This morning, the founder of the Knights of Columbus, Father Michael McGivney of New Haven, Connecticut, was declared Blessed Michael McGivney. We rejoice!
His Feast day is Aug 13.
Fittingly, McGivney died of cholera during a pandemic at age 38 in 1890, 130 years ago. In 2015, a baby was cured of life threatening condition called fetal hydrops while in utero, the miracle attributed to McGivney's intercession that confirmed his beautification.
