a widespread communist persecution breaking out against the Church in Nicaragua
(and elsewhere), we wanted to encourage Knights, Councils and others in our network
to consider asking their priests to offer a votive “Mass for the Defense of
the Church” this Friday August 26.
this Friday August 26 is a Feria day, a votive Mass (1962) can be offered for
just these important situations and intentions.
The vestments are traditionally purple/violet and the Mass would not
displace the actual intention scheduled at the parish for that Mass.
many know, the Knights have long championed the Church’s liberty and were key
in helping to support the Mexican Catholics during Calles’ persecution in the
1920s – one that gave many martyrs including six Knights:
- More recently,
the Knights are also helping to support Catholics in Iraq, who were
persecuted by ISIS: https://www.kofc.org/en/news-room/columbia/2018/september/lifeline-for-persecuted-christians.html
your priest is able to offer this votive Traditional Latin Mass (found in the
1962 Missal), the laity propers can be found at this parish’s website: http://www.saintrosequincy.org/propers/votive-mass-defense.pdf
Additional upcoming Feria days to offer Masses are September 6, 7, and 13, 20 and 26.
Michael McGivney and the Mexican martyrs, pray for us!

Today, Saturday August 13, is the feast day of Knights founder, Blessed Michael McGivney.
His feast day falls between his date of birth, August 12, 1852, and his date of death, August 14, 1890.
We encourage Knights to try and attend a Traditional Latin Mass today. Although he is not on the 1962 calendar, August 13 is a ferial day and a votive Mass for Any Necessity can be offered for Blessed Michael's canonization.
To learn more about Blessed Michael, the Knights of Columbus has set up a resource page:

For those Knights in Central New Jersey, please see the below traditional 1962 liturgies that will be occurring this Friday and Saturday to commemorate the feast of Blessed McGivney.
Note: The Mass is of the Dominican Rite, which is the Dominican Order's version of the Traditional Latin Mass of 1962 - offered by a Dominican priest.

Many families - including Knights - have been affected by a stillborn or miscarriage. It is a difficult, sorrowful, and often traumatic time for the parents and is only compounded by having to make for the funeral arrangements, including the purchase of a small casket.
Several Knights in our Network have also suffered in these circumstances and were inspired to act to help lessen the burden on other families who experience a stillborn or miscarriage.
After reading a January 2019 Knights of Columbus online article, several Knights of the Traditional Knights Latin Mass Network decided to develop a manual on how Knights or others (with little woodworking experience) can build small and dignified caskets and provide them free of charge to parents who recently suffered from a stillborn birth or miscarriage.
This was a collaborative project of Knights across several councils within our Network working together - demonstrating the potential of being a member of the Traditional Knights Latin Mass Network. This also ties into our mission as many parents of babies who are stillborn or miscarried have requested a Mass of the Angels. This is a special Mass which can be said in the Traditional Latin Rite for babies who died with the grace of baptism.
To learn more see link below.
Challenge: We also challenge Knights to use the manual and try to build one.
The manual can also be found on our webpage: https://www.latinmassknights.org/p/caskets-for-stillborns.html
