Confratelli, Consorelle, Amici!
His Royal Highness, Prince Carlo di Borbone delle Due Sicilie, the entire Royal Family, our Prior, His Eminence Theodore Cardinal McCarrick, and our Delegate, Cav. John M. Viola, extend the warmest Best Wishes to all our members, family and loved ones for a Happy New Year.
May all Blessings and Grace be with all as we enter a New Year.
It is fitting to recall our Order's connection on this the last day of our year. It is the feast of St. Pope Sylvester I. It was in great part due to the friendship of Emperor St Constantine the Great with Pope Sylvester that persecution of religion ended in the Roman Empire. The Emperor issued the Edict of Milan, which tolerated freedom of religious practice after requests from St. Helena and Pope Sylvester.
