Could this be the replacement for the Knights of Columbus?

Cardinal Burke heading the Holy League of Men.

At this particular moment in time, the Church finds itself in a similar situation to that of the Church in the late Sixteenth Century. However, instead of a physical enemy on the horizon, the Church and the family (the domestic Church) are threatened daily by relativism, secularism, impurity, and confusion regarding Church teaching. The battle today “is not against human forces but against the principalities and powers, the rulers of this world of darkness, the evil spirits in the heavens” (Ephesians 6: 10-12).

In response, faithful Catholics are longing to come together to combat these preternatural forces of evil. These men need something that will bring them together so that they can all work toward a common goal. The goal is to be in the state of grace, and that is why a new Holy League is being formed. Without this spiritual armor, we are naked on the battlefield, vulnerable to every tactic of the devil. Thus, the first move in spiritual warfare is to prepare for battle; to, quite literally, “Put on Christ!”

Sounds more like the Holy Name Society, my Dad was in that, as I recall one of the SUNDAY Masses was dedicated to their members and after they'd meet. I'd love to see this again but it will only work with the involvement of the Pastors.

Have to admit I was really uplifted till I saw the picture of Francis...sorry my bad. This is a really wonderful gift and I'll pray very much for the men who undertake the call.

That's a thought, as the KofC seems to be devolving into a "good ole boy" club "Dolan style". I hope the KofC turns itself around.
