Press Release of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Osj
Sovereign Order of St. John of Jerusalem, Knights of Malta – OSJ
With reference to unauthorized press releases issued in recent months in the name of the Sovereign Order of St. John of Jerusalem, Knights of Malta – OSJ, we strongly emphasize and reiterate that under our Constitution and in strict accordance with the directives received from our Grand Master, H.R.H. Prince Thorbjorn Paternò Castello Guttadauro of Ayerbe d’Aragona of Carcaci of Emanuel, our Order has an absolutely ecumenical – and in no case military – character, with the aim of promoting peace and brotherhood among all peoples and defending human dignity and moral values, irrespective of religion, nationality or color of skin. Facing the many conflicts that divide the world, the Order intends therefore to take no position either in favor or against any of the parties involved, but instead to provide poor and suffering people with all possible aid, assistance and attention.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs OSJ
Amb. Marquis Giuseppe Cipolloni, Knight Grand Cross
