 In the prologue of Teutonic Order's Book it reads:
"Real Knighthood does not only know the time-bound form of swordplay, 
which has passed; the actual composure of chivalrous men is rather 
expressed in their commitment for the Lord's Kingdom, for protecting 
the defenseless, for helping the maltreated, those beset, the condemned
 and those in need." It is the pronounced goal of the Knights, Brothers,
 Sisters and Marian Associates of the German Order to jointly implement
 this composure, abiding by the Order's motto "Helping and Healing".
