The Order of Saint Isidore of Seville
 

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.


Prayer to St. 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.
