News for Knights of Columbus
VOLUME 40 │ NUMBER 50 │ DEC. 12, 2022
In a message to Knights yesterday on the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Supreme Knight Patrick Kelly announced a 9-year novena of preparation for the 500th anniversary of the appearances of the Virgin Mary to St. Juan Diego in 1531. To begin these preparations, the Knights of Columbus has released a short film highlighting ways that Our Lady draws us closer to her Son in the Holy Eucharist. 
St. Juan Diego Cuauhtlatoatzin displays the miraculous image of Our Lady of Guadalupe on his tilma in this painting by artist Antonella Cappuccio, commissioned by the Knights of Columbus in 2009.
Our Lady of Guadalupe Leads Us to the EucharistThe Virgin of Guadalupe is invoked as not only the patroness of the Americas and the unborn, but also of the Knights of Columbus. Coinciding with the National Eucharistic Revival and Dec. 12 feast day, the Knights of Columbus has just released a new short film, Our Lady of Guadalupe: Woman of the Eucharist.“This powerful and moving film shows how Catholics encounter Christ through prayer and devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe,” said Supreme Knight Patrick Kelly. “Mary was completely focused on Our Lord with ever greater devotion. To imitate her and to be devoted to her as Mother of our Lord and our mother is a sure way to greater love of the eucharistic Lord, who gave up his life for the world.” WATCH NOW | READ MORE
