“Religionem imparare non possumus, quia nomo cogitur ut credat inuitus”
“We cannot command religion, for no man can be compelled to believe anything against his will.”

Sir William Marshal rests comfortably as a Knights Templar at the exemplary Temple Church, London, Engliand.
In 1183, Richard the Lionheart’s brother and heir to the throne of England, Henry the Young King died without fulfilling his vow of pilgrimage.
The noble knight Sir William Marshal was entrusted to complete the pilgrimage for him.
“Marshal, you have always been loyal and faithful. I leave you my cross and pray you to carry it to the Holy Sepulchre. You will aquit for me my vow to God.”
In pale imitation we embark on a pilgrimage with scallop shell and ash to commence at Saint Peter’s Basilica, Vatican City and end at the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem.
