    greetings brethren, I am in search of light. I was wondering what are some good sources/websites/books/etc. so that I can further my Masonic education. Especially with regards to PHA.

    I wanted the same, so I joined the York Rite. It was a great choice.

    I'm not being flippant or dismissive when I suggest Freemasonry for Dummies/ Idiots. Then AASR-SJ Master Craftsman Program
