Grand Prior’s Christmas Message

As 2016 draws to a close we should not only pause for a moment to reflect on all that we have achieved throughout the last twelve months, but take some time out to think about all those peoples around-the-world who have been affected and suffered in some way by both natural and man-made disasters: destruction, sickness, famine, dispersal and exile.

A few members of the Estonian Priory have visited the Cistercian Monastery Padise, a magnificent and unique monument of medieval architecture. Construction of the monastery lasted over 200 years, the year of its foundation is in 1250. The estate is now a charming place to stroll and explore the history. We marvel at the majestic ruins of the monastery. It touched its ancient walls, remember that much ... and feel the full force of this unique place.

Chers frères et soeurs en Chevalerie, chers amis et amies,

C’est sur une note bien positive que débute l’année 2016.
Notre repas des vœux qui s’est déroulé ce samedi 23 janvier à Tihange fut un franc succès.
L’occasion fut donnée de nous retrouver autour d'une bonne et belle table, de découvrir de nouveaux visages, mais également d'apprendre à mieux nous connaitre.

Je tiens à souligner l'organisation sans faille de ce dîner et souhaite remercier le Chevalier Manuel Duchesne, Prieur principal du Benelux et Martine Beddengenoodts, son épouse, qui en furent les architectes, l'exercice ne fut pas mince.

Des amis appartenant à d’autres Ordres et Confraternités nous ont fait l’insigne honneur de se joindre à nous, illustrant que les valeurs chevaleresques ne sont pas un vain mot.
Leur présence nous a fait chaud au coeur.
Je salue plus particulièrement l’Ordre Equestre du Saint Sauveur de Montréal représenté par le Chevalier Prévôt Georges Cattelain, Grand Prieur de l’OESSM – Belgique et de son épouse la Chevaleresse profès Ursula Cattelain-Lintz, du Chevalier Jean-Pierre Poilvache, Commandeur du Hainaut et de son épouse la Chevaleresse Marie-France Asselot ;
La Fraternité Chevaleresque Michaélite représentée par le Chevalier Anne-Marie Georges, Visiteur des Nations de la FCM ;
L’Ordre Militaire et Hospitalier de Saint Lazare de Jérusalem, représenté par Lucien Motch, OLJ.

Cette journée aura également été marquée par un virage dans mon engagement Chevaleresque, le Comte Ulisses de Rolim, notre Grand prieur et le Chevalier Manuel Duchesne m'ont témoigné leur confiance en me confiant la charge de Prieur faisant fonction pour le Prieuré du Royaume de Belgique.

Je les en remercie chaleureusement et placerai tous mes efforts afin de m'en montrer digne.
Il s’agit d’un honneur mais également d’un rare privilège, celui de pouvoir poursuivre l’effort mené depuis bien des années par Manu et son épouse, mais également de pouvoir assurer - par vous et avec vous - la promotion et la mise en exergue d'un bien bel idéal, celui de la Chevalerie et de notre Confraternité de manière plus particulière.

Bien Confraternellement,

Chevalier Raymond Debelle
Prieur faisant fonction pour le Prieuré du Royaume de Belgique
Confraternité Royale de Saint Téotonio
