The Iglesia de la Vera Cruz or Church of the Holy Cross in Segovia, Spain was originally built by the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulcher in the 13th century. It was passed to the Order of St. John of Jerusalem on September 23, 1531 and now remains in it's possession.
A nice, quasi-vintage video on the Order of Malta with some historic footage from 1999 and the anniversary of the founding of the Order which took place on Malta, including a glimpse of the late Fra Freddie. There is also some footage from inside the Magistral Palace with the late Grand Master Fra Andrew Bertie. It also highlights some of the work of the Order in France. Although it is in French the video is still interesting to watch.

https://youtu.be/Hn2_ONm_SFs LE CHEMIN DE RONDE. Le château de Bonaguil est un des derniers châteaux
forts construits. Son nom signifie bonne aiguille et désigne le site
défensif : un promontoire rocheux et escarpé de calcaire, convenant
parfaitement à l'établissement d'un château fort.

Once again Pope Francis demeaned orthodox priests saying they "frighten him." In the same talk to a group of priests that were part of a conference sponsored by the Congregation for Clergy "Pope Francis also encouraged them to be merciful in administering the sacrament of reconciliation, as well as reminding them that apostolic zeal often means they will not have a "private moment" to themselves."
And yet even Jesus broke away from the crowds to spend private moments in prayer. All the spiritual writers are consistent in teaching that souls that spend all their time engaged in activities without giving time to contemplative prayer are deformed.
