Introduction to Our Charisms

into-knights-charismsLife is a journey through time, but not only through time. It is also, for each soul, a journey from what a man is to what God intends him to be. For every Christian this presents a challenge. Every man who calls himself a Christian must seek to become like Christ. Some among them, however, seek not only to follow Jesus, but to follow Him with total dedication.

The Knights are men who have taken up the challenge of discipleship with generosity and totality. A Knight is one elevated by a King to a position of special trust, service and honor. He is one who has made the interests of his King his own. He serves and protects his Lord not for profit, but from the kind of selfless loyalty that can only be called noble.

Jesus is the Eucharistic King whom the Knights have pledged themselves to serve and to defend. As loyal Knights, they willingly lay down their lives not only for Him, but also for all that is His. It is for this reason that their protection and service extends to His holy Temple.

St. Francis of Assisi was a man with a chivalrous heart. When he loved, he loved without reservation. As a young man he was enthralled with the things of the world, but once he saw beyond them to the One Priceless Pearl, he was satisfied with nothing less than Its possession. The Knights claim the poor man of Assisi as a special patron of their community and seek to live out his motto, “My God and my All.”

 

Our Charism of Adoration

thumb francis-christ-experiencePerhaps of all the aspects of Christianity that are incomprehensible to the modern age, the concept of adoration is the most foreign. Considering the fact that the most intelligent and gifted of all the angels (Lucifer—his name means “light bearer”) did not see the point, this is not surprising. Adoration, understood in its proper sense, is a response that can only be made to the Most High and Uncreated Being. It is the response of the creature to his Creator, of the finite to the Infinite, of the impotent to the Omnipotent. By its very nature, adoration can only spring forth in a humble heart, since the truly humble heart is the one that has perceived the indescribable gulf that exists between the nature of God and the nature of all else that is, most especially itself.

Service to the Church

Rule[Hospitality +] “Anyone who welcomes a prophet will have a prophet’s reward” (Matthew 10:41). The promise that Our Lord makes is a startling one. How can it be that so generous a reward is given for so small a service? Such are the wages of the Kingdom of Heaven.

Within those words, however, is hidden something profound but easily overlooked. The prophet must be received because he is a prophet, not because a reward is promised. To open one’s home or one’s heart to those sent by God is to receive God Himself. To serve the good because it is good is to become good. And to be good is a reward in itself.

Pope Pius XII on August 15, 1954 delegated Cardinal Ciriaci to issue a letter on modesty. It is worth recounting this little gem. "Everyone knows that during the summer months particularly, things ...
