As you might have read (or not) yesterday I was exalted into HRA. Although I still have not digested the ritual (and the food for that matter!) I have a questions.
Why are we called Companions?
Why Companions - since the 1830 the Royal Arch was regarded as an Order and in some way related to the knightly aspects of Freemasonry especially as it was through the Royal Arch alone one could become a Knight Templar M. The first step into the Knight templar Order was to break bread and receive drink, those entering ie Royal Arch Masons, were called Bread Sharers which is the Latin meaning of "Companion"
What is our company's purpose? Think of the Journey you took - the trials and difficulties that had to be overcome' Reflect on the symbols on the Banners and all they represent.. The purpose of the Royal Arch is to give you more opportunity to understand yourself and grow in confidence and wisdom.
It is a most beautifull and gentle Degree Welcome Whistler
