I hope and pray this message finds you and your
family well and in good health.
My Brothers in a recent conversation with
another Worshipful Master of the District he
reminded me of what I think all the Brethren
should be reminded of and that is “You sought
out the Lodge” not “the Lodge sought you out”.
By whatever means you came to Masonry You
are the one who offered yourself to it, and by
this (and I hope) you must have felt that you
could offer or even gain from becoming a
Freemason for me it is the verbiage and
mechanics of the ritual. We often use some very
weighty words and language in our ritual, but
these words give a resounding truth to the many
allusions they may have. I quote “A midst its
concerns and employments forget not the duties
you have heard so frequently inculcated”, or
more simply put, the core work is the obligation
instilled. A Brother does not have to look far to
find the Light that the Lodge and Freemasonry
has to offer he just needs to be willing to give of
himself and it will present itself to him. With
that said, I ask this question of you, have you
offered anything to Eclipse Lodge lately or are
you satisfied with the light you had?
Lastly Brothers, I do truly mean it when I say I
look forward to seeing you all in Lodge. I
encourage you all to come out and support us as
we uphold the work that so many of you started.
May God’s Light find and bless you all.
