Master of the Lodge

Q. Why should a Master of a Lodge be well informed?

A. Because, if Masonry be as it is defined, "a science of morality, clothed in allegory and illustrated by symbols," it is evident that a successful teacher (and the Master is, in an emphatic sense, a teacher) must qualify himself by a diligent investigation of these symbols and veiled allegories — the myths and legends of Masonry — their mystical application, and the whole design of the institution in this, its most important feature, must constitute his study. — ( St. Mark 10:17 )
