One might hear the word assiduity in great oratory: Thomas Jefferson and Winston Churchill have used it.
Masons hear it during an annual ceremony, where it is part of an instruction.
Assiduity is an obscure word with the several meanings of ‘constant diligence’, and ‘close personal attention or care of a person’. These are traits we expect in those who lead us; that they will always focus on being a leader, and be aware of the needs of the Lodge. Learning from the example of the esteemed Brethren who have gone before us, and demonstrating those abilities to others, is how leadership in our Fraternity offers a path for good men to become better.
