Visalia Council No. 43
In a response to an article titled Widow Son by an unknown author, the writing was about two separate individuals. It relates to the Grand Master Hiram Abif of our Masonic legend and
Our Hiram Abif was killed by standing steadfast to his principle. Accosted by violence, he paid the price for not divulging information to the unworthy. That was the main story. My Brethren, let me point out that however the sacrifice was in the highest order that was not the lesson in Third Degree. The message is not about holding on to the secret in face of torture and death but it is about losing and searching for something very important. A concept that one has to travel from West to East on the journey to a better life.
