Pope Francis thanked the Knights of Columbus for being in solidarity with him, something he said is seen not only in the money they give for his charities, but also in their prayers, sacrifices and charitable activities.

“May prayer, witness to the faith and concern for our brothers and sisters in need always be the pillars supporting your work, both individually and corporately,” the pope said Oct. 10 during a meeting with 80 officers and members of the board of directors of the Knights of Columbus.
