Requiescat in Pace

Fra Andrew Bertie , 78th Grand Master of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta.
“The other military orders were there to fight the Saracens and to save Spain or the Holy Land or Prussia from the pagans. But we always had this special commitment to the poor and the sick. Our aims today are exactly the same as they were in 1099, the sanctification of our members through service to the sick”.

UPDATE: There's a good article at Catholic News Service
