R. Ambelain – Le Martinisme (1946) Translated by Piers A. Vaughan (2002)
“Receive, O Lord, according to the wishes of the Unknown Philosopher, our Master, the homage which we Thy Servants here present offer to Thee in this place. May this mysterious Light enlighten our spirits and our hearts, as they shone upon the works of our Masters in olden times. May these Flambeaux illuminate the Brothers, assembled at Thy call, with their living clarity, and may their presence constantly be a living witness of their union…” And so, in the manner adopted by our Masters in olden times, let the Symbolsmanifest!”
