Great Architect of the Universe, in a world where many are lonely, we thank you for our Brotherhood. In a world where many are despairing, we thank you for Hope. In a world that many find meaningless, we thank you for Faith. In a world where many are hungry, we thank you for this food. Help us remember that Corn, Wine, and Oil are emblematical of Nourishment, Refreshment, and Joy and teaches Masons this important lesson… That we should be ever-ready to nourish the needy, refresh the destitute, and pour the oil of joy in the hearts of the afflicted.
