Certificate presentation marks Pat’s 60-year career in FreemasonryFebruary 16, 2020
In Lincolnshire we are very privileged in being able to choose from a number of Orders beyond the Craft, worked in many different locations and ceremonies. Whilst it is possible for the Master Mason to join any number of these, as many do, it must put a strain on one’s diary and other personal commitments. We can encourage Master Masons to develop their career in their own way; there is no right or wrong
Each Master Mason is free to choose but perhaps we can agree with the Grand Master that Master Masons should be encouraged to join the Royal Arch first and complete their journey through “Pure and Antient Freemasonry” before exploring other avenues.
In summary, when you are asked the question, why join the RA?
“I wanted to join the Royal Arch because of its indissoluble link with the Craft, it is the completion of the journey through pure and antient Freemasonry, the happy ending to the tragedy which is the Third Degree”
I wanted to join for four main reasons:
The Third Degree leaves us in the air, the RA is the only way to complete your journey through pure and ancient Freemasonry
It takes friendship and brotherhood to an even higher level – Companionship
It invites you and supports you to explore the spiritual nature of man
It has a beautiful Ceremony full of history, allegory and hidden meaning
