Day 81 out of 100 to Learn Masonic Ritual and we continue our learning of the Third Degree. Yesterday we looked at the Third Degree Obligation for the second time. We continue with
Learning Masonic Ritual, Day 81 of 100: Third Degree Exhortation
We start with the bit of ceremony that immediately follows the Obligation that we covered on Day 69 (pages 178-179 in my book of Emulation Ritual) before going onto the Third Degree Exhortation (pages 180-182).
The bit of ritual that follows the Obligation is quite short and mainly focuses on the position of the Square and Compasses.
The Third Degree Exhortation doesn’t follow any format from the other Degrees so it’s four paragraphs must be learnt by repetition and generally forcing it in.
