Pope thanks Knights of Columbus for support, public witness

Catholic World News - October 10, 2013

Pope Francis thanked the Knights of Columbus for “the unfailing support which your order has always given to the works of the Holy See,” during a meeting with K of C leader on October 10.

The Pope singled out the Vicarius Christi Fund as an “eloquent sign” of the organization’s support for the Pontiff and for the universal Church.

The Pope also praised the Knights for their prayers and their testimony to the faith. He commended the organization to the care of St. Joseph, “an admirable model of those manly virtues of quiet strength, integrity and fidelity which the Knights of Columbus are committed to preserving, cultivating and passing on to future generations of Catholic men.”
