Arming the Knights
Posted: 01 Jan 1995
In a stretch of just two weeks, Brother David Carroll, F.S.C., briefed the Western, Northwestern and Middle Atlantic lieutenancies of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre about the concerns for the Christians of the Holy Land.
Among the items discussed were the quality of life for Arab Christians, doubly a minority among Israelis and Muslims, and the lack of unity among the various churches. These conditions encourage the emigration of the Christian minority to the West.
During the same period, Msgr. Robert L. Stern led members of the Eastern Lieutenancy on a pilgrimage through the region.
The Knights and Ladies of the Holy Sepulchre support the church in the Holy Land.
