Mary Queen of Knights

Our Lady, Queen of the Knights, bless all the activities of our Order. Keep us true to our pledge, to extend the kingship of thy divine son on earth. Through Thine intercession, win for us the grace, ever to exemplify in our public and private lives, the virtues that should characterize those especially dedicated to the service of the heavenly court. Make us always aware that as your Knights, we are constantly observed, our faith judged, and our Order appreciated. Accept, O Mary, this renewed pledge of fealty and devotion, of Thy Servants, the Knights of Columbus.  Amen

Prayer for the Canonization of
Father Michael J. McGivney

God, our Father, protector of the poor and defender of the widow and orphan, you called your priest, Father Michael J. McGivney, to be an apostle of Christian family life and to lead the young to the generous service of their neighbor. Through the example of his life and virtue may we follow your Son, Jesus Christ, more closely, fulfilling his commandment of charity and building up his Body which is the Church. Let the inspiration of your servant prompt us to greater confidence in your love so that we may continue his work of caring for the needy and the outcast. We humbly ask that you glorify your servant Father Michael J. McGivney on earth according to the design of your holy will. Through his intercession, grant the favor I now present (here make your request). Through Christ our Lord. Amen. Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be.

Pledge of Re-commitment

I thank God today for the gift of my life,
and for the lives of my brothers and sisters.
I know I am responsible for the unborn
who cannot speak for themselves.
I know that the most serious tragedy of our day
is the tragedy of abortion.
Today I commit myself
Never to be silent,
Never to be passive,
Never to be forgetful of the unborn.
I commit myself to be active in the pro-life movement,
and Never to stop defending life
until all my brothers and sisters are protected,
and our nation once again becomes
a nation with liberty and justice
not just for some, but for all.

Knights of Columbus Prayer

O Almighty and eternal God, Lord of the universe, sustain us, we beseech Thee, o’er the course of “Life’s Tempestuous Sea.” Keep us, we pray Thee, secure within the barque of Peter, ever trustful of Christ and his vicars to guide us along the ways of peace and prosperity. May Jesus, our Savior, preserve us in the unity of the Holy Faith and confirm our hopes of sharing its treasures with America.
Send forth the power and love of the Holy Spirit, that we may be blessed in our efforts to set forth Thy glory in this land under the patronage of Mary’s Immaculate Conception.
Let our Fraternity flourish in justice and charity and give eternal praise and glory to the Most Holy Trinity. Be mindful of each of our brothers, departed, and receive them into the heaven of eternal peace. Amen.
