the Noble Order espoused on unity, charity fraternity and service.
