National celebrations such as Canada Day (July 1) and Independence Day (July 4) remind Knights of their duty to exemplify the virtue of patriotism — recognized as the Order’s fourth principle since 1900, with the establishment of the Fourth Degree. In remarks on Patriots’ Day this past April, Supreme Knight Patrick Kelly noted, “Whichever nation he calls home, a brother Knight is a patriot. He serves his homeland; he preserves life and liberty; and he proclaims the truth.”
