The Thirty-first and Thirty-Second Degrees are the last of the Four Bodies and are Official and Ceremonial Degrees. They are the culmination, the summing up as it were, of all of the previous Degrees. The Royal Secret, like the hidden science of the ancients, is concealed even here, but remember, "Faith begins where reason sinks exhausted." The Star of Hope shines for us as it did for the Wise Men of the East some two thousand years ago. Today, as in the first days of creation, good and evil, right and wrong, justice and mercy, balance each other to teach us to remember ourselves as immortal souls, retaining for each other respect and charity while slowly climbing to that hoped-for state of perfection--the final goal for all.
