When does the next Crusade start? Right now! Meet the Knights of the Crusade.
This year we had five (Abigail was all set to be St. Joan of Arc…right up to the point that Rylee balked at being St. Elizabeth of Hungary. “Where’s my sword? I don’t want to be a princess!” she asked tearfully. So…the girls joined the fray. Voila! Five knights!)
While we’re on the subject, check out the Ancient Oath of a Knight:
Be loyal of hands and mouth, and serve every man as best you may. Seek the fellowship of good men; hearken to their words and remember them. Be humble and courteous wherever thou go, boasting not nor talking overmuch, neither be dumb altogether. Look to it that no lady or damsel be in reproach through your default, nor any woman of whatsoever quality. And if you fall into company where men speak with disrepect of any woman, show by gracious words that it pleaseth you not, and depart.
The office of knight is to promote faith in Jesus Christ as Lord of Lords, King of Kings and the only Savior and to protect those who seek to worship in His name any where upon the face of this earth that He has made.
Ancient Prayer For a Knight’s Sword:
“Hearken we beseech Thee, O Lord, to our prayers, and deign to bless with the right hand of Thy Majesty this sword with which They servant desires to be girded, that it may be a defense of churches, widows, orphans and all Thy servants against the scourge of pagans, that it may be the terror and dread of all evil-doers, and that it may be just in both attack and defense.”
