So great in the sight of Jesus Christ is the charity offered to the poor and needy, that He declared to the Pharasees of old, that despite their horrendous hypocrisy and abysmal spiritual corruption, all would be wiped clean for them if they gave of their substance to the poor.
In His Parable on the Good Samaritan, He showed that God is mightily pleased with whomsoever does charity for those in extreme necessity, like the Jew who was robbed, beaten and left for dead on the side of the road, which went down to Jericho and Arabia. — Samaritans were heretical and schismatic Jews. That Christ placed one in His parable shows how strongly He intended to shock the sensibilities of the Jews of His own day, who took pride in their liturgical rituals in the Temple at Jerusalem, but neglected the greatest precept of the Law: Thou shalt love the Lord, thy God, with thy whole heart and soul, and thy own neighbor as thyself.
Inspired by the teaching of Our Divine Master, AJ Baalman, myself and hundreds of other Catholics, Protestants and non Christians, even, have assisted the victims of terrorism during the last 5 years through the works of Ordo Militaris Catholics, by donating over $20,000 USD in direct aid to persecuted Christians, while the members of our Order have donated more than $22,000 to our Orders works to provide for needy Catholics.
Our Order’s Motto is our inspiration for all we do: Greater love no man hath, than to lay down his life for his friends! Which we understand has, Greater love no one has than to put his life to risk helping those in the greatest necessity, the victims of persecution and war. We know that it is a sign of Divine Favor that our work, often in high risk areas of the world, has made our Order an its members hated all around the world by certain persons who feign Christianity or oppose it, since we serve Christ without any attachments to politics or geopolitics.
Presently, I am heading the Order’s holy work in the Ukraine, were we have established a Commandery to provide room and board to our volunteers and have begun the legal work to establish a recognized Ukrainian Charity which will be able to receive donations dedicated to helping the victims of Russian aggression, from those donors all over the world. — If you are a Catholic man interested in such a work of mercy, click here for more information.
Our Order pays no salaries and structures its finances so that 100% of your donations go to the needy. Our corporation in Montana, Ordo Militaris Inc., absorbs all the overhead and fees from its own very modest sales of collectables, so that we can offer this unique 0% overhead opportunity to helping in our works of mercy. You can see a world map of our projects in the last 5 years at the bottoms of the page at ordo-militaris.us.
At Kyiv, while organizing the legal and domicile basis of our future works, I have begun to assist the victims of war with the Humanitarian Funds already raised. Here is one beneficiary, who agreed to be photographed, so her story could be told:
I do not have a camera team following me around, nor would I want one, so this one story is only one of dozens of persons already assisted, as I never refuse any needy person who asks for food or clothing.
Some think I am a grifter or larcenist, and yet it is true I am trying to rob Heaven of graces for all those who assist me, by heading the call of Christ in truth to help the needy! That makes me a devil in some peoples books, but I hope you are like me who only worry to have your names written in Christ’s Book of Eternal Life.
If you would like to join me in these works of mercy, please consider a generous donation to our CrossAzure Humanitarian Fund. As president of Ordo Militaris Inc., I will see that 100% of your donation goes to the needy in Ukraine. As soon as our Ukrainian Charity is established, I will repost this article with the Bank Account number of that charity, but for now, for those willing to donate via credit card, debit card and PayPal, you can help by Donating through this link (click the image):
