TIME FOR STUDY[From The Rosicrucian Digest July 1944]
Where there is no intense desire for study, conciliation with conscience is easily accomplished and an excuse to evade it is provided. What we want, we make sacrifices for. Those, who claim that the demands of the day make it impossible to set aside even sixty minutes once a week for study and the improvement of self, may feel contrite after reading the following letter received by our Department of Instruction:
"Dear Sir and Frater:
I received your letter of recent date, asking if we keep up to date on our monographs. I always read mine the day I receive it, then read it again later in the week. I am working as a tool maker in a defense plant six or seven days a week, ten hours a day, and help my wife at home. She is 64 years old and is not very strong. She is much older than I am excepting in years. I am 67. I have aged very little in the last 10 years since joining the Order. My only regret is that I did not join earlier.
I visit the Benjamin Franklin Chapter as often as possible, and I enjoy meeting the members there very much.
Thanking you for your letter, I am
Sincerely and fraternally,
Frater T. T."
