What are you doing to give to the benevolence fund? Your Masonic lodge, or your district, may have monies set aside to help someone in need. Since we can’t hold Masonic meetings, we can’t raise money the usual way. I’ve self-published a small book, and proceeds will go to benevolence funds. The official motto of our Grand Lodge is ‘Audi, Vide, Tace’. I’ve traced its history. Did you know it was accepted for the Seal of United Grand Lodge of England when some fellows met at a tavern on a Tuesday night in 1814?
I was hoping to make an announcement of a new publication at a significant event. Instead I’ll make this announcement here. ‘Audi, Vide, Tace – an Explanation’ is now available!
This small book is the result of my questions about the motto of the Grand Lodge of Canada in the Province of Ontario. I followed the “five W’s” of an investigation. Who, what, when, where, and why? I’ve also explored both an understanding for historians and the public, as well as the esoteric understanding achieved by a Mason who has enjoyed our ritual.
