Greetings!!!

“TODAYS MASONRY, TOMORROW’S CONTINUITY: Brotherly Love, Relief & Truth as Edifice in Bridging Freemasonry in the Next Millennium”Welcome to Mt. Mainam Lodge No. 49, F. & A. M. website!!!

My presence here  today is a proof  that you  are my  true strength.  I never expected that I will be here as the worshipful master  this Masonic year 2013.  I never imagined that I would be  tasked   with   continuing   the   mission   of   this   fraternal organization.   I  never  entertained  the  ambition  to   be   the symbol  of  brotherhood,   and  to  inherit  the   great   task   of leadership.

For I know that Freemasonry is a voluntary association of men, a fraternal society.  It is  a system of moral conduct, and a way of life.  It is religious in its  character,  teaches the Golden Rule and  morality  through  symbolism.    It  uses  secret  rites  and ceremonies.  It  is  based  on  a firm belief in the Fatherhood of God,   the  Brotherhood  of  Man   and  the  Immortality  of  the Soul. Its great tenets are: Brotherly love, Relief, and Truth.

 

Today,  we,  Masons  are  working  hand  in  hand  for the preservation  of our freedom,  equality, unity and peace. Truly, the  words  Masonry  is  in  our hearts.  Perhaps if more Masons were  involved  in  our  government  our  dream of unity will be hastened. But many seem to be content with following the blind rather than leading them. 

 

As Masons,  we should lead by example,  give back to our communities,  and support  numerous  Masonic  philanthropies. Let  us  invest  in  children,  to  our  neighborhoods, and for our future.  Do not ask what the  organization  can  do for you,  but what you can do for our brotherhood. We are here to serve and not to lord over the others.  Let us be ethical,  honest, and true public servants.  

 

My hope is that when I leave this office, everyone can say that  we  have  traveled  far on the right path,  and that we are able to bequeath  a  better future  to the next  generation.  Join me in continuing our mission. Brethren together let us bring the glory of Mt. Mainam Lodge...

 

Thank you and long live for our brotherhood!

 

Long Live Freemasonry!

 

Long live Mt. Mainam Lodge!!!
