Blessings Silent Knights,


I pray all of our Silent Knights have a Merry Christmas and look forward to a year of peace, prosperity, and service to those less fortunate. God bless you all this holiday season.


This past year Silent Knights have reached out to people in their communities to provide encouragement, hope, food, medical assistance, and home heating oil. One of the recipients has gone to the trouble of publishing a thank you in a local paper since they could not identify the source of the gift. That gesture spoke to the community and, I hope, encouraged others to follow our example.


A respected leader once told me that, “You never know when you hit a life changing button.” Those words have stuck with me over the years and I sometimes contemplate on the effect that one act of kindness can have. One act of kindness can ripple through a community and influence change in hearts. It can encourage, provide hope, and in some cases save lives.We encourage you to pay attention to the people you encounter. Speak encouraging words. Respond to the needs that you can.


Silent Knight books are available for Christmas gifts this year. Many of our Silent Knights order a book or two for gifts to young people in their lives. They make a wonderful stocking stuffer. Contact us at SILENTKNIGHTTWO@aol.com.


Blessings to you all this Christmas.

From the foreword...


"Through the SILENT KNIGHT program, we can, in fact, make ours a better society and this planet a better world."

RADM James J. Carey



SILENT KNIGHT is the story of one man's effort to make a difference in his community. It is a story of love, compassion, mentoring and dignity. The author weaves a delicate message of service to others with a beautiful love story that captures your heart. You will cry, laugh and wonder at the simplicity and beauty of the SILENT KNIGHT. It is a story for all ages.


SILENT KNIGHT is the first book in a trilogy centered on the life and legacy of Sir Donald Wilhelm Peterson, a fictitious retired Army colonel and Knight Templar. SILENT KNIGHT is a mixture of fact and fiction... the charity is real and many elements of the story have been derived from the author's experiences and persons he has known.


Perhaps you can become a SILENT KNIGHT. If you have the desire, passion, caring soul, respect and dignity of character represented by this story, you too can make a difference. Read this book and ask yourself, "WHY NOT?"

In Honor of all the Silent Knights across the many lands of man.




Chivalry did not die with the good knights of old, For among us today walks those new Knights, with hearts of hidden gold.


Armor clad they need not be, nor, many does one ever see, but their presence across all the lands of man will be known through their noble but humble acts and charitable deeds.


History may have dealt them a near fatal blow, but from just a surviving few, grew a revival of their honored Order, into a new world of the neediest of mankind.


Now these Brothers and Sisters of the cross of Christ, seek to carry upon their shoulders the new burden of His cross and that of the neediest of His Lands.


They seek not accolades for their good deeds, finding solace in the knowledge of their sacrifice and a job well done, glorifies only the Lords name.


Seek not these Silent Knights of the Lords cross to stand out from the common man, for each day these Knights walk among you, seeking those to help have a better day.


Through sometimes but a single act or deed, they help one and often many in need, Their sacrifice to help the Lords many is their chosen chivalrous way.


They are the Silent Knights of Christ and you may, when in need one day you may hear one say, In but our Lord's name alone be given the glory of our intervention on this His and your most glorious day.



Yours in Service,

Chev. Raymond L.Morehead KTJ, FSA Scot.
