From 'Mementoes of the Martyrs' : "...which provoked a Frenchman who was there to comment on the strange ways of the English, "those who are for the pope are hanged, those who are against him are burned:"                                               Saint John-Paul II wrote: "The fact that one can die for the faith shows that other demands of the faith can also be met."                                                 Cardinal Müller says, “For the real danger to today’s humanity is the greenhouse gases of sin and the global warming of unbelief and the decay of morality when no one knows and teaches the difference between good and evil.”                                                  St Catherine of Siena said, “We've had enough exhortations to be silent. Cry out with a thousand tongues - I see the world is rotten because of silence.”                                                  Chesterton said, “The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.”                                                Brethren, Wake up!


Many members and friends will be sad to learn of the death of Robin Majdalany, knight of Magistral Grace, who died on 14th January, after a long period of illness.  Please pray for the repose of his soul.
Robin had been for several years a stalwart of the Chartres Pilgrimage, in spite of his feet being attacked by diabetes, and one year with crutches, walking as much as he could and then travelling with the then Grand Prior, Fra' Matthew Festing, and Fra' Freddy Crichton-Stuart in the support van.  He warmth and infectious humour was always cheering as he helped draw the corks at the lunch break and the end of hard days' walking.

His life had been devoted to helping those less fortunate than himself, especially the young, both with the Venerable Order, various charities and later with the Order of Malta.  He was a familiar and friendly figure for many at Lourdes.

He leaves a widow Marie who is herself in poor health, please pray for her.

His funeral will be held on Thursday 1st February at 11.30 am at the Church of Our Most Holy Redeemer & St Thomas More, 7 Cheyne Row, London SW3 5HJ. Members and friends who are free are strongly encouraged to attend.

Requiescat in pace.
