Open Your Own Lodge!

A craftsman left his master’s lodge and went to visit Grand Master Hiram Abif in Tyre. Hiram asked: “What do you seek?”

“Light!” replied the craftsman.

“You have your own lodge. Why did you come here?” Hiram asked.

The craftsman replied: “I left my master’s lodge, so where is my lodge now?”

Hiram answered: “What you are asking is your lodge.”

The craftsman was brought to light. Ever since he has urged his brothers: “Open your own lodge and see the light!”
