    Message:: I Greet You Brethren. If you see a man who quietly and modestly moves in the sphere of his life; who, without blemish, fulfills his duty as a man, a subject, a husband and a father; who is pious without hypocrisy, benevolent without ostentation, and aids his fellowman without self-interest; whose heart beats warm for friendship, whose serene mind is open for licensed pleasures, who in vicissitudes does not despair, nor in fortune will be presumptuous, and who will be resolute in the hour of danger; The man who is free from superstition and free from infidelity; who in nature sees the finger of the Eternal Master; who feels and adores the higher destination of man; to whom faith, hope and charity are not mere words without any meaning; to whom property, nay even life, is not too dear for the protection of innocence and virtue, and for the defense of truth; The man who towards himself is a severe judge, but who is tolerant with the debilities of his neighbor; who endeavors to oppose errors without arrogance, and to promote intelligence without impatience; who properly understands how to estimate and employ his means; who honors virtue though it may be in the most humble garment, and who does not favor vice though it be clad in purple; and who administers justice to merit whether dwelling in palaces or cottages. The man who, without courting applause, is loved by all noble-minded men, respected by his superiors and revered by his subordinates; the man who never proclaims what he has done, can do, or will do, but where need is will lay hold with dispassionate courage, circumspect resolution, indefatigable exertion and a rare power of mind, and who will not cease until he has accomplished his work, and then, without pretension, will retire into the multitude because he did the good act, not for himself, but for the cause of good! If you, my Brethren meet such a man, you will see the personification of brotherly love, relief and truth; and you will have found the ideal of a Freemason.

    Message:: My fraternal Greetings to our Brothers. I was with the Grand Lodge of the Philippines (GLP)for more than 10 years as I joined between 1995 and 1996. I'm a Past Master of Indang Lodge No. 115 located at Indang, Cavite(year 2000) and Past Lodge Inspector of Pilar Lodge no. 8 (appointed by GLP in 2001. Because of issues the Grand Lodge of the Philippines can not address such as unjustified suspensions and expulsions by then GM Yu, another Grand Lodge called The Independent Grand Lodge of the Philippine Islands was born comprising of brothers who were victims of GM Romy Yu's unmasonic acts. Instead of addressing the issues surrounding him during the time he "campaigned" as Junior Warden of GLP by which brothers from Cavite brought about the charges of electioneering, with a stroke of his hand issued certain unreasonable edicts failing to maintain harmony among masons on Philippine soil. I really would appreciate communication from a brother/s from your end. For all we know, we meet, act and part the same way. I hope that thru this, our brothers from abroad will be enlightened on issues and concerns haunting Philippines Masonry until today. All we can do at the Independent Grand Lodge of the Philippine Isalnds at the moment is to live by example what and who a true and real mason is. My fraternal Greeting again and thanks for this opportunity.

    Message:: I am interested in researching my Masonic genealogy back to Germany prior to 1856. My grandfather and great grandfather were Masons in Minnesota (Minneapolis). I am curious how I might discover if I had German ancestors who might have been Masons in German Lodges. Are there still records there?

    Message:: My great Great Grandfather was a Jr. Councilor for the McAdenville Council 10 in North Carolina. I recently found an old medal of his. It has the Freemason Arm and Hammer symbol and it says Jr.O.U.A.M. on it. can you tell me what this means? I am very interested.

    [Webmaster's note: The "Jr.O.U.A.M." is the Junior Order of United American Mechanics, not a Masonic body at all.]

    Message:: I am and have been interested since childhood in becoming a mason. Born 1981, in Greenville,SC,my step DAD, Harold D. Gentry, is a mason and i attended a lodge with him as a youngster. Since moving to ohio i have truly sought the meaning of life and learned what it means to stand on my own two feet and survive legally as a man, and to be at peace with myself. Howevever, upon my own opinion and past self destruction, i dont think i am eligiable.(hope im wrong) Meaning i have done very bad things in life as far as my criminal record goes. The worst being bank robbery. I have accepted that life is about choices and not predestined, and have since then tried to better myself thru society, although many doors have been slammed shut to me. Even the Government wont let me join the services, and my past decisions anger me because of all the mistakes i made as a young adult. However, i stay morally stong, ambitious, and in hope of meeting the Right One in helping me in ! all my distress and suffering. I am in the process of obtaining a petition from the Youngstown Masonic Temple, but am discouraged by my own self-pity and embarrassed by my criminal record. THis website has been the most helpful and True doctrine i have encountered.(thanx to the creator)~I will be a great tool and strive to be a topknotch Mason if ever given the chance, because i care about the community and well-being of family and others. I volentarily ask to be contacted and asked about my upcoming process on becoming a Mason. Peace~Love
