Remembering Fr. Michael McGivney
Tomorrow is the anniversary of the death of Fr. Michael McGivney, the saintly founder of the Knights of Columbus. He was declared venerable last year by Pope Benedict.
Father McGivney’s cause for canonization was opened in 1997 by the Archbishop of Hartford. Its diocesan phase has already been completed. The Congregation for the Causes of Saints at the Vatican is currently reviewing Father McGivney’s life and works and investigating two reported miracles attributed to his intercession.
