Over the years, Fr. McGivney has been honored with many titles: the model parish priest; a good Samaritan; protector of widows and orphans; apostle of Christian family life; and, of course, founder of the Knights of Columbus. However, his witness goes beyond titles. He was above all a testament to the power of spiritual brotherhood and charity.
