Calvin Coolidge once said:
“It has not been my fortune to know very much of Freemasonry, but I have had the great fortune to know many Freemasons and have been able in that way, judge the Tree by its Fruit. I know of your high ideals. I have seen that you hold your meetings in the presence of the open Bible, and I know that men who observe that formality have high sentiments of citizenship, of worth, and character. That is the strength of our Commonwealth and our Nation.”
Virtues we live by
We as Masons live by Virtues that we incorporate into our everyday lives. The four Cardinal Virtues which are Temperance, Fortitude, Prudence and Justice and represent the foundation of natural morality. At the end of the day, living by the Cardinal Virtues will bring each of us honor, and a reputation that is untarnished. Alternatively, failing to heed the teachings of these virtues can lead to a life of sadness, one where we are left trying to rebuild that which we once had. For our Lodges, as long as we govern ourselves by using the Cardinal Virtues as a guide, then we will continue to stand the test of time. We will, through our actions, ensure that the detractors of Freemasonry are overshadowed by the truth of Freemasonry. These Four Cardinal Virtues of Freemasonry provide a framework for daily living and serve as a guide for our relationship with God and our fellow man. As new Masons we must begin to develop and strengthen these virtues, which will help us grow and develop into better men. As experienced Masons, we should constantly remind ourselves of these virtues and their importance in our lives.
