Anderson says Knights’ efforts follow pope’s call to help world’s poor
ORLANDO, Fla. (CNS) — As an international fraternal organization, the Knights of Columbus is well-positioned to follow Pope Francis’ witness of “love for the sick, the suffering and the poor,” said Supreme Knight Carl A. Anderson.
That “extraordinary witness” and the pope’s admonition to all to cast aside indifference have “captured the imagination of the world,” he said Aug. 5 at the opening business session of the Knights’ 132nd Supreme Convention in Orlando.
“As Knights of Columbus, we are well-positioned to respond,” said Anderson.
He made the remarks in a lengthy annual report detailing the organization’s accomplishments and initiatives in 2013.
