Prayer for the Canonization of
Father Michael J. McGivney
God, our Father, protector of the poor and
defender of the widow and orphan, you called
your priest, Father Michael J. McGivney, to
be an apostle of Christian family life and to
lead the young to the generous service of their
neighbor. Through the example of his life and
virtue may we follow your Son, Jesus Christ,
more closely, fulfilling his commandment of
charity and building up his Body which is the
Church. Let the inspiration of your servant
prompt us to greater confidence in your love
so that we may continue his work of caring
for the needy and the outcast. We humbly
ask that you glorify your venerable servant
Father Michael J. McGivney on earth
according to the design of your holy will.
Through his intercession, grant the favor I
now present (here make your request).
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Our Father Hail Mary Glory be to the Father
Dear Brother Knights:
On Thursday, November 28th, once again our nation will pause from its hectic way of life to celebrate an American Tradition, Thanksgiving Day. Thanksgiving Day is a time for families and friends to enjoy getting together who what is often a long vacation weekend. It's also a time to stop and reflect on the many blessings we have in our lives, the blessings that we often take for granted.
In the Old Testament from the Book of Psalm, it says: "it is good to give thanks to the Lord.... God will always continue to provide for us." All we must do is to use the blessings He gives us wisely in our lives and we will always find the peace and happiness we wish to have each day. I encourage all of you to attend the celebration of the Mass that day as we give thanks for the blessings we received and for the blessings we still need in our lives.
On Sunday, December 1st, the Church begins the season of Advent. Advent means "Christ is Coming!" It's that special season of the year when we prepare for the Lord's coming. Not just as He came into the world nearly 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem, but rather how is coming into our lives today, here and now in the every facet of our lives. Advent is a time of "renewal." We all need to look inside ourselves and see how we can "spiritually" better ourselves. One way we can use at this special time is that of the Sacrament of Penance. Taking steps towards healing old relationships, or helping others by volunteering your talents in helping the less fortunate during time of the year. There are so many ways that we can make this Advent the most rewarding one we have ever lived, one that will surely prepare us for a blessed and Holy Christmas.
Wishing you and your loved ones a very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy New Year!
