Military and Hospitaller Order of St. Lazarus of Jerusalem is an internationally well recognized Order with semi-independent status of which the Melkite Catholic Patiarch is the Spiritual Protector.
The Grand Mastership is shared between the Duke of Seville (member of the Spanish Royal Family) and the Duke of Brissac from France.
The Order's origins go back to early medieval times and was notable in the Crusades as the "Knights of Lazarus" who were both warriors and caretakers of the sick and of pilgrims to the Holy Land.

Melkite Greek Catholic Church Information Center is dedicated to my cousins: Bucky (Richard C. Liles) and Shirley (Shirley Jean Liles Buck). Bucky fell asleep in the Lord on Dec. 12, 2000 and Shirley fell asleep in the Lord on Nov. 8, 2001.
O God of all spirits and of all flesh, who have destroyed death, overcome the devil, and given life to the world: grant, O Lord, to the souls of your servants Bucky and Shirley, who has departed from this life, that it may rest in a place of light, in a place of happiness, in a place of peace, where there is no pain, no grief, no sighing. And since You are a gracious God and the Lover of Mankind, forgive him/her every sin he/she has committed by thought, or word, or deed, for there is not a man who lives and does not sin : You alone are without sin, your righteousness is everlasting, and your word is true. You are the Resurrection and the Life, and the repose of your departed servants Bucky and Shirley. O Christ our God, and we send up glory to You, together with your eternal Father and your all-holy, good and life-givng Spirit, now and always and for ages upon ages. Amen.
