Congratulations - the Order of St Gregory the Great

Congratulations from the Grand Priory of Great Britain 
H.E. Jan Count Dobrzenský z Dobrzenicz, 50th Grand Master of The Order 
on his appointment as 
Knight Commander of the Order of Gregory The Great. 

The Order is given to those gentlemen of proven loyalty to the Holy See who, by reason of their nobility of birth and the renown of their deeds or the degree of their munificence, are deemed worthy to be honoured by a public expression of esteem on the part of the Holy See. They must progressively maintain, by continued meritorious deed, the reputation and trust they had already inspired, and prove themselves worthy of the honour that has been conferred on them, by unswerving fidelity to God and to the Sovereign Pontiff.

Seen here in Prague on Saturday presenting the award at his Archiepiscopal Palace is Dominik Cardinal Duka Chaplain General of The Order of St.Lazarus.
