            In Ancient Craft Masonry there were three degrees to include the Holy Royal Arch. The Holy Royal Arch was conferred upon on Masters of Lodges Only. Today the degree has been separated and is part of the York Rite. It is in the Royal Arch Degree that the “Lost Word” of a Master Mason is recovered. These degrees complete the Ancient Craft Masonry that was begun when the candidate first entered the inner door of a Masonic Lodge.
