OSMTH International Order Nobis Domine, Non Nobis Sed Nomini Tua Da Gloriam the holy sites of Christianity and the other great faiths are re-spected, protected and maintained, and pilgrims can travel to them in safety; the dedication, generosity and integrity of all those engaged in providing humanitarian aid are recognised and valued, and aid workers carry out their vital work in an ethical manner without fear of discrimination; the principles of active charity, courtesy, dedication and honesty, inherent in the highest ideals of a code of chivalry and a personal rule of life, are spread wider and wider in society; and the contribution of the Order of Knights Templar, medieval and modern, with regard to agriculture, construction, transportation, crafts, medicine, finance, inter-faith affairs, diplomacy and philan-thropy is both well researched, and also widely understood and valued by the public.
OSMTH - Knights Templar International aspires to be the modern organi-sation the original Knights Templar might have become, if their historical development had been unbroken.
Like other orders of military and monastic origins, whose traditions stem from Jerusalem in the Middle Ages, our membership has long ago put aside swords for purely ceremonial use and turned its attention, as a civil society organisation, to charitable, cultural, humanitarian and reconciliation endeavours.
In our members today, we look for Christians sufficiently confident in their own beliefs to respect and value the beliefs of those of other faiths and of none.
Knights Templar International seek, by their collective action and individual personal example, to put into practice in the modern world the highest ideals of the code of chivalry and the per-sonal rule of Christian life inspired by the spiritual father of the medieval Order, St Bernard of Clairvaux.
Our modern Order also adheres to the Principles adopted by the General Assembly of the Order of the Temple in Paris in 1841 in that: our membership is open to Christians of all denominations and from all social backgrounds; we operate as an openly accountable and democratic organisation our members have a duty to promote the causes of peace and human dignity; and
our work in humanitarian aid is undertaken for the benefit of the diverse strands of all humanity.
In addition to the local and national activities of each of its constit ent Member Grand Priories, OSMTH Knights Templar Intern tional undertakes a range of collective programmes around the world.
