A Gift of Charity

This is the excerpt for a featured post.

Pope Francis received Supreme Knight Carl Anderson in a private audience at the Vatican on Oct. 6. At that audience, Anderson discussed with the Holy Father the Knights’ many initiatives including the Knights of Columbus’ work on behalf of Christians at risk in the Middle East. He also presented the earnings from the Knights’ Vicarius Christi Fund, in the amount of $1.6 million.

 

The proceeds are given annually to the pope for his personal charities, and since the fund’s inception in 1981, more than $59 million in earnings have been donated.
