The Knights of the Holy Eucharist

in-adoration1Serving at the Shrine of the Most Blessed
Sacrament in Hanceville, Alabama was our
"First Mission" from July 25, 1998 until
August 17, 2016.
The Knights were founded by Mother Mary Angelica of the Annunciation, P.C.P.A., on July 25, 1998, feast day of St. James. The spirit of St. Francis, the “Knight-Errant of Assisi,” became a role model for the new Knights; this spirit was demonstrated by St. Francis’ deep sense of faith, fiery enthusiasm for Christ, and readiness to battle for His kingdom on earth.

The Knights of the Holy Eucharist are single Catholic men seeking to follow Christ more closely through a life lived in community and dedicated to the service of God. The primary focus of this service is the fostering of reverent devotion to Our Lord in the Most Blessed Sacrament. Pope Saint John Paul II states that the Church “draws her life from the Eucharist”. 

“The Knight Shalt Be a Man of Honor and a Man of Prayer…”

It is the mission of the Knights to spread authentic devotion to Christ really, truly and substantially present in the Eucharist. They should encourage the Christian faithful to participate in Eucharistic adoration, which by its very nature will increase reverence. All efforts should be made through whatever means are available to promote faith in the Real Presence of our Eucharistic King.

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.

Heritage Coat of Arms

heritage-coatofarms-380
The Coat of Arms was designed by Mother Angelica. The shield contains four emblems: wheat, a fleur de lis, a flame, and a book inscribed with the word “veritas.” The wheat represents the Holy Eucharist, Whom the Knights have pledged themselves to adore, protect, and defend.

The fleur de lis represents the Blessed Virgin Mary under whose special patronage the Knights have placed themselves. The flame is a symbol of the fire of charity which is the motivation behind the Knights’ service of God and the Church.

Finally, “veritas” is Latin for “truth” and signifies that the Knights seek always to bear witness to the truth in both word and deed. Blue and gold are papal colors and represent the Knights’ fidelity to Holy Mother Church.

Year of Faith Coat of Arms

khe-coa-web-380
Our Franciscan "Year of Faith" Blazon, or coat of arms, is inspired by St Francis' great simplicity and the humility which triumphs over the enemy, pride, within his heart. It borrows from our heritage coat of arms designed by Mother Angelica.

The escutcheon, or shield shape, is of French origin and common in the 11th and 12th Century of St. Francis' day throughout Umbria.

The black center pillar is derived from the Templar Cross and alludes to two swords coming together in defense of the Temple of Jerusalem.

At its base, is the Byzantine double cross, also known as the Patriarch's cross or the Cross of Lorraine (France).  The Patriarch of Jerusalem handed the Knights of the First Crusade the use of this cross in their struggle to open the gates of Jerusalem to Christian pilgrims in 1099.
