Don’t you mean ‘wanted’?

Here is a definition of a word found within Masonic ritual that is not common outside of our Lodge rooms.


The common man asks ‘don’t you mean wanted?’. 

The educated man, and the Mason who has heard this word in our Ritual, understands it to mean a habit.  Indeed, within our Ritual we hear the phrase ‘wonted custom’, which tells us how very important a regular practice is the recurring action being described.  Later in the Ritual the Initiate is reminded to emulate that person who has that ‘wonted custom’. 

We should emulate his fidelity to our Fraternity, and develop our own ‘wonted custom’ that is described in the Ritual.
