On This Day   January-04  (Benjamin Rush -1746 AD)

Benjamin Rush was one of the major political leaders who participated in the American Revolution and signed the U.S. Declaration of Independence in 1776 who insisted in medical freedom as in religious freedom but was not successful making it an article of the constitution...

Priory of the Knights of Hope (Hospitaller Order of Physicians & Ecclesiae)

The Priory for Doctors of Medicine...

This sacred religious Order is a millennium long lineage of a tradition of monks, physicians and nurses (Hospitaller’s) who lived apart from society in accordance with their specific religious devotion and worship- that of medical care for the poor and needy, and defense of the Christian culture and faith. This thousand-year period of holiness mentioned in Revelation 20, during which Jesus and his faithful followers are to rule on earth continues into the 21st century. This Order is a modern continuance and is composed of initiates (laity), communicants, citizens of Christendom, postulants, members of vocation, and ordained clergy. Members strive to achieve a common purpose through formally dedicating their life to God's medicines and Christ's gospel to help and heal.

This active, Medical Order is the last such organization, carrying on the work of monastic medicine as today’s nature cure, and we wish to have it preserved for the benefit of future generations as well as serve a lasting memory of a movement that contributed significantly to the Renaissance of today's modern medicine. This heritage included languages, transcription, folk tales, ceremonies, modalities, etc. about traditional medicine, and all the medical and nursing skills that were handed down from generation to generation including surgery and ambulatory care. These traditions and practices reflect the spirit of members and communities of the Hospitaller’s from Europe to the Americas, to the Philippines. Yet this intangible heritage is at great risk as the natural and spiritual heritage must be preserved to the world for future posterity.
