New Lieutenant of the Order of Malta

Frá John T. Dunlap, member of the Sovereign Council and Order of Malta, American Association, was appointed as the Lieutenant of the Grand Master of the Sovereign Order of Malta by Pope Francis this morning.
 
Frá John T. Dunlap succeeds Frá Marco Luzzago who passed away on June 7th last week. He will be sworn in on June 14th in the Church of Santa Maria in Aventine in front of Cardinal Silvano Maria Tomasi and the Sovereign Council of the Order of Malta after Frá Marco Luzzago’s solemn funeral. The new Lieutenant Grand Master together with the Pope’s Special Delegate and the Sovereign Council will continue the process of constitutional reform of the Sovereign Order of Malta.
 
His arms were granted by the Governor General of Canada to his late father in 2003. They are now quartered with the arms of the Order of Malta.

    The rendering is incorrect. Order of Malta Grand Masters and Lieutenants of the Grand Master have gold rosaries, not black. Also there should be three pendent beads holding the Cross of the Order not two. The Rule governing this was approved by the Order in 1879. Sadly, it is often ignored even by otherwise competent heraldry experts.
