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

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.
