A Letter to Pope Francis from Supreme Knight Anderson
Most Holy Father:
On behalf of the nearly 2 million members of the Knights of Columbus throughout the world, and in a personal way, I write to convey warmest wishes on the joyful occasion of the 50th anniversary of your ordination to the sacred priesthood of Jesus Christ on 13 December.
The Knights of Columbus joins all the faithful in prayer, asking Almighty God to abundantly bless Your Holiness and your ministry among His people.
In a half-century of priesthood, you have lived and ministered for the greater glory of God while also embodying the Jesuit charism of care and concern for the least among us. After many years of priestly ministry as alter Christus, Your Holiness was called also to serve as Christ’s Vicar here on earth. As you guide the Church into the future, be assured of our prayers for your ministry and of our sincere love for you and for the Church.
May Our Lady of Guadalupe, the great Star of the New Evangelization, always guide and protect Your Holiness in your Petrine ministry.
Asking your Apostolic Blessing and prayers, I remain
Carl A. Anderson
