Good ritual engenders a great candidate experience.  One that the candidate will long remember and ultimately, through application of Masonic principles, give great joy and meaning.  That is the intent of ritual  -  to lay a solid foundation to grow the principles of the Craft.
But, as is often said, ritual is not enough.  Without further study, direct involvement in the lodge and the feeding of the mystic tie, the new Mason doesn’t have much chance to succeed in Masonry on his own.
Is your Lodge (or is our Scottish Rite) helping its members, new and old alike, to achieve Masonic success?
