That’s a good question ?


Why is “Brotherly Love, Relief, and Truth” so important to Freemasonry?
These three virtues are the foundations upon which Freemasonry is built.


Brotherly Love is directed towards all mankind and especially to other Masons.


Relief, in that every Mason is obligated to relieve the suffering of any Master Mason they encounter who is in dire need, and if in their power to do so, to the best of their ability, Also to act charitably towards society, giving of themselves to better the common good. 


Truth, which is represented by the Divine in its multiplicity and diversity, as understood by all men. 


These three ideas represent the core upon which Freemasonry focuses in its ultimate distillation, in that Freemasonry does not hold one faith above another, but rather, it sees faith itself as the common denominator between all faiths.

As Masons we should be known as men to whom hypocrisy and deceit are unknown, who deal honestly and fairly with all men, who promote each other’s welfare, and who are happy rather than jealous of each other’s prosperity.

Did You Know…


Dutch Masons have a very wonderful saying in their initiation ceremony of an Entered Apprentice.


The phrase “Op U komt het aan” is spoken at a very special moment and means (more or less) ‘It is up to you’.


It is then up to YOU as an EA, FC or a MM to begin building yourself; to begin contributing to your World, your Society and to your Craft.

 It is up to YOU to seek and to knock; but also to answer and open the door when others need you.


We must never forget that the strength of the chain is in the weakest link; and we must therefore be reminded to not become complacent in our endeavours to continuously build and strive for that perfect ashlar.
