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 to return all Brother Knights and/or family members on the prayer list back to good health and fortune. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Please recite the following: Our Father - Hail Mary - Glory be to the Father

Why were the Knights of Columbus formed?

In 1882 the catholic men in America were being led astray by other non-catholic men's groups , this coupled with the fact that men had a high risk of being killed on the job, led Father Michael J. McGivney to conceive of a Catholic fraternal order of men who followed the teachings of the Church and whose Wives and Families would be provided for in the case of the untimely death of a Knight of Columbus.
