Blessed Michael McGivney

Happy 139th Birthday to the Knight’s of Columbus, founded by Blessed Father Michael Joseph McGivney in my home town of New Haven CT.

He founded the KofC to assist the immigrant poor and their families, especially at the time of the loss of the family wage earner.

Blessed McGivney- pray for us that we may open our hearts to compassion for the immigrants that are at our Nation’s door.

May we greet them with the same love and care that you demonstrated as Christ commanded us in Matthew, 25:35 “For I was hungered, and ye gave me meat; I was thirsty and ye gave me drink, I was a stranger, and ye took me in.” Lest we also forget, the Book of Hebrews 13:2 “Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained Angels unawares.”

Amen
