Sovereign Military Religious Ordre


Chevaliers de l'Ordre de Notre Dame de Sion
Ordre Religieux Militaire Souverain de Jerusalem

 Historical,  Traditional,  Sacramental

Knight Friar

The Cross and Shield

Non nobis, Domine, non nobis, sed nomine Tuo, da gloriam!

Psalms 115


The Message of the Knights of Notre Dame is one of hope, joy, enthusiasm for life and continuing
inspiration from the positive teachings of Jesus Christ. Thus, Chevaliers de Notre Dame is an ordre
that is joyful in tone, satisfying to the soul, uplifting to the heart and sane in it's appeal to the freedom  
of mind and spirit in all people.

The Key to understanding the foundation and the mission of this Religious Ordre:

The Good Samaritan Ecclesiology.

The Knights of the Ordre are adherents of the Sangreal.

The Chalice may be perceived as a vine weaving through the annals of time. The fruit of this vine is the grape and from the grape comes forth wine.
Wine has always been associated with the blood of Jesus Christ. Upon this tradition rests the very heart of the Eucharist (Holy Communion), the
holiest of Catholic Sacraments. This perpetual symbol represents no less than the forever enduring Messianic bloodline of Jesus Christ.

The Chalice and the vine support the ideal of service, whereas the blood and the wine corresponds to the eternal spirit of fulfillment. The spiritual
quest therefore, is a desire for fulfillment through the giving and receiving of service. Through history this has become known as the Grail Code,
in and of itself a parable for the human condition.

The quest for us all then, is to serve God and, by serving, to achieve.

Nourishment of the Soul

The Latin expression lectio divina means a prayerful reading of scripture to nourish prayer
and to enter into communion with the mystery presented to us in the biblical text.

Lectio divina is distinct from scientific exegesis, study and interpretation, since it is centered
on dialogue of faith between the reader and God, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
