THE OBLIGATION OF THE WORSHIPFUL MASTER
Perhaps there is no obligation more sacred than that taken by the one who is to become Worshipful Master.
The traditions, the tenets and principles, and all the precious possessions of Masonry, and even the responsibility vested in the lodge by the Grand Lodge, are placed in the hands of the Worshipful Master.
To be a good man and true, and strictly to obey the moral law, is the basis for all other of the Ancient Charges to which the Master-elect must give his assent. Every officer "in line" should read these questions many times before he is asked them officially. They will serve in some measure to answer the question: "Will I be able to live up to the regulations as Masters have done in the past?"
The weight of the true answers to these questions exceeds beyond the lodge room. The responsibility is to society and to country, in addition to the accepted responsibilities which are connected with degree work and the regular business of the lodge.
What relation is there between the obligation of the Worshipful Master and the brethren? When any brother takes upon himself such a sacred obligation, it is the duty of every other brother to give him every cooperation in helping him to discharge that obligation.
The Worshipful Master should have our good wishes, our prayers, and the work of our hands and heart in all his laudable and important undertakings.
