April 2024

My Brother Knights,

Christ is Risen! He is risen indeed, Alleluia!

This Lent, I had the opportunity to spend some time in prayer with Blessed Michael McGivney. Thanks to the efforts of a few faith-filled folks and Worthy Grand Knight Bill Webb of Obadiah Council 7642, Kirkland, a First Class relic of Blessed McGivney found its way to western Washington. Everyone may have heard the call to prayer issued by Worthy State Deputy Greg Mahoney in March. On the eve of Holy Thursday, I joined many others that gathered at Mary Queen of Peace in Issaquah on a rainy night to pray and to venerate the First Class relic, asking for Blessed McGivney’s intercession for our loved ones. I also touched my rosary to the relic; thus, turning it into a 3rd class relic.

Immediately after leaving Issaquah to attend my home council’s monthly meeting where I shared my new 3rd class relic with everyone at my council. We also regularly pray the prayer for Beautification of Blessed McGivney. This time, I felt a connection with Blessed McGivney that seemed to stay with me for the rest of Holy Week. I am invigorated knowing that our order was founded by a saintly priest and hope that one day he is recognized by the Catholic church as one.

With God, all is possible.

Vivat Jesus! ¡Viva, Cristo Rey!
