Wardens and Brethren,
As our January regular communication
approaches, I have the pleasure of wishing
you all a very Happy New Year even as my
Masonic year comes to a close. But
although we are almost done with the labors,
there is yet one more thing to do.
In our January meeting, we will be raising
Brother Patrick Mahoney-Balestrucci to the
sublime degree of Master Mason. As the
Brothers and I have been working diligently
to squeeze in what practices we can during
the holidays and our own time, I have had
ample opportunity to reflect on the manifold
meanings of our greatest ritual. I think I can
speak for all the present officers when I say
that this is a labor of love and sacrifice,
much like that of our lost Grand Master.
As Solomon's temple bound Israel to God in
both a physical and spiritual way, so too, I
think, does our recapitulation of the story of
its construction bind us all closer together as
Brothers, and to the Great Creator in the
I eagerly look forward to your attendance
and participation in this degree!
Master, Franklin Lodge #20
