Second Airing of New Documentary on Pope Francis

[This was sent recently to all Chaplains]

This coming Sunday, Nov. 3, the Knights of Columbus-produced documentary on Pope Francis will again be aired on national television. CNBC will broadcast the documentary at 6-7 p.m. Eastern (3-4 p.m. Pacific).

The film, Francis: The Pope from the New World, features interviews with Pope Francis' friends and associates in Argentina, as well as with American commentators such as Supreme Knight Carl Anderson and members of the hierarchy, including Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Cardinal Sean O'Malley, Archbishop Charles Chaput and Archbishop Jose Gomez. 

The world has been fascinated by our new Holy Father, but many people still do not fully know the man who is now our pope. This film introduces viewers to Jorge Mario Bergoglio - the man who became Pope Francis - and his life story, from his childhood and patronage of his local soccer team to his vocation and time as a priest, bishop and then cardinal archbishop of Buenos Aires.

If possible, please encourage your council members and parishioners to watch this documentary during your homily or following Masses on the weekend of Nov. 2 and 3.

As Knights, standing in solidarity with our Holy Father, it is not only important that we know him but that we help others to know him, and that we support him in the work of the New Evangelization. If we follow Pope Francis' charitable witness, we have the opportunity to change the world.

OCTOBER Recruiting with Knight Vision


Click here to download the October Membership newsletter from Supreme. 

 In a recent meeting with his staff, Supreme Knight Carl Anderson stated, “This is an organization that offers something good to every, single Catholic man”. If that is true, and I for one sincerely believe that it is, why then are we not getting that message out? Perhaps it is because we are too complacent, too comfortable with our council as it is. While we say we want new members, we are more comfortable with those men we know. In the end, our complacency allows us to slowly watch our council become smaller and ineffective until eventually we can’t fill all the Officer positions and we feel we have to close the doors. I fail to believe that any member wants that to happen to his council, so how do we change this fate?
