February 2024 Message

As we stumble through the darkness of winter, let brotherly love for one another relieve those in distress. The truth that comes to us through decency and compassion to our fellow man lights our path and keeps us steadfast on our journey to cultivate harmony and live in peace with all men.

On February 14th, we celebrate those nearest and dearest to our hearts. We shower them with flowers and candy and we proclaim our unwavering love for them. The word love is part of our Masonic faith. Brotherly love is a tenant of the craft and has been described as “wondrous “. It is one of the pillars that raises Masonry above all other organizations. We all have taken the first regular step alone but we are never alone again. We work together, we guide each other, and we learn from each other.

Some brothers challenge us and some brothers champion us. While we might not always agree with each other’s opinions and we might even become frustrated with each other, it is our love of the craft that draws us closer and it’s our love for each other that makes us stronger.

I find it humbling that no matter where I am in the world I can walk into a Lodge and find that the brethren are there for me as I am for them. Our hearts are open to each other and for our love of the craft. Let us embrace our time together and love our brothers.
