Lord Jesus, thou hast seen fit to enlist me for thy service among the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem. I humbly entreat thee through the intercession of the most holy Virgin of Philermo, of St. John the Baptist, of Blessed Gerard, and all the Saints, to keep me faithful to the traditions of our Order.

Be it mine to practice and defend the Catholic, the Apostolic, the Roman faith against all enemies of religion; be it mine to practice charity towards my neighbors, especially the poor and sick.

Give me the strength I need, to carry out this my resolve, forgetful of myself, learning ever from Thy holy Gospel a spirit of deep and generous Christian devotion, striving ever to promote God’s Glory, the world’s peace, and all that may benefit the Order of St. John of Jerusalem. Amen.
