This coming Sunday, Nov. 3, the Knights of Columbus-produced documentary on Pope Francis will again be aired on national television. It will be broadcast on CNBC at 6-7 p.m. Eastern (3-4 p.m. Pacific).
The film, Francis: The Pope from the New World, features interviews with Pope Francis’ friends and associates in Argentina, as well as with American commentators such as Supreme Knight Carl Anderson and members of the hierarchy, including Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Cardinal Sean O’Malley, Archbishop Charles Chaput and Archbishop José Gomez.
The world has been fascinated by our new Holy Father, but many people still do not fully know the man who is now our pope. This film introduces viewers to Jorge Mario Bergoglio — the man who became Pope Francis — and his life story, from his childhood and patronage of his local soccer team to his vocation and time as a priest, bishop and then cardinal archbishop of Buenos Aires.
As Knights, standing in solidarity with our Holy Father, it is not only important that we know him but that we help others to know him, and that we support him in the work of the New Evangelization. If we follow Pope Francis’ charitable witness, we have the opportunity to change the world.
If you have not already done so, please make the time to watch this inspiring documentary and invite others you know to also view it.

This seems to me like Catholic News. The coming of a broadcast. And from CNBC.
Perhaps the thread will bloom more after the broadcast? I’m looking forward to seeing it.
And critiquing it afterwards. Considered posting this on the Catholic Living Popular Media thread … but thought it more appropriate here. I’m good with whatever our moderators decide of course. I haven’t always been a CNBC fan (more lack of interest than ill will of any kind) but I’m happy they are doing this.
Disclaimer: Hope the treatment is devoid of any shots against Pope Benedict or the producers recounting every Church controversy (legal or doctrinal) since the Crusades. It being produced by the K of C makes me confident this will not be so though.
