The Order of Malta was successfully conferred last month, and three Sir Knights are now enlisted in the Order. My thanks to all the Sir Knights that contributed to the effort, making the evening a great success. We will now conclude the most important of the orders this month with the Order of the Temple.
At this month's conclave we will join with Gethsemane-DeMolay Commandery in conferring the Order of the Temple on our shared candidates, this time at the amazing asylum in Newtonville. I am confident that all Sir Knights remember with a special fondness, the grandeur, reverence and humility which accompanies receiving the Order and the special architecture of that building and more especially the Asylum, is in my mind the perfect atmosphere for such a prestigious event.
Built on a foundation of Truth and endowed with the Christian values of Faith Hope and Charity we will conclude the Orders with the Crown Jewel of the York Rite and faithfully confer the highest honor in our power to bestow. Remember It is our duty and our responsibility to convey the reverence and sanctity of this most precious accolade to the candidates. We do this by not only our command and veneration of the words within the Order itself, but also by the examples of our exemplary character both in and out of uniform.
To all other Sir Knights privy to this correspondence, you are welcome to support the Orders with your presence as we conclude the Orders and I encourage you to do so.
Donít forget our individual invitation challenge; to invite one Sir Knight to join us at our conclave for the following month. All Sir Knights are welcome.
P.S. Remember that when we share our lives, we Righteously affect the souls of others.
With fond Fraternal greetings,
S.K. Mark A. Rossi
