Wisconsin men’s group spreading nationwide, emphasizes restoration of the sacred

Catholic World News - September 07, 2010

The National Catholic Register has profiled the Knights of Mercy, a Wisconsin men’s apostolate founded by Father Rick Heilman in 2006. The organization has grown to 300 members and will soon spread to other states.

“I know men don’t like watered-down stuff,” said executive director Jeff Mahoney. “They’re looking for a challenge, a battle.”

The apostolate, which is approved by Bishop Robert Morlino of Madison, encourages men to frequent the sacraments, study Scripture daily, and serve others. Monthly meetings include adoration, confession, Benediction, and the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. The organization has formed a schola to promote Gregorian chant and encourages proper attire at Sunday Mass.

“The Knights of Divine Mercy apostolate seeks to awaken in men the eager desire for a knight’s true calling: the quest for holiness and a restoration of the sacred,” according to the group’s web site.

    The Holy Spirit be praised! With this kind of leadership from REAL men, let us hope more women will find support and protection that helps them chuck "feminism" and live as true daughters of Mary. God bless you -
