There is a lodge located in the far outback of Queensland where the brethren though faithful Masons, lack knowledge in receiving visiting brothers properly because of their remotness.
During one of their regular meetings, the Junior Deacon informed the Worshipful Master that there was an alarm at the door, whereupon the Worshipful Master replied “Attend the alarm and report your findings”.
The Junior Deacon opened the door and saw, to his amazement, a brother, impeccably dressed with an elaborate apron and jewels about his chest.
The visitor stated, “My name is John Smith, Past Master of my lodge, Past District Deputy of my district, Past Grand Master of my Grand Lodge, Past Sovereign Grand Commander of the Scottish Rite, York Rite Legion of Honor who humbly requests an audience with the Worshipful Master.”
The Junior Deacon, upon hearing these words from the visiting brother and the elaborate apron and jewels upon his chest, immediately closed the door, returned to his post and informed the Worshipful Master: “Worshipful Master, The Grand Architect of the Universe is at the door!!!”
