The Knights of Columbus is now offering a 2023 version of its Vivat Jesus Spiritual Planner, a pocket-sized prayer book and calendar for the year 2023. This spiritual planner is designed to help men develop and maintain a daily prayer routine while also incorporating traditional Catholic prayers and devotions throughout the year for themselves and their families. In 2022, the Knights of Columbus introduced this unique spiritual resource for men to deepen their prayer lives. Vivat Jesus for 2023 has been updated and expanded and is available in English and Spanish.
Vivat Jesus includes:
- Suggested daily prayer plans and practices
- Space to build your personalized daily prayer routine for each month
- Monthly calendars with liturgical feasts indicated
- Suggested devotions and prayers for each month
- Collection of prayers for eucharistic devotion, expanded for 2023 in support of the National Eucharistic Revival
- Guides to spiritual practices such as the Daily Examen and Lectio Divina
- Additional prayers and catechetical sections
- A brief section on the life of Blessed Michael McGivney
Additionally, each copy contains a special message from Knights of Columbus Supreme Knight Patrick Kelly, titled “What it Means to be a Knight.” Vivat Jesus also includes monthly prayer challenges from Supreme Chaplain Archbishop William E. Lori of Baltimore, who was recently elected Vice President of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB).
