Nos dias 09, 10 e 11 de Fevereiro de 2007, foi realizado na cidade de Indaiatuba – no Mosteiro Jesuíta de Itaici, no Estado de São Paulo, onde se reúnem os Bispos da Igreja Católica Apostólica Romana do Brasil, o V Retiro de Investidura do Priorado Geral do Brasil da Ordo Supremus Militaris Templi Hierosolymitani Universalis.

Durante o Retiro, para além das actividades de instrução, meditação e vivência espiritual, procedeu-se também a Investiduras de novos membros e ao encontro dos Templários Brasileiros, vindos de diversos Estados, entre eles: Rio de Janeiro, Santa Catarina e São Paulo (com membros da Capital e Interior).

Foram Investidos no Grau de Sargento 4 novos Irmãos, que chegam ao Priorado para somar e consolidá-lo ainda mais na Terra de Vera Cruz, tendo sido ainda exaltado um Irmão Sargento ao Grau de Cavaleiro Templário. Na mesma ocasião, foi empossado o novo Preceptor para o Estado do Rio de Janeiro, Fr.+ Adilio Jorge Marques, S.T..

Durante o Retiro, foi realizada a eleição para o posto de Prior do Priorado Geral do Brasil, tendo em vista que o então Prior, Fr.+ Vicente Soares Pereira Neto, devido a problemas de ordem pessoal e de saúde renunciou ao posto. Foi eleita, então, por unanimidade de todos os Templários presentes a Dama Templária Sor+ Rosali da Silveira Gato, que servirá a Ordem como Prior do Templo no Brasil pelo período de 5 anos e assim levar à frente o Beauceant na Terra de Vera Cruz.

No domingo, dia 11 de fevereiro foi celebrada com exclusividade e especialmente para os Templários Brasileiros uma missa na Capela do Espírito Santo pelo Diretor do Mosteiro, Pe. Francisco Romanelli (que acolheu, como os demais funcionários do Mosteiro, muito bem a todos), e onde no momento da Homilía, exaltou o dever de todo Templário que é o de SERVIR e também a máxima da Ordem – e também dos Jesuítas: Ad Maiorem Dei Gloriam – Para a Maior Glória de Deus.

E assim o Beauceant Templário segue firme no Brasil, a Terra de Vera Cruz.

During the weekend of February 9, 10 and 11, the Priory General of Brazil organized a Retreat and Investiture in the town of Indaiatuba, state of São Paulo, in the Jesuit Monastery of Itaici, the seat of the Congregation of Roman Catholic Bishops of Brazil. This was the 5th Retreat and Investiture of the Priory General.

During the event, along with the normal instruction activities, meditation and spiritual undertakings, the Priory has made new Investitures and promoted the fraternal meeting of Templars coming from several states, such as Rio de Janeiro, Santa Catarina and São Paulo (both Capital city and the countryside).

Four new members were invested as Sergeants, fortifying even more the basis of the Priory in the lands of Vera Cruz, while one other brother was exalted to the degree of Knight. The ceremonies closed with the installation of the new Preceptor of the State of Rio de Janeiro, Fr.+ Adilio Jorge Marques, S.T..

During the retreat the Priory held the electoral assembly to elect the new Prior General of Brazil, due to the early retirement of former Prior, Fr.+ Vicente Soares Pereira Neto, due to personal and health problems. Dame Sor+ Rosali da Silveira Gato, was elected by unanimous vote by all present Templars. She will serve the Order as Prior for a period of 5 years, holding high the Beauceant in the Land of Vera Cruz.

Sunday the 11th an Eucharisty dedicated to the Order and to the Brazilian Templars was celebrated in the Chapel of the Holy Ghost by the Director of the Monastery, Father Francisco Romanelli (very kind, as well as all the workers at the monastery, in helping with the Retreat). During his Homily, Father Romanelli called the attention of the assembly to the higher duty of the Templar: to SERVE, reminding everyone of the motto shared between the Templar and Jesuit Order: Ad Maiorem Dei Gloriam – To The Greater Glory of God.

So, the Templar Beauceant still hangs firm in Brazil, the Land of Vera Cruz.

The Chancellor would like to take this opportunity to congratulate our Brazilian Brethren, especially Fr+ Adilio Marques and Dame Rosali. With this election, Dame Rosali becomes the only Prior Dame in office of the Order internationally, setting an inspiring and enduring example to all our Brethren worldwide. We wish her the best for her term in office.
