.- “A Civilization of Love,” written by the Supreme Knight of the Knights of Columbus, continues to be a NY Times bestseller for the 5th week in a row.

Carl Anderson, the head of the Knights of Columbus explained the success of the book to CNA saying that, “The strong sales of this book, which is based to a great extent on thoughts of Popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI, is a testament to the hunger people in this country have to answer the call of these two great popes to build a 'civilization of love.' It is my hope that this book will give its readers a means of putting the call of the Gospel into action in their own lives."

In an internet discussion with readers of his book, Anderson stated that the inspiration for the book came not only from the recent Popes, but also from the dedication of members of the Knights of Columbus. 

Another factor that seems to have boosted the book’s popularity is due to a recent shift in the view of Catholicism among those who describe themselves as practicing or non-practicing Catholics.

In an interview of over 1,000 adults in the U.S., the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion found much more positive views of the Church and Pope Benedict following the Pontiff’s April visit to America.

Not only did the Pope’s visit appear to raise the public opinion of the Church, but additionally, half of the people interviewed stated that they are more likely to lead a moral life and make family a bigger part of their lives.

Regarding the poll results, Anderson stated that Americans “responded very positively to the message of faith, hope and love that the Holy Father delivered throughout his visit.  It is now up to all of us in the Catholic community to walk through the door he has opened for us, and work together to build a civilization of love.”
