Video: Fr. Knight's homily on on this date in 1994

Dear Friends,

In 1983 Fr. Emmanuel Charles McCarthy ( began The Annual Forty Day Fast for the Truth of Gospel Nonviolence, July 1 to August 9, whose purpose is to pray to the Father in the name of Jesus to bestow on the Churches of Christianity whatever extraordinary graces are needed so that they, individually and collectively, begin to teach and live in relation to the phenomena of violence and enmity what Jesus taught and lived in relation to violence and enmity. This yearly time of prayer and fasting has continued uninterrupted to this very year with people from across the planet having participated in it over the decades.

In 1990 Fr. McCarthy initiated the Annual July 16 Twenty-Four Hours Day of Prayer for Forgiveness and Protection with Our Lady of Mount Carmel at Trinity Site in the New Mexico desert. July 16 is the feast day of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, as well as, the day in 1945 when the first atomic bomb was detonated at Trinity Site. This yearly time of prayer also has continued uninterrupted to this very year.

For several years, Father Knight participated in the Prayer for Forgiveness and Protection at Trinity Site in NM. In 1994, he gave a homily at the Site, and it was recorded. You can watch it below. Below the video are photos from the Prayer Vigil in the 1990s.
