“The Order of the Secret Monitor, or Brotherhood of David and Jonathan, is probably the most caring of all Masonic Orders”.
The Order consists of three degrees;
Induction as a ‘Secret Monitor’, is the first, and, graphically describes how Jonathan warned David (in a non-obvious manner, hence Secret Monitor) not to return to King Saul’s household. It is taken from the first Book of Samuel. The lesson in the degree is the importance of friendship and fidelity.
The second is the Princes degree, and tells how David admitted into his band one who had escaped from a massacre carried out at the order of Saul. This is also taken from the First Book of Samuel, and again stresses the continuing importance of friendship and fidelity.
The third Degree is the Installation Ceremony of Supreme Ruler who is the “Master’ of the Conclave It is somewhat unique, in that in addition to the actual Installation Ceremony which is carried out by the Supreme Ruler’s predecessor, there is the Ceremony of Commissioning. The Commissioning must be carried out by a ‘Ruler’. This confers status throughout the entire Order, and a Certificate is issued by Grand Conclave to that effect. The governing body is the Grand Conclave.
You may be surprised to learn that a bow and arrows are used in this Order as well as the usual swords etc. Inter Conclave visiting is encouraged where friendships are made and maintained.
It is not without substance that The Order of the Secret Monitor is often called the Friendly Order’. (This is not to infer that other Orders are not friendly).
