Projects in the Time of Corona

Cautious optimism is spreading in Germany: Some of the protective measures against the spread of the coronavirus are being eased. We are regaining leeway – yet prudence and above all consideration remain paramount! Practised solidarity means to continue keeping your distance, to act wisely, and above all to show consideration!

The Grand Prior
As early as March 26th, wishing that our Order would contribute to serving its hospitaller vocation, our Grand Prior addressed all of you to suggest that you respond to the call for blood donation issued by the French Blood Establishment, as donors are becoming rarer in this period of pandemic. This appeal remains relevant.

The Grand Bailiff, HE Dominique Doyen, GCLJ, in a long communication addressed to his members on Easter Day and which he transmitted to us, wrote, in a long message summarized here, that on the day of the resurrection of Christ our Saviour, traditionally a day of joy, the world is overwhelmed by a terrible pandemic whose virus is not well known, nor is there a vaccine that could protect the whole world. He recalled that ten years ago, Bill Gates announced such a catastrophe because of a lack of research and preparation.

Many members of the Lieutenancy of Saint Lazarus have participated from the very first days in individual blood donations and are also there to listen to single or sick people who find it difficult to bear the current situation of confinement and to whom they offer help and advice.

Thanking you for appreciating these actions, which have also been communicated to our international bodies, and wishing you the best possible health, believe, in the expectation of being able to meet again, Excellencies, Dear Sisters, Dear Brothers, in my fraternal greetings in Saint Lazarus.

Dominique Madej, KCLJ, KMLJ, Chancellor
