Templars of the World, Sisters and Brothers,

 

It is fashionable to wish a Good and Happy New Year at the beginning of the new which begins, however this year I am very sad not to be able to do it like every year, with peace and serenity, in order to be able to turn a page and to open another one. Indeed, I will not go back over the dramatic situation that we have been living for a year now, we have all suffered the consequences, but only to say to you the regret of not having been able to come and participate in your various Investitures, and of you meet for almost a year now, having been obliged to postpone the Jacques de MOLAY’s Commemorations, our annual Convent in NORWAY, and especially not having been able to materialize our projects: Convent, return of the Archives to FRANCE, and realization of our commitments of all kinds, nothing is lost, only delayed …

Despite the complicated context, Templars we have been able to keep our links, and thanks to this pandemic, we have strengthened our Fraternal and Knightly friendship. All the Grand Priors of the World have contributed to this solidarity in the World. The information circulated well, we have been in contact regularly, each has produced a full report on the situation of his Priory, which will allow us to make a complete statement of the world situation, for March 2021.

 

This pandemic will have resulted in consolidating our ties, without stopping the construction of the Temple. Because even if the complications slowed us down, we continued to move forward. The new Concordat will be signed in the coming weeks, and then a copy will be given to each of you at a future Convent. The new Grand Prior of BRAZIL is in place, as you could see during a general information.

In ITALY, The ROME Commandery is still under construction and will be effective as soon as we have the opportunity to move. In addition, today we have a new hope : that of being able to see each other again in 2021, because research on the various vaccines will now be making great strides.

On the other hand, I don’t think that it will be possible to meet for the “Jacques de MOLAY Ceremonies” in March in Paris, but I still keep this hope, and thereby to make a meeting of the Steering Committee of the Order a reality.

We will surely have the possibility of meeting in May in MADRID/Spain 22nd and 23rd of May, or in TRANI/Italy for our Convent scheduled for September, fom 3rd to 6 of September (all the information will be communicated to you depending on the sanitary possibilities).

TEMPLARS, at the risk of repeating myself, because I say it regularly « we live in a changing world, in a period of generation transition, this on all levels », the Temple of course is no exception. For us Templars that means « adapting to this living world. It also means « having confidence, confidence in our Successors, confidence in the youth who join us » we see it more and more often, youth for whom  we  are  putting  in  place  a  structure  that  will  allow  them  to  continue  our  work  on  solid  foundations. They  are  new  Knights  who  only  ask  to  be  the  guarantors  of  the  Order  and  our  Values,  for  us  to  confirm them in this way.

TEMPLARS, for more than 700 YEARS, I recalled it recently, we are the first generation of Knights so numerous in our History. Knights who are often representative of our Institutions, representatives of our Nations, let us be proud of them, and I cannot repeat it enough: “Let us be proud to be what we are ! “. We wear on our back a White Coat, this Coat : “Symbol of courage, enthusiasm, altruism”, we can add” tolerance and respect in the spirit of our Christian values “.

I take this opportunity of Wishes to wish you all, your Families, Friends and loved Ones the best possible New Year and above all a lot of courage, tolerance and Love. Let us also have a very special thought for those who have left us this year 2020, may peace be with them …For all of you Templars, because each of you is a Link in our great chain of Love, I wish a HAPPY NEW YEAR 2021 !

I  send  you  my  warmest  chivalrous  feeling,  and  assure  you  of  my  unwavering  attachment  to  our  Order.

Vive le Chevalier !

Non Nobis Domine, Non Nobis, Sed Nomini Tuo da Gloriam!
