HH, Sir Godfrey Gregg GCO
the rituals of the Mystical Court defines Prudence as our calling to regulate our lives and actions agreeably to the dictate of reason, and says that prudence is that habit by which we wisely judge, and prudentially determine, on all things relative to our present, as well as our future happiness.
When we make prudent decisions we have taken time to thoughtfully consider the implications of our choice, both on ourselves and others,
The Mystical Court calls us to think about our choices and their implications instead of making rash or hot-headed decisions,
Prudence reminds us to reflect upon the moral and social consequences of our activities and our relationship with God.
