At the recent session of the Supreme Council Southern Jurisdiction, Sovereign Grand Commander Ill. Ronald Seale, 33°, announced that the Southern Jurisdiction would recognize the Prince Hall Scottish Rite. At the announcement of the step, the SGC for the Northern Jurisdiction jumped on the bandwagon, agreeing to do the same.
The bottom line is that Masonry just got better. The invisible lines that separate Prince Hall Masonry from what many call “mainstream” Masonry are slowly getting erased. Now all we need is a better term than “mainstream” or “traditional” to describe what has traditionally been white Masonry. I guess we will get there. For now, I will be happy with this development.
This has actually motivated me to consider rejoining the Scottish Rite. This is a huge development and worthy of support.
