Supreme Knight Looks for Miracle from Philippines

During his visit to Manila in late April, Supreme Knight Carl A. Anderson said that he would welcome a miracle from the Philippines to help advance Father Michael J. McGivney to beatification. Calling Filipinos “a great people,” Anderson said that the faith and devotion in the Philippines make it very likely that a miracle will soon come from the Catholic country, once people begin to pray for the intercession of the Knights of Columbus’ founder.

The Supreme Knight made his third trip to the Philippines for the 9th Knights of Columbus Philippine National Convention, held at the Manila Hotel, April 27-29. On the first day, he engaged in a series of events designed to raise awareness of the Cause for Canonization of Father McGivney – at the convention’s Opening Mass in San Agustin Church in Intramuros, the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) headquarters, and the headquarters of KCFAPI, the Knights’ insurance program in the Philippines. (See adjoining article.)

“This is a great day for the Knights of Columbus, a great day for Father McGivney, a great day for the Philippine nation,” he said. “Today we recall the dedication and sacrifice of Father McGivney as we resolve to follow in his footsteps more closely in charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism.”

Father McGivney, who founded the Knights of Columbus in 1882 with a handful of laymen at St. Mary’s Church in New Haven, Conn., was declared Venerable by the Vatican in March 2008, when his heroic virtue was recognized by Pope Benedict XVI. A miracle attributed to his intercession is needed for him to be considered for beatification, and a subsequent miracle would be necessary for canonization. (Brian Caulfield)
