Yes, I’m running as fast as I can. However -“I must run faster to get ahead of my people” 
- Quote from M. Gandhi; as he was trying to develop India from English rule. 
I have always read the articles in the past Rite Word monthly bulletins but never really understood the intensity of the research or the time it must have taken to prepare each article and to get it out in time. It might seem easy to the casual reader but for each new SR Master or Officer it becomes almost overbearing considering all of our additional masonic obligations. Note to Upcoming SJSR future Masters - save your monthly Rite Word bulletins now. You will really need them and your calendar for reference when you are called upon to write your own monthly Rite Word Articles. You will be lost without them.
