The Most Effective Weapon of a Catholic Knight

The Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Anyone seeking to be a Catholic Knight should make daily recitation of the Rosary a lifetime habit.

Jesus, my Lord and Savior, make me your instrument this day, that I may be a faithful witness to you and your Church. Preserve me from anything that would be detrimental to my soul and the souls of those around me.
