Freemasonry as a Sacred Retreat

Posted by Bryan South on October 31, 2013 at 5:30am 2 Comments

Brethren all,

Concerning making changes in Freemasonry and/or attempting to define Freemasonry as a social club and community service organization...

In the installation of officers the Master is admonished; "You admit that it is not in the power of any man, or body of men, to make innovations in the body of Masonry."

In the anteroom lecture we are asked "Do you seriously declare upon your honor that you will cheerfully conform to all the ancient usages and established…

I SEE YOU HAVE TRAVELED SOME

"That when thy summons comes to join the innumerable caravan, which moves to that 
Mysterious realm, where each shall take his chamber in the silent halls of death, 
Thou go not, like the quarry-slave at night, scourged to his dungeon, 
But sustained and soothed by an unfaltering trust, approach thy grave 
Like one who wraps the drapery of his couch About him, and lies down to pleasant dreams."

Brother Dervin Oliver Isaacs

"AKA FEATHERS"

June 20th 1959 - May 1 2013

When twilight fades and day is done and eyes just close like the setting sun,
a weary soul lies down to rest, 
it's God's own way, he  knoweth best.

I SEE YOU HAVE TRAVELED SOME

Brother Remus Jones

- June 14th 2013

We shall meet, but we shall miss them, There will be the vacant chair,

But though we no longer possess them, Still our hearts their memory bear.

But a while ago we gathered, Now the golden cord is severed,

they have passed to realms on high.

I SEE  YOU HAVE TRAVELED SOME
