Vivat Jesu or Vivat Jesus
When the late Supreme Chaplain Bishop Charles Greco was a seminarian he was deeply moved while reading the story of St. Bernadine of Siena. He adopted the saint’s favorite prayer – “May Jesus Live”, in its Latin form “Vivat Jesu”, to use as the motto for his life and priesthood. When he became Bishop of Alexandria, LA in 1946, Bishop Greco chose the same phrase as his Episcopal motto.
Our past Supreme Knight, Virgil Dechant, thought our Order ought to be devoted to the name of Jesus and chose Bishop Greco’s motto “Vivat Jesu” as a greeting. The response is “SEMPER”, meaning ‘always’. By its use, we Knights help bring back the love and devotion to the Holy Name of Jesus.
Vivat Jesu or Vivat Jesus
Lorsque la fin aumônier suprême, Mgr Charles Greco était un séminariste, il a été profondément ému en lisant l'histoire de saint Bernardin de Sienne. Il a adopté prière préférée de la saint - "Que Jésus Live", dans sa forme latine «Vivat Jesu", à utiliser comme devise de sa vie et le sacerdoce. Quand il est devenu évêque d'Alexandrie, LA en 1946, évêque gréco choisi la même phrase comme devise épiscopale.
Notre passé Chevalier suprême, Virgil Dechant, pensait notre Ordre devrait être consacrée à la nom de Jésus et a choisi la devise de Mgr Greco "Vivat Jesu" comme un salut. La réponse est "sempre", ce qui signifie «toujours». Par son utilisation, nous Chevaliers aider à ramener l'amour et la dévotion au Saint Nom de Jésus.
