1. What is Free Masonry?
Free Masonry represents a world wide movement of men or women usually organized
nationally in Grand Lodges.
1.1 Nature of Free Masonry
Free Masons societies can be defined as
- philantropical, that means being for humanity
- philosophical, that means tending towards wisdom
- progressiv, that means looking to the future on the basis of masonic traditions.
The main objectives pursued by the masonic organisations can be defined
- search for truth
- practice of tolerance
- cultivation of solidarity
- incitation to take cognizance of your own
- practice of self control
To join a Free Masons organization the candidate should have - or at least
be willing to acquire - the following properties:
- be tolerant, i.e. not be a sectarian, a fanatic, a visionary but be
open without prejudices to all kinds of ideas
- feel the urge of a further development
- be open minded for rituals and symbols
- have a strong feeling for justice and a sens for humanistic ideals
- be able to accept people from every extraction, race or creed
- be willing to accept the discipline and discretion that are comonly
required in the lodges
- living in normal personal conditions.
2. What Free Masonry is certainly not!
2.1 In a Mason's mind, Free Masonry is neither a religion nor a substitute
for a creed.
In the thinking of Masons there is no room for any dogma. Every honest
person can join a Mason's organization provided he/she respects masonic
rules of tolerance and mutual respects.
2.2 Masonic institutions are not secret societies. Objectives, articles of
association, board etc. are known or can be easily obtained.
Masonic institutions must be considered as being closed and discreet
3. Common objectives but separate ways
Masonic associations were traditionally open for men only.The first feminine
Grand Lodge was founded in France 1945. Feminine lodges are open only to
women and masculine lodges only to men.
