PROLOGUE to this English version electronically published in the Internet

Since I founded the South African Relief Organisation of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, the Brotherhood of Blessed Gérard, in 1992, it had been my desire to give profound background information on the person of Blessed Gérard, in whose honour our organisation was named the Brotherhood of Blessed Gérard. It has been a long process to plan, translate and prepare this edition and it has actually become an entirely revised and augmented version. First I had planned to publish it as printed media, but the times have changed and electronic media are taking over from libraries. I must admit, that this is an experiment and very much a Beta-Version. If you find any mistakes (English is not my mother tongue), or have any other comments and suggestions, please contact me by e-mail at . This Beta-Version does not include all pictures yet and is missing several chapters, which are still in preparation. Please be patient.

Yours sincerely

Father Gérard Lagleder O.S.B.
