A Brotherhood of Spiritual Chivalry
The Knights of the Holy Grail is a knightly brotherhood in the Christian spiritual chivalric tradition.
In the tradition of the Knights of the Round Table, we Quest for the Holy Grail, the search for ancient Christian wisdom and the lost treasures of Christ's holy Church.
In the spirit of adventure and in the grand old tradition of knighthood, we journey forth upon this Quest that leads us to sacred shrines and ancient churches, places of miracles and healing, visions and divine messages, holy apparitions, lost spiritual treasures, words of wisdom and guidance from holy men and women, hermits, and living saints.
We devote ourselves to the cause of good and noble deeds, helping others and protecting the weak and unfortunate. Through the holy mysteries, we engage in spiritual warfare against the Devil and all his works as well as the darkness in our own souls, and strive to advance in virtue and perfection of character.
The Knights of the Holy Grail is centered in the character of Christ. It is handled in simple and elegant ritual. It binds its Knights and Ladies to God, and to each other in true brotherhood. It reaches all ranks of society. It will win, not by numbers, but by its refining, elevating ideals.
The Knights of the Holy Grail is mystic, private, clannish, chivalrous, and very spiritual in the best sense of the word. These are the foundation-stones of this holy Order.
It is bound together by love of our brothers and sisters of like precious faith. The true Knight is a lover, a lover of the best. He loves his country, hence patriotism; Christ's holy Church, hence religion; the Christ, hence devotion.
He champions the Church, the mystical body of Christ, one and undivided as in days of old. His ambition is for the good and the right; and he says:
“Follow the Christ, the King;
Live pure, speak true, right wrong, follow the King, —
Else, wherefore born?”
We invite anyone who shares our interests and ideals and who wishes to forge the spirit of friendship in a true brotherhood of Christ’s Knights and Ladies to join us.
The valiant mission of the Knights is the Quest of the Holy Grail, the mystical heart of ancient Christian spirituality. The Quest opens the gates to a holy and hidden knowledge, a treasury of divine secrets, a heaven of the most sacred mysteries of God — and bids us to find it.
“Chivalry is only a name for that general spirit or state of mind which disposes men to heroic actions, and keeps them conversant with all that is beautiful and sublime in the intellectual and moral world.” — Kenelm Henry Digby, The Broad Stone of Honour
