These ceremonies mark spring for the Scottish Rite, and to quote the Wise Master in the relighting of the lights, "…a season for a reawakening of consciousness, a renewing of our pledges, a reaffirming of our beliefs, a time for a mental inventory of our thoughts and actions, and a rededication of ourselves to those lofty principles taught by Jesus of Nazareth."
The crowd was great, although a little rowdy.
All in all, a great night.
"Peace be with you my friends, and be with you always. Remember that it is better to love than to hate; that our duty is not to be better than others, but to be better than ourselves; and that the more we have, the more we owe to those who need assistance. The peace of our Master be with you always."
