Praying for Knights Templars

This petition had 74 supporters

Knight Templar's were a Chivalrous Knighthood that protected the Pilgrims in the Holy Land in the 12th century. later it dissolved by the Pope Clement V, its wealth confiscated, the members burnt at stake by the King of France. They were heaped with many condemnations which were not clearly proved. Thus the Name of the Order which worked for the Church and its wealth was defiled. The last grand master of the Order Jacques de Molay, while burnt at the stake said, "I have committed many sins, but the Order is Pure and Holy". The deceased members of the order received no prayers for the consolation of their souls , which is an act of Christian Charity. They have venerated the Holy Mother of God very much. Is it right for a Catholic to despise the souls of these sons of our Lady in despair? The Holy Rule of the Templar's prescribes saying 100 Our Fathers for a deceased member of their order. But who had prayed for the brothers who were burnt and killed? There wasn't  anyone, since their order was disbanded. 

So , His Holiness, the Pope, kindly please instruct the Christians to pray for the soul of these warriors who protected the Church by giving their life in the Holy Land. Kindly please Consider it Your Holiness, that their souls may be consoled.
