When Saint Barbara of the Tower walked and came unto the side whereas the water descended into the
cistern, she blessed it, and immediately the water was hallowed, in which all they that are sick receive
health, if they have perfect belief. And this cistern is a fountain perpetual which all manner of people,
with whatsoever malady they are grieved or tormented, may go therein.
To serve all manner of people, whether they be of one’s own community or outside it, is a valuable and
selfless act. With this in mind do We, Kasha and Ermenrich, Baroness and Baron of Cynnabar, welcome
Rosalyn MacGregor into Our Order of Saint Barbara of Cynnabar, and may the name of Barbara, the Holy
Helper, bring honor to her deeds. Let none countermand Our words.
