2013-08-09

Pope Francis issued a message to the Knights of Columbus in light of their 131th Supreme Convention in San Antonio, Texas.

The letter is directed to Carl A. Anderson, who serves as the Supreme Knight. In it, the Pope expressed his appreciation for the "ideals of faith and fraternity embodied by the Order, its commitment to the Church’s mission, and the many works of charity and evangelical witness.” 

Pope Francis also highlighted the role the Knights of Columbus play in helping Catholics as "protectors of creation, protectors of God’s plan inscribed in nature, protectors of one another and of the environment.”

He urged each Knight to "bear witness to the authentic nature of marriage and the family, the sanctity and inviolable dignity of human life, and the beauty and truth of human sexuality.”

He also expressed his gratitude for the clear example of Faith the Knights of Columbus show each day.
