Aleksy II Blessing

The Order of the Orthodox Knights of Saint John – Russian Grand Priory.

Having considered your petition for the sanctioning of the revived Knights of the Othodox Order of Saint John Russian Grand Priory as a charitable organization, and in view of your categorical assurance that your Order is not affiliated with either the Roman Catholic Order or Freemasonry, I am invoking God’s blessing upon you, the members of your Order, and its charitable work to render assistance to the Orthodox Church and the Russian people.

May the Lord God help you.
