Archbishop Donald Wuerl has challenged the Knights of Columbus to be “champions of new evangelization.” It was an excellent, powerful address, echoing one of the key themes of Pope Benedict XVI. Good solid stuff. 

Just by the way, Phil made a good point yesterday, too. 

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Many Americans are angry about being ignored by those in charge. I feel the same about our church right now. Why have pro-abortion Knights been honored? Why hasn't anyone called them on this? It's hard to hear an Archbishop call the KofC to do what they should do but have not done. I watched the recitation of the millions that have been donated to many causes. That's laudable. But donating that money doesn't buy the right to ignore behavior of those who support the taking of life.

    If the KofC's were to be "Champions of new evangelization",wouldn't that make them more Catholic than the U.S. bishops? They can't have that now, can they?

    Diogenes: The theme of the New Evangelization is not original with Pope Benedict. It belongs to the same man who turned the tide on Jadot episcopal appointments. Here's a hint: he was Polish.
