 Why do we use "So mote it be" instead of "Amen"


"so mote it be" are the final words in the  Regius Poem.

"Mote" is old English for "may". Masons have used the 

Phrase since the  beginning of the written history of  

the Craft. Freemasonry includes many other words,   

now obsolete, Which bring the sanctity of age and    

the continuity of ritual from ancient days to           

modern times.
