A new Italian edition of a book about the life of Father Michael McGivney tells the story of his extraordinary life as a parish priest, the inspiration that led him to found the Knights of Columbus, and the chronicle of his ongoing canonization process.
"Waves of Irish immigrants swelled the Catholic population in northeastern cities like New Haven, and waves of anti-Catholic sentiment greeted them," said Kevin Coyne, professor at the Columbia University School of Journalism, who is currently writing a book on the history of the Knights of Columbus.
"And that’s exactly what he became," Coyne stressed. "He was not the kind of priest who believed his ministry ended with Sunday Mass."
