Mission again

Went back to Mission lodge to see the same candidate* raised to the sublime degree of Master Mason.

It was quite an experience. Particularly the second part, which is the mystical drama concerning a central Masonic figure, was quite a show. Again, ritually this was so different from the Swedish Rite that it may as well have been a completely different thing. (Although the basic story is the same.) A big thank you to everyone at Mission for making me feel welcome, and for putting on such a quality degree.

*) Said candidate also has a really fine blog on his Masonic journey: Sarastro’s Temple. Update: He has now posted on the evening’s events: The Raising.
