On October 31 Father Michael J. McGivney, Founder of the Knights of Columbus, will be beatified at 11:00 a.m. EDT in the Cathedral of St. Joseph in Hartford, Connecticut. It will be broadcast live on EWTN, Catholic TV and Salt + Light TV, and also live-streamed on the Knights of Columbus website, with Spanish, French and Polish interpretation available. 
A new short film titled Father Michael McGivney: An American Blessed will be broadcast on the Order’s YouTube and Facebook pages on October 25 at 8:00 p.m. EDT. The 20-minute documentary, produced by the Knights of Columbus, explores Father McGivney’s life, legacy and spiritual impact. DVDs of the film will also be made available for purchase at knightsgear.com 
Father McGivney’s priesthood could in no way be seen as a position of comfort and privilege. To the contrary, it was first and always a path of sacrifice and service. As Pope Francis reminds us in his letter, “This spirit of Christian solidarity marked in a special way the life and activity of your Founder, the Venerable Michael McGivney.” 
This Spirit of solidarity, this closeness to his people, marked the priesthood of Father McGivney and called him to a life of heroic virtue. As one of his contemporaries observed, the people in the neighborhood referred to him as a saint—and they meant it. 
The miracle attributed to his intercession is most powerful. A Knight and his wife learned that their unborn son had Down syndrome. Then they learned that he had a rare medical condition that would surely take his life. In their grief, the family turned to heaven for help. They—and so many other Knights of Columbus families—prayed to Father McGivney for a miracle. 
Four days after a pilgrimage to Fatima, where they asked McGivney to intercede, a doctor confirmed that their unborn son—without any medical intervention or explanation—was suddenly free from his fatal condition. 
Today, Mikey Schachle is 5 years old. Why did he receive this miracle? As St. John Paul II said on his visit to Fatima, “in the designs of Providence, there are no mere coincidences.” Is it a mere coincidence that Michael McGivney was the oldest of 13 children, while Michael Shachle is Keep the legacy of faith and ministry moving forward always—Remember St. Junípero Serra Parish in your will the youngest of 13 children? How can we not see in the circumstances of this miracle an affirmation of the vision and legacy of our Founder? 
With the beatification of its Founder, the Knights of Columbus are not only “approved,” they are “proved” to be a fraternal association capable of leading its members to holiness amid the world today. Men would do well to join our Council!

Sub Tuum Praesidium: “We turn to you for protection, Holy Mother of God. Listen to our prayers and help us in our needs. Save us from every danger, glorious and blessed Virgin.”

The prayer to St. Michael the Archangel: “St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of heavenly hosts, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan, and all evil spirits, who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.”

Remember the fact that we can make Spiritual Communions when the sacrament is not available. Use these or your own words: “Lord, I am not able to receive you now sacramentally. Enter into my heart. I embrace you as already there and unite myself to you. Never let me be separated from you.”

Remember that when the sacrament of penance is not available, one should present one’s sorrow directly to God and say a good Act of Contrition. Sins, including mortal ones, are forgiven. When opportunity arises, mention the latter in your next confession just to keep yourself honest. A very simple Act of Contrition that is found in the Rite of Penance is: “Jesus, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.”
