Today, August 14, is the 130th anniversary of Venerable Fr. Michael J. McGivney's passing into eternal life. He will be beatified October 31 in Hartford, Connecticut.
The Knights just released a new video about the miracle surrounding his beatification: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NwodMNxWS1I&feature=youtu.be and passed a resolution at the 138th Supreme Convention regarding Fr. McGivney’s miracle:
Let us continue to pray the prayer for his canonization:
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
Deus qui et pater noster et protector pauperum orphanos atque viduas defendis, sacerdotem tuum Patrem Michaelem apostolum familiae Christinae vocasti et ductorem iuvenum proposuisti ut proximis inservirent. Per eius imitationem et virtutem, fac ut proxime sequamur filium tuum Jesum Christum caritatis mandatum perficientes ut Corpus eius quod est Ecclesia aedificetur.
Inspirati servi tui exemplo et amore tuo prompti exsequamur confidentius opera caritatis quibus corroborentur et curentur egentes et derelicti. Suppliciter exoramus ut super terra et secundum sanctam voluntatem tuam, venerabilem servum glorifices Patrem Michaelem J. McGivney. Per intercessionem eius, da ut quod praesens peto (______) fiat, per Christum Dominum Nostrum.
Pater Noster, Ave Maria, Gloria Patri…
