Our Founder’s First Feast Day

August 13, 2021

The following is a message from our Supreme Knight.

Brother Knights,

Today is a historic day for the Knights of Columbus and for the
Catholic Church — it is the first feast day of our Founder, Blessed
Michael McGivney.

This is a day of celebration, reflection, and prayer. The Church has
chosen August 13 to honor our Founder because it falls one day after
the anniversary of his birth and one day before the anniversary of his
death, when he entered eternal life. During the 38 years in between,
Father McGivney answered God’s call to defend the family and the
faith, most notably by founding the Knights of Columbus. In the words
of our Supreme Convention theme, which was drawn from the Apostolic
Letter of Pope Francis on St. Joseph, our Founder truly embodied
“creative courage” in service to God — and his example should inspire
us all to live boldly in faith.

The Papal Message to the Supreme Convention observed that “The joyful
event of Father McGivney’s beatification, celebrated this past year in
Hartford marked a significant milestone in [the Orders]
distinguished history and represents a summons to renewed fidelity to
the founding principles of faith, fraternity, and charitable assistance
to those in need.”

For many years, Knights and our families have prayed for our Founder’s
intercession. His presence in heaven was confirmed by the miraculous
healing of an unborn child, the son of a brother Knight. That miracle
paved the way for Father McGivney’s beatification last October when
he was raised to the honors of the altar. Now, we hope and pray for a
second miracle, so that we may soon call Father McGivney a saint.

August 13 will be a special day for the Knights of Columbus going
forward. In the new opening prayer written for Masses honoring our
Founder, we will hear the celebrant ask our Lord to grant that, like
Blessed Michael, “we too may become vessels of mercy in our day and so
enter into our heavenly inheritance.” This prayer is meant for every
Knight, for in these words we find our life’s work.

On this blessed day, I offer this prayer and pledge to work alongside
you — creatively building up the Knights of Columbus, and courageously
defending the family and the faith. And together with you, I give
thanks to God for the good work He began in our Founder and continues
in us.

Blessed Michael McGivney, pray for us! Happy Feast Day!
