Knights Hospitaller looking for recruits

****

The Knights Hospitaller is a Christian organization that began as an Amalfitan hospital founded in Jerusalem in 1080 to provide care for poor, sick or injured pilgrims to the Holy Land. After the Western Christian reconquest of Jerusalem in 1099 during the First Crusade it became a religious/military order under its own charter, and was charged with the care and defense of the Holy Land. Following the conquest of the Holy Land by I slamic forces, the Order operated from Rhodes, over which it was sovereign, and later from Malta where it administered a vassal state under the Spanish viceroy of Sicily. When Napoleon captured Malta in 1798 the Knights ceased to be associated with any one place, and gave rise to their present successor, the Sovereign Military Order of Malta.

****

It shall be our mission to care for the poor, the needy, the defenseless, for the widow and the orphan, the weak and the oppressed. It shall fall to us to befriend the stranger in a strange land, be he Christian or be he other, so long as he is well disposed to Holy Mother Church. It is our part to befriend and protect others of The Faith too weak to defend themselves, and to protect those of whatever faith subject to unjust persecution and attack. It falls to our part to feed the hungry and clothe the naked, heal the sick and provide enlightenment to the ignorant, and in all things to be a friend to man.
