Order of Saint Joseph - Ascended Master Teachings
When Saint Germain introduced the Order of Saint Joseph on July 4, 1986, he delivered a passionate message about the all-important mission of publishing and preserving the Word:
"Thus, I tell you that the Order of Saint Joseph is an order of publishing the Word for the care of the little Child Jesus in every heart. I, who gave my life and suffered more than I would tell to deliver to the world my writings of science and freedom and the psychology of Good and Evil in the [Shakespearean] plays, beloved, I know the power of the printed Word to endure beyond those who dedicate themselves to its publication.
"You who would survive in the minds of a people who may awaken ten centuries from now because you have preserved freedom today, I tell you, secure the books and secure the places in men's hearts where the teaching will endure even though heaven and earth pass away.
"We publish books not for the survival of books, beloved, but for the survival of souls lifetime after lifetime who do not forget the cumulative effect of the culture of the heart."
