Ritual description from AMORC, Grand Lodge posting.
BRING A HANDSIZED STONE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE SYMBOLIC PYRAMID BUILDING!!
Worldwide, the Autumn Equinox is associated with the harvest, remembrance of times past, and appreciation for those who have gone before us. Rosicrucians mark this time of year with a special memorial ceremony honoring all the past initiates who have dedicated their lives to carry on the Rosicrucian teachings and traditions down through the centuries. With non-Rosicrucian friends and family invited, this memorial ceremony acknowledges the many contributions and ongoing dedication of past initiates to our Rosicrucian heritage.
The Rosicrucian Memorial Ceremony celebrates the long and august history of our tradition and recognizes all those,who over the centuries, have preserved and perpetuated it.
This Ceremony has also been referred to as the ‘Rosicrucian Pyramid Building Ceremony’, because together we shall build a small symbolic pyramid to represent the part that each one of us can play in realizing the mission of our Order, which is to preserve and perpetuate the Rosicrucian tradition for the good of all humanity, all beings, and our planet.
We will also take a moment to reflect upon our own moral and spiritual growth and what we can do to contribute.
The evening will conclude with refreshments and an opportunity to network with others interested in the advancement of humanity through a greater understanding of natural and spiritual laws.
(If you would bring an extra stone for another who may have forgotten, it would be appreciated.)
