To form a worthy guard of honor to our Divine Eucharistic King in whose service we willingly assume the dignity
and honor of becoming Knights of the Altar:
render faithful, reverent and edifying service to God by assisting His visible representatives, the Bishops and Priests, in
offering the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and in all other liturgical and devotional functions;
enkindle in the hearts of the faithful whom we represent at the altar, greater piety and devotion by reverently performing
the duties of our holy office and by giving good example in our daily lives.

the Lord is Our Privilege !!!
Holiness, or the fullness of Christian life, is given
to us by God through grace, but requires a mature personality, a firm will and good habits. Our Christian life is not simply
a life of do's and don't's, but rather a life of imitating Christ, our model, who is Perfect God and Perfect Man. Through
grace and human effort we can acquire the virtues or good habits that make us better persons, by striving for that human perfection
presented to us by Christ, not only when we reach heaven, but even here on earth.
Virtues are not something abstract, separated
from one's everyday existence. It affects precisely his life, his outlook, his actions and his relationship with others, so
much so that one not only "lives and acts in a virtuous way", but rather one "is a virtuous person."
Like most other things
in life, the virtues have to be learned. God may give them to us as gifts, but we should also cooperate with His grace and
do our part. When we know more about the virtues, we begin to love them more, and we realize the good that they bring about.
Little by little, we discover that it becomes easier for us to fulfil our duty of being good examples to others - good examples
of ordinary persons in the middle of the world, just like everybody else, who live their Christian vocation fully, in the
most natural way, so that others could see that the Christian life is a life full of joy, inspite of all the difficulties
that man encounters in this world.
For an Altar Server all these may seem a difficult task, but for those who trust in
God's grace, nothing is impossible. When the Holy Spirit reminded us in the Second Vatican Council of our duty to seek holiness
- a duty of all Christians - He was not presenting to us an unreachable ideal. Instead, He wants us to realize that we can
live the fullness of our Christian vocation without looking for the impossible, and without even searching for extraordinary
moments to live it.
Lastly, by living these virtues very well, the Altar Server prepares himself to receive many graces
from God - and among these graces, for a great number of the Servers, is the gift of vocation to the priesthood. This is one
of the greatest graces that he can ever receive, and aside from thanking God, he should also do his best to nurture it until
the time comes for him to formally undergo the necessary formation to become a priest.
