Let me remind those of you who are about to become members of this Hospitaller Order that the Cross which you will receive is, to Christians, the sign of Man's Redemption; its four arms symbolize the cardinal virtues: Prudence, Temperance, Justice and Fortitude; its points represent the eight beatitudes, which spring from the practice of those virtues, namely: Humility; Sorrow for Sin; Meekness; Thirst for Righteousness; Mercy; Purity; Peace; Suffering under Persecution; whilst its greenness will ever remind you of the humanitarian care required of Christ's soldiers and servants

The CSLI (Corps Saint Lazare International) acknowledged the merits of Confrere Luiz Henrique de Sousa - OLJ (and Captain CSLI), awarding him with the CSLI Cross of Honour in Bronze.

The Bearers of the Banners and their Commander, Confrere Demetrio Mateus Moreira - OLJ (First Lieutenant CSLI) officially received, as a sign of gratitude, the insignia of the CSLI.
