By Their Works: Profiles of Men of Faith
, profiling 65 Knights of Columbus whose lives span the entire 124-year history of the Order.
By Their Works is a lively, well-illustrated look at the lives of men whose lives and faith were powerfully influenced by their membership in the Knights of Columbus.
It is a high-quality "coffee table book" with dozens of photographs and other illustrations.
Written by Stephen Singular, it includes chapters on many well-known Knights, including Babe Ruth, John F. Kennedy, and Vince Lombardi. But it also includes many extraordinary but less well known Knights, such as Father Thomas Mulcrone and James Connolly, the first American to win an Olympic gold medal in modern times; Lt. Daniel O’Callaghan, a New York City firefighter who lost his life trying to rescue others at the World Trade Center on 9/11; and Sgt. Maj. Dan Daily, a two-time Medal of Honor winner once described by the commandant of the Marine Corps as "the outstanding Marine of all time."
Others profiled include six priests, Knights of Columbus and saints of the Catholic Church, who were martyred in Mexico during the Cristeros rebellion of the 1920s; Canadian Dr. Claude Brown, who organized Knights of Columbus hospitality huts for allied soldiers during World War II; and Chief Justice Hilario Davide of the Supreme Court of the Philippines.
In his forward to the book, Supreme Knight Carl A. Anderson wrote, "For all of the men profiled in this book, famous or not, religious faith was a formative part of their lives. And membership in the Knights of Columbus is a common thread that played a significant role in shaping their values, strengthening their faith, and inspiring their dedication to their fellow men."
