"Freemasonry is an initiatory society
dedicated to the study of universal problems.
Through its symbolism and its philosophic
approach, it teaches Freemasons their true
relationship to Nature and to Humankind.
It is an Alliance based on solidarity between
all human beings."
Freemasonry opens its doors to all people
of good will who wish to take part in the moral and
intellectual improvement of humanity.
Freemasonry does not discriminate on the basis of
race, religion or belief, opinion, wealth or social
standing. It demands only that its members be sincere
in their search for truth and devoted to the well being
of their fellow men and women. It is a school
for wisdom, love and harmony.
Freemasons’ motto is : Liberty
. Equality . Fraternity
The duties of a Freemason are: to think and speak
well; to do good; to pursue truth; to learn
in the Lodges the practice of liberty, equality,
fraternity and apply it in daily life; to
assist in mankind’s progress by studying
the great moral and social problems; and
to propagate fundamental Masonic ideals.
Freemasonry’s moral principles are common to all
people and applicable in all situations. No limits are
imposed on the search for truth. Freemasonry guarantees
complete freedom of thought, refuses dogma and does
not require its members to practice any specific religion
Freemasonry is not affiliated with any sect, nor
does it side with any particular school of thought.
Freemasons are tolerant in all matters philosophical,
religious, social and political, in order to offer a
haven where harmony and love can reign.
In all circumstances, Masons are duty bound to help,
assist and protect one another and to fight injustice.
A Mason must always remember that each human being is
a brother or a sister.
Freemasonry requires all its members to obey
the rules of their Lodges and the laws of the country
in which they are free to gather.
Freemasons consider work as a human imperative.
