A technical Masonic term which signifies to make valid or legal. Hence one who has received a Degree in an irregular manner or from incompetent authority is not recognized until he has been healed. The precise mode of healing depends on circumstances If the Lodge which conferred the Degree was clandestine, the whole ceremony of initiation would have to be repeated. If the authority which conferred the Degree was only irregular, and the question was merely a technical one of legal competence, it is only necessary to exact an obligation of allegiance, or in other words to renew the covenant.

“I just wanted to drop you a line to say that I received my pens today and they are far more than I expected. I bought one for me and one for my 40+ year Mason Dad. I am sure he is going to love it.
Great job and thanks for such a high quality product.”
