The Knights of Columbus' new documentary on the life of Pope Francis and his election to the papacy will be available on DVD starting Nov. 20.
"This documentary arrives as the world realizes that a very special man has assumed the leadership of the Catholic Church, and this begins – but does not end – with his gestures of humility and care for everyone," said Supreme Knight Carl Anderson of the Knights of Columbus, an executive producer of the documentary.
"Still, what remains largely unknown to the public are many details of Pope Francis' life, the work he has done and the ways in which he has defended the voiceless and Catholic principles. This documentary delves into those stories," Anderson said.
The hour-long documentary, "Francis: The Pope From the New World," has been broadcast on the Fox Business Network and CNBC.
