The Grand Prior Spiritual
Whilst respecting the principles of ecumenism and the unity of Christians, the Grand Prior Spiritual implements the spiritual guidelines given by the Grand Master in agreement with the Spiritual Protector.
The Grand Prior Spiritual liaises with the Chaplains General of each jurisdiction. He oversees the preparation of postulants, the conduct of ceremonies and the provision of the spiritual support needed by Knights and Dames of the Order in their commanderies, always maintaining an ecumenical spirit.
The Grand Prior Spiritual writes notes on spiritual matters and texts for spiritual reflection; he also organises meetings, retreats and pilgrimages.
