Order of Malta elects interim Grand Master amid ongoing reform :: Catholic News Agency (CNA)
Quote:
Vatican City, Apr 29, 2017 / 09:37 am (CNA/EWTN News).-

The Order of Malta elected Fra Giacomo Dalla Torre as their interim Grand Master as the latest move in the ongoing reform their leadership, which the bulk of his one-year mandate will focus on.

Announced in an April 29 communique from the order, the election of Dalla Torre was the result of the Order of Malta’s daylong “Council Complete of State,” which fell shortly after the resignation of the Order’s former Grand Master, Matthew Festing, earlier this year.

Dalla Torre will swear an official oath before Archbishop Giovanni Becciu, the Pope’s special delegate to the Order, and members of the “Council Complete of State” that elected him Sunday, April 30, at the church of Santa Maria in Aventino.

Fra' Giacomo Dalla Torre was elected the 80th grand master of the Knights of Malta May 2 and promised to continue the reform of the order begun last year when he was elected its interim head.

In a solemn procession after morning Mass, 73-year-old Dalla Torre and 53 other leaders of the Knights of Malta — including, for the first time, two women — walked into the order's villa on Rome's Aventine Hill to begin voting for a new leader.

What is the current status of the relationship between the Catholic SMOM and the Protestant spinoffs of the Order of St John of the Hospital of Jerusalem under the protection of the Federal Republic of Germany ( formerly the Crown of Prussia) and of the British, Dutch and Swedish Crowns ?

Second question: are the higher grades of the SMOM still subject to religious vows like poverty, obedience and chastity and are those higher grades still open in practice to members of the nobility only ?

The website of the Order of Malta says that it recognizes four Orders of St. John, among which is a Protestant order with which it has collaborated.

According to the website, yes and yes, albeit members of the nobility no longer comprise the majority of its Knights.
