Secret statutes of the Knights templar order

Article 30 of the elected brothers

Art. 30. - if a Brother is dying, another Brother has to stay by his side, not leave him alone and try to call an Elected representative. The sick person has to ask to see an Elected representative of a neighbouring house if there are no presents in his. If the dying is tourmented by scruples, the Elected representative has to reassure him, hear him in confession and declare him freed from all his sins, whatever they are. Never allow that the sick person speaks to a Brother clerk or a layman who is not Elected. The dead man will be buried with its red belt, we shall say fo him the Mass of the Holy Spirit, in red clothes and on the gravestone we shall engrave the oldest sign of the salute, the Pentalpha.
