Dear Brother Knight, Christians in the Middle East continue to suffer, and in order to help them further, we need to do our part in convincing the U.S. Government to officially designate their persecution as genocide. Already many of our brother Knights have helped us give generously to humanitarian relief for those affected, with more than $8 million dollars raised. These funds have provided assistance in the form of food, clothing, shelter, general relief, education, religious instruction, medical care and much more.

In addition to the revolution in Mexico, the 1920s brought about the mass persecution of Catholics.
The missionaries were expelled from the country, Catholic seminaries and schools were closed, and the Church was banned from owning properties. Priests and lay people were ordered to renounce their faith in Jesus and the public; and by refusing they faced not only punishment but torture and death.

WASHINGTON — Beneath the pro-life/“pro-choice” divide in the U.S., there is a significant consensus favoring abortion restrictions, according to a new Marist poll commissioned by the Knights of Columbus.
“Although the issue is often a very polarizing issue politically, what we found is that it is not a polarized issue,” Barbara Carvalho, director of the Marist Poll, said at the National Press Club on Jan. 19, announcing the poll results. More than 1,600 adults nationwide were surveyed between Nov. 15 and 22 by the Marist Institute of Public Opinion. The margin of error for the poll was 2.4 percentage points.
“The debate is too often reduced to the percentage who identify with the labels ‘pro-life’ or ‘pro-choice,’” said Patrick Kelly of the Knights of Columbus and executive director of the St. John Paul II National Shrine.
