History & Aims of the Order The Order was formed on 1st January 2000 to: Celebrate the beginning of Christ's Third Millennium Honor Saint Isidore of Seville as the Patron Saint of the Internet Promote the ideals of Christian chivalry through the medium of the Internet The Order makes no claims of antiquity nor does it have endless lists of protocols. Simply, it aims to instill in its members a Chivalric Code so as to be conscious of their duties as Christians and as Knights or Dames of the Order, and so use the Internet in an appropriate manner. To that end, the Order aims to provide them with the mental and spiritual armor to help claim the Internet for Christ. The Order's Pedigree is as follows: Knighted by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Major General Sir Roy Redgrave MC: Knight of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, Grand Prior of England and Wales OSMTH Knighted Eric Russell-Brown: Knight Commander OSMTH - founding Governor-General OStI Knighted a Knight Commander OSMTH (remaining anonymous) - founding Chancellor OStI In turn, admitting in absentia, all members of the Order of Saint Isidore of Seville.

Oblations and Finances The Order does not actively canvass any funds or gifts from its members.

Prayer to Saint Isidore of Seville Almighty and eternal God, who has created us in Thy image and bade us to seek after all that is good, true and beautiful, especially in the divine person of Thy only-begotten Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, grant we beseech Thee that, through the example of Saint Isidore, bishop and doctor, during our journeys through the Internet we will direct our hands and eyes only to that which is pleasing to Thee and treat with charity and patience all those souls whom we encounter. Through Christ our Lord, Amen.
