I am now Templar-fied.


Went through the York Rite degrees over the past few days (oy!) and am now exhausted to say that I am now a Knight Templar. :)

I can't help but think that every Mason who is a Christian should aspire to, and go for, that degree.

But... man. SOOO many new passwords, grips, signs and due guards. AIIEEE!!!

It was a spectacular couple of days, and I can't wait for an opportunity to see them again from the sidelines of someone who can afford to watch and enjoy and learn as opposed to someone just trying to take it all in for the first time.

I admit (I've said it before) that the term "Sir Knight" weirds me out. As a form of address (e.g., "Sir Knight, how are you today?") it's perfectly fine, as "sir" is a term of address. But as a term of reference (e.g., "There are five Sir Knights here today") it's grammatically WRONG, as, again, "sir" is a term of address, not reference. The term of reference is, simply, "KNIGHT." But, I guess, it's something I'll just have to live with as one of the (many many many) Masonic idiosyncrasies. ;)
