The “Silent Walks for the Faith” that we have been doing all over Italy for three years are moments of intense spiritual participation of ordinary people who, engaged in their daily activities in the city centers, appreciated Silence, Composure and Order with which the Templars, proudly carry the Sacred Red Cross suffering of Christ, have made visible their tangible side by side of the Holy Church, following our Pope Francis and the White Knight, Jesus the Christ.
They have been realized today in many important cities such as: Rome, Milan, Turin, Verona, Padua, Florence, Mantua, Pordenone, Trieste, Naples, Cuneo, Modena, Campobasso, Jesi, Ancona, Ascoli Piceno and in smaller but not For this reason, less important are Sassoferrato, Città di Castello, Offagna, Cassano allo Ionio, Bobbio, Bardonecchia, Puianello di Quattro Castella, Copparo di Ferrara, Lendinara, Senigallia, Sovereto di Puglia, Fontanellato di Parma, Arcidosso, Petrella Tifernina, Gerace, Cetraro , Noto.
“Their Silence causes confusion”: this is one of the beautiful phrases of comment that a gentleman has exclaimed in the city of Verona as we pass; during the Extraordinary Exhibition of the Holy Shroud, by us Templars, overseen with over 200 volunteers, on the streets of Turin, another father of a family, talking to his wife and children, exclaimed: “Look, I told you that True Templars still existed nowadays! ”
And the many smiles of the people, the words of encouragement, the invitation to continue in our works, humble free and of strong Christian witness.
The testimony of the Catholic Templars following the words of our Pope Francis is not limited to the “Silent Walking for the Faith”: the custody of the desecrated and abandoned churches and their reopening to the worship of the faithful: the Eucharistic Adoration even at night everywhere are requested; Proselytism and Christian and Catholic Testimony inspired by the ancient Templar Cavalry; free meetings and conferences focused on the Holy Shroud, on the cult of the Ancient Relics and on the example of the ancient Templar Christian martyrs; the Work of new evangelization towards the young and the less young that has led to enlarge our ranks up to today’s number of 1300 members, men and women, the constant and active presence in over 100 Italian Dioceses at the free and disinterested service of Bishops, Priests and Consecrated; the service of Custody, welcome and vigilance of the Vatican Basilica of Loreto and of its Holy House at the humble service of Our Lady the Black Virgin; the day and night accompaniment of the pilgrim statue of Our Lady of Fatima, of the World Apostolate presided over by S.E. Bishop Giovanni d’Ercole, with great public and faithful participation in many parishes in Italy, especially this year, the centenary of the apparition.
I greet you in Christ our Lord with the motto of the Temple:
“Non nobis, Domine, non nobis, sed Nomini Tuo da gloriam!“
Vive Dieu, Saint Amour!
