From the East

April Showers have been scarce but Rising Sun is raining candidates and degree work. We are looking for individuals to learn the emblems for the MM degree history as we used to do in the past. If you are interested please see Larry Gullett or Jon Bibeau.

Congratulations to our 2 newest Master Mason’s Alexander Durden and Costin Barbu. We invite each of our newest Master Mason’s who have been raised in the last year to join us at Grand Lodge – it is the usual custom of the Grand Master to greet the newest members of our great fraternity.

To all – please consider making the venture up to Nova Scotia this July. We are in need of assistance and it would be great to have a wonderful showing in support of the fellowship we have shared for over 10 years with John Albro Lodge and our great friends there.

Finally, as Master and as a Member of Rising Sun, I find it incumbent upon me to challenge each of you to find a way you can assist your lodge. There are many tasks, duties, rituals and fundraising that needs your help. The benefits you and I have experienced in the degree work and fellowship are the direct result of sacrifice of those who sat in our seats over the past 194 years. What a great tradition !

THE LIVING TEMPLE
The Canadian Craftsman – March 1898

Rich was the Temple framed of old,
Of Hermon’s cedars, lined with gold,
By princely architect of Tyre:
And bright the flames of sun and fire,
Built many an hundred years ago,
In Ind or Western Mexico.

By fabrics formed by human hand,
Though they in noblest grandeur, stand
On lofty pillars, rich and rare.
Of burnished gold, can ne’er compare
With living temples, pure and fine,
Built by the Architect Divine.

Let us, who live in latter days,
To God a nobler temple raise,
With cornerstone deep laid in youth.
While knowledge, temperance and truth,
In all their fair proportion bind
That noble temple of the mind.

Let fortitude the basis be
And high resolve the plethory;
The stones shall be of reason’s proof,
Celestial love shall form the roof,
And prudence at the threshold stay
To drive each vagrant guest away.

Within shall seven pillars shine,
The purest product of the mine;
Religion, honor, gratitude,
Nor shall the moon and stars by night
Withhold their kind and needful light,
That your work may be finished here
When the Grand Master shall appear.
