It is a lay religious Order, by tradition military, chivalrous and nobiliary, which in time became sovereign on the islands of Rhodes and later of Malta.<o:p></o:p></span></p><font size="3" face="Times New Roman"> </font><p style="margin: 0cm 0cm 0pt; text-align: justify; text-autospace: ; mso-layout-grid-align: none;" class="MsoNormal"><span style='font-family: "NewAster","sans-serif"; font-size: 10pt; mso-bidi-font-family: NewAster;'><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></span></p><font size="3" face="Times New Roman"> </font><p style="margin: 0cm 0cm 0pt; text-align: justify; text-autospace: ; mso-layout-grid-align: none;" class="MsoNormal"><span style='font-family: "NewAster","sans-serif"; font-size: 10pt; mso-bidi-font-family: NewAster;'>The purpose of the Order is the promotion of the glory of God through the sanctification of its members, service to the faith and to the Holy Father, and assistance to one&#8217;s neighbour, in accordance with its ancient traditions.<o:p></o:p></span></p><font size="3" face="Times New Roman"> </font><p style="margin: 0cm 0cm 0pt; text-align: justify; text-autospace: ; mso-layout-grid-align: none;" class="MsoNormal"><span style='font-family: "NewAster","sans-serif"; font-size: 10pt; mso-bidi-font-family: NewAster;'><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></span></p><font size="3" face="Times New Roman"> </font><span style='font-family: "NewAster","sans-serif"; font-size: 10pt; mso-fareast-font-family: "Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language: EN-AU; mso-fareast-language: EN-US; mso-bidi-language: AR-SA; mso-bidi-font-family: NewAster;'>True to the divine precepts and to the admonitions of our Lord Jesus Christ, guided by the teachings of the Church, the Order affirms and propagates the Christian virtues of charity and brotherhood.

The Order fulfils its institutional tasks especially by carrying out hospitaller works, including social and health assistance, as well as aiding victims of exceptional disasters and of war, attending also to their spiritual well-being and the strengthening of their faith in God.</span></div>
