Come From A Lodge of The Holy St. John
by Ed Halpaus
From “The Lost Key” by Brother Prentiss Tucke
The following quote from this book is I think appropriate to be repeated to commemorate St. John the Baptist Day, June 24th. It appears that Brother Tucker is quoting something from a time earlier than when he wrote his book, which was in 1927
“The statement that the candidate has ‘come from a Lodge of the Holy Sts. John at Jerusalem’ may be put thus:
‘All my life, up to very recently, I have been living at peace, contented with that spiritual and moral teaching which was given me. But then there came a change and somehow I felt there was a higher teaching which I might have could I only find it. This feeling of dissatisfaction disturbed me and I began to look for this wonderful instruction which I felt would do me so much good. Finally my intuition led me to the door of the Masonic Lodge and I felt, somehow, that within that Lodge I would receive the wisdom-teaching which I craved. My course thus far is symbolic of that well known passage of Scripture, ‘seek and ye shall find, ask and ye shall receive, knock and it shall be opened unto you."
