-some thoughts from Ben….

ben_franklinFreemasonry has tenets peculiar to itself. They serve as testimonials of character and qualifications, which are only conferred after due course of instruction and examination.

These are of no small value; they speak a universal language, and act as a passport to the attentions and support of the initiated in all parts of the world. They cannot be lost as long as memory retains its power. Let the possessor of them be expatriated, shipwrecked or imprisoned, let him be stripped of everything he has got in the world, still those credentials remain, and are available for use as circumstances require.

The good effects they have produced are established by the most incontestable facts of history. They have stayed the uplifted hand of the destroyer; they have softened the asperities of the tyrant; they have mitigated the horrors of captivity; they have subdued the rancor of malevolence; and broken down the barriers of political animosity and sectarian alienation.

On the field of battle, in the solitudes of the uncultivated forest, or in the busy haunts of the crowded city, they have made men of the most hostile feelings, the most distant regions, and diversified conditions, rush to the aid of each other, and feel a special joy and satisfaction that they have been able to afford relief to a Brother Mason.

Open House on April 11

Tuesday, March 24th, 2015

St. Louis Missouri Lodge #1 is pleased to announce there will be an Open House event on Saturday, April 11 from 2-6 pm at the Rose Hill Masonic Temple in Creve Coeur. The event is designed for the general public to meet the members of St. Louis Lodge#1, learn about the masonic fraternity, and to take a tour of the inside of the temple.

Rose Hill Temple’s meeting room is one of the most beautifully decorated rooms in the country with all four of its 20′ high walls and ceiling adorned with brightly colored murals hand-painted by the late Sonny Cohen.

The final program of events will be released shortly and it will surely be an exciting one.

The temple is located at 11122 Olive Blvd, Creve Coeur, MO. This is just 1.6 miles east of the I-270 and Olive Blvd interchange.
