A Brotherhood of Christian Spiritual Chivalry
The Knights of the Holy Grail is a mystical fellowship of the Quest. It is formed in the spiritual chivalric tradition of the one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. It includes both men (knights) and women (ladies).
The fellowship is organized around the stories and legend of the Holy Grail, which symbolically express the search for ancient Christian wisdom and the hidden treasures of Christ's holy Church.
The Knights of the Holy Grail holds to the faith of the ancient and undivided Church. We believe that miracles are not limited to the Bible or to the past. Our desire above all else is to truly follow Christ.
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 of body and soul; holy apparitions, visions and divine messages; 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.
The Knights of the Holy Grail is centered in the character of Christ. It is celebrated in simple and elegant ritual. It binds its Knights and Ladies to God, and to each other in mystical fellowship 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, brotherly, chivalrous, and very spiritual in the best sense of the word. These are the foundation-stones of this fellowship, with Jesus Christ being the chief corner-stone.
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 Lord Jesus 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.
"We Few, We Happy Few,
We Band of Brothers" - Henry V
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 mystical 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
