- He must be generous in giving;

Primitive Rule and Precepts
The Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and of the Temple of Solomon, Founded in 1119 AD:
PRIOR READS OUT AT ALTAR
- The Temple and Service thereof
“Remember, brethren, that we are the descendants of the ‘Poor Fellow Soldiers of Christ’ who first held their meetings in the precincts of the Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem.
We must contemplate the word and meaning of the Temple. Remember also that we are but rough stones and must continuously work to build our own Temple with the smooth stones within us.”
- The Love of Meditation
“Recognise with gladness that we are neither lost, nor strangers to God, but one of His good creatures, and in our Temple we shall meet people from many nations and denominations.
There is no shame in seeking God; forget not when we ponder that God’s Temple is our own being. God will not look for us, but we first must seek Him. Each day, time must be put aside for meditation and prayers for our Order and its work.”
“The principles of St. Bernard of Clairvaux’s life are still valid today. We must care for mind, body and soul. Work happily, but with humility and at all times honour your fellow man.” Care not for worldly goods.”
- Knightly Combat
“Our white garments decorated with the Blood Red Cross remind each of us that we must be capable of making sacrifices. Do not strive for worldly wealth—perhaps tomorrow we might have to give account of ourselves.
We shall not know, until it is too late, for excuses are not acceptable to the Greatest Being, Almighty God.”
“Each day we must help our brethren for whom we are responsible, for one day God will say, ‘Where is thy Brother?’
If you want to stay in the background you can join the Order as an affiliate member. Affiliate members plays an important role. If you wish to join as an affiliate member, please click on the link below:
Accept no reward, always be a pillar of the Temple, for all the Order holds for us is the opportunity to flee the sins of the world, to live charitably, to be penitent, and above all, to be the servant of Almighty God.”
As true Templars, we must always be prepared for battle in either the temporal or spiritual realms. Our oaths require moral courage and our way of life demands dedication to our knightly ideals.
The true knight is, of course, humble before the Lord and his fellow man. If a true Templar would boast about anything, he boasts in our Lord!
Are YOU prepared now to take the sacred and irrevocable Oath to become a Knight of the Temple - a Militum Christi (A soldier of God)?
