Arizona State Council Knights of Columbus - Fraternal Year 2020-2021
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.
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle,
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him we humbly pray;
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host,
by the Divine Power of God - cast into hell, satan and all the evil spirits,
who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.
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 venerable 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.
Glory be to the Father
O Mary, you always brighten our path as a sign of salvation and of hope.
We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick, who, at the Cross, took part in Jesus’ pain while remaining steadfast in faith. O loving Mother, you know what we need, and we are confident you will provide for us as at Cana in Galilee. Intercede for us with your Son Jesus, the Divine Physician, for those who have fallen ill, for those who are vulnerable, and for those who have died. Intercede also for those charged with protecting the health and safety of others and for those who are tending to the sick and seeking a cure. Help us, O Mother of Divine Love, to conform to the will of the Father and to do as we are told by Jesus, who took upon himself our sufferings and carried our sorrows, so as to lead us, through the Cross, to the glory of the Resurrection. Amen. Under thy protection we seek refuge,
O Holy Mother of God. In our needs, despise not our petitions, but deliver us always from all dangers, O glorious and blessed Virgin. Amen.
