Brother Knights,

We wanted to share an interesting article by an exorcist who accounts for Bl. McGivney’s intercession against demons, notably one that had ties to Freemasonry. We share this quote:

Upon reflection, we were not surprised that Fr. McGivney was so effective against demons of freemasonry, since he had dedicated his life to an alternative: the Knights of Columbus.

Supreme Knight Asks All Knights to Fast for an End to Abortion Tomorrow Friday May 13

Brother Knights, 

In light of the leak of the Supreme Court’s draft decision that may overturn Roe vs. Wade, the US Bishops are calling for a day of fasting and prayer tomorrow Friday May 13. This is also the 105th anniversary of Our Lady’s appearance to the three children at Fatima. Supreme Knight Kelly is asking all Knights to participate and join him in fasting and prayer. See his message below.

Vivat Jesus,

Dear Brother Knights:

In recent days, a leak revealed an early draft opinion in the case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization which, if handed down as the court’s final majority opinion, would overturn Roe v. Wade. This has led to the vandalism of churches and pregnancy resource centers, the disruption of church services and the attempted intimidation of Supreme Court justices. The United States Senate also attempted to pass legislation that would cancel state pro-life laws and expand abortion throughout the United States — all without meaningful conscience protections for medical professionals and Catholic hospitals. This legislation failed to advance due to millions of Americans, like you, contacting their Senators to voice opposition to it.

In response to all these events, the chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, Archbishop José Gomez, and our own supreme chaplain, Archbishop William Lori, chairman of the USCCB Committee on Pro-Life Activities, have asked all Catholics around the country to join in fasting and praying the rosary on Friday, May 13, the memorial of Our Lady of Fatima. Specifically, they have asked us to offer our prayers and fasting for the following intentions:

• For our nation, for the integrity of our judicial system, and that all branches of government be dedicated to seeking the common good and protecting the dignity and rights of the human person, from conception to natural death.

• For the overturning of Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey in the Supreme Court’s final decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.

• For the conversion of the hearts and minds of those who advocate for abortion.

• For a new commitment to building an America where children are welcomed, cherished, and cared for; where mothers and fathers are encouraged and strengthened; and where marriage and the family are recognized and supported as the true foundations of a healthy and flourishing society.

• For Our Blessed Mother’s intercession and guidance as the Church continues to walk with mothers and families in need, continues to promote alternatives to abortion, and seeks to create a culture of life. 

Please join me and my family in prayer and fasting for these intentions tomorrow, on the feast of Our Lady of Fatima, and may Our Lady, her blessed spouse St. Joseph, and Blessed Michael McGivney, intercede for us and our nation.

Fraternally,
Patrick E. Kelly
Supreme Knight

Happy 140th Anniversary for the Knights of Columbus

Brother Knights,

We just wanted to wish members of our network and all brother Knights, happy 140th anniversary to the Knights of Columbus. For it was on this day, March 29, 1882, that Bl. Michael McGivney founded the Order that has been so critical to the Catholic Church in the United States, and across many other countries. 

To learn more about the history of the Knights of Columbus please visit: https://www.kofc.org/en/who-we-are/our-history/founding-and-early-acts.html

Blessed McGivney, pray for us! 

Vivat Jesus!

Novena for the Consecreation of Russia (March 16 - 24)

Brother Knights,

As many have heard, Pope Francis has agreed to consecrate Russia (and Ukraine) to the Immaculate Heart of Mary at 12 noon Eastern on Friday March 25, the feast of the Annunciation.  This came at the request of the Ukrainian bishops who requested it be done as Our Lady of Fatima requested.  As you can imagine, there may be spiritual obstacles thrown up to prevent the Holy Father in offering the consecration, and properly. 

To counter this, we share a prayer which Bishop Athanasius Schneider penned to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, imploring her to assist in obtaining the graces for Pope Francis to consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

If we may suggest, members of our network, fellow Knights, and their families may consider praying this prayer for 9 days, beginning today Wednesday  March 16, and concluding Thursday March 24, the feast of St. Gabriel, the day prior to the Annunciation.  The prayer is as followed:

Prayer for the Holy Father to Consecrate Russia

O Immaculate Heart of Mary, you are the holy Mother of God and our tender Mother. Look upon the distress in which the Church and the whole of humanity are living because of the spread of materialism and the persecution of the Church. In Fatima, you warned against these errors, as you spoke about the errors of Russia. You are the Mediatrix of all graces. Implore your Divine Son to grant this special grace for the Pope: that he might consecrate Russia to your Immaculate Heart, so that Russia will be converted, a period of peace will be granted to the world, and your Immaculate Heart will triumph, through an authentic renewal of the Church in the splendor of the purity of the Catholic Faith, of the sacredness of Divine worship and of the holiness of the Christian life. O Queen of the Holy Rosary and our sweet Mother, turn your merciful eyes to us and graciously hear this our trusting prayer. Amen.

+ Athanasius Schneider, Auxiliary Bishop of the archdiocese of Saint Mary in Astana

One can also find it on Bishop Schneider’s Confraternity of Fatima website (which we encourage all to join in): https://www.livefatima.io/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/PrayerCard_09.pdf

The message of Fatima is something many members of our network are devoted to, and the closing prayers after Low Mass (Leonine prayers) since 1930 were (and still offered) for conversion of Russia.
