A Brother Asks... Who was the Widow?
A Brother Asks: I know who the widows son is, but who's the widow?
My Response: Like so many other things that are presented to us in Allegorical form, it, "The Widow" to whom the son is connected, is not a who; it is a what.
When you know to what it is that the "Widow" is referring, it also tells you what you need to focus upon to become its offspring.
Should you want to pursue this in depth, I recommend you look at the intimate connection between the words "Winnow" and "Widow".
Afterward ask yourself, what widowing are you required to do through your Masonic Journey from Profane to Mastery and what must you actively participate in to achieve that Mastery?
