We have a new American Saint! He will be declared beatified soon in Connecticut,

His name is Father Michael McGivney, a diocesan priest and Founder of The Knights of Columbus, born on August 12, 1852 at Waterbury (USA) and died at Thomaston (USA) on August 14, 1890.

Yesterday Pope Francis has acknowledged the miracle attributed to the intercession of the soon-to-be-Beatified.

The miracle was about an unborn child who was healed in uterus five years ago.

Just to be clear, the approval of this miracle permits him to be declared Blessed.

Once that happens, another miracle is needed before his canonization can be approved.

Wow, I never realized how he died:
...died of pneumonia on August 14, 1890— two days after his 38th birthday – after falling ill amid a pandemic. Recent scientific evidence indicates that, that pandemic – like the current one – may have been caused by a coronavirus. :shock:

Pope Francis approved a miracle attributed to the intercession of Fr. Michael J. McGivney Wednesday, paving the way for the beatification of the founder of the Knights of Columbus.

During a May 26 meeting with Cardinal Angelo Becciu, the prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, the pope authorized the congregation to issue a decree recognizing the miracle.

McGivney founded the Knights of Columbus in 1882. Today it is the world’s largest Catholic fraternal service organization, with nearly two million members in more than a dozen countries.

Born in Waterbury, Connecticut, in 1852, McGivney played a critical role in the growth of the Church in the United States in the latter part of the 19th century. After his ordination in Baltimore in 1877, he served a largely Irish-American and immigrant community in New Haven.

Amid an anti-Catholic climate, he established the Knights to provide spiritual aid to Catholic men and financial help for families that had lost their breadwinner.

A press release from the Knights of Columbus May 27 said the miracle recognized by Pope Francis involved an unborn child in the United States who was healed in utero of a life-threatening condition in 2015 after his family prayed to McGivney.

It added that a date would be set soon for the beatification Mass, which will take place in Connecticut.

There is a book you’d like to read: Parish Priest - Father Michael McGivney and American Catholicism by Douglas Brinkley and Julie M. Fenster.

This book predicts that “Father Michael McGivney would be the first American-born parish priest to be canonized” (page 207). We shall see...
