    Though many people think of Freemasonry as shrouded in secrecy, nothing could be further from the truth. Freemasons all over the world are proud to show their dedication to the tenets Brotherly Love, Relief, and Truth. Here are a few other qualities that are important to members of this centuries-old fraternity: 

    Education
    Freemasons place great value on educating their members through workshops, reading, seminars, and lectures. In order to become a better man, it’s important that you familiarize yourself with a wide variety of viewpoints and learn as much as you can about a range of topics. You can then use your body of knowledge and wisdom to inform all of your life decisions.

    Leadership
    These days, many people are content to sit on the sidelines and watch others make important decisions. That’s why it’s important that we encourage upstanding individuals to lead. As Masons progress through the Craft, they learn a variety of leadership skills that they can apply at home, in the workplace, and throughout the community.

    Fellowship
    Many of us go through life feeling as if we don’t really belong to any particular group. When you join the Freemasons, however, you join a global network of men who share your moral and metaphysical outlook, despite having come from very different backgrounds.

    Charity
    Since the organization’s beginning, Masons have made charity a top priority. There are millions of disenfranchised individuals who need help. This is why Freemasons give roughly $3 million a day to charities all over North America. Masons are also very involved in all sorts of .

    If these qualities describe the sort of man you currently are or would like to become, then you might make an excellent Freemason. To learn more about how to become a brother, call the Grand Lodge of Masons in Massachusetts at (857) 233-0563.

    An Inside Look at Freemason Rituals and Secrets

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Learning the truth about Freemasonry reveals an organization built on community and inclusivity. Explore how propagated misinformation clouds the real nature of this philanthropic organization.

    • Principals of Secrecy: Many people think that the Freemasons are steeped in secrecy and shadow. This couldn’t be further from the truth! In fact, most tenets of Masonic membership have been published for centuries in newspapers, at the Library of Congress, and online. It is true that Masons take an oath to limit conversation about these tenets among non-members. However, those who wish to know more can do so by visiting a lodge with a Mason friend.

    • Behind the Rituals: Main components of Mason membership, such as handshakes and passwords, are used as a way to honor the traditions of stonemasonry guilds. These early guilds and their practices form the foundation of the Masonic organization. Passwords and handshakes are used not as a form of exclusion, but as a way for Masons to universally recognize one another outside the lodge. Likewise, Masonic rituals are initiation ceremonies that give new members opportunities to display their commitment to the principles of the organization. Maintaining relative secrecy of these practices is merely used as a way to instill a sense of fraternity among lodge members.

    • Joining the Order: Following in the footsteps of George Washington and Benjamin Franklin is as easy as starting a conversation. Candidate initiation is handled by local lodges through of petition signed by a Mason friend or family member. Simply visiting a local lodge will give you an opportunity to meet and converse with local Masons. Relationships built with these members will help you earn a friend who is happy to sign your petition.
