As a Master Mason you must travel. You must walk the dust of this planet, carrying inside you the light of truth and wisdom that you have acquired from your lodge and from your Creator. For this journey, the Craft has given you its most precious tool: the trowel. The trowel is that tool a stone mason uses to smooth the cement in between bricks, to draw the structure together and unify it as one sturdy construction. For you it is the same.
You are a Mason. You carry with you a light, passed down by our forefathers across generations. It is a spark of the Divine, a torch in the darkness. A beacon to lead our people to the Promised Land. As you make your way here on this mortal coil, you are spreading that light from place to place, heart to heart. The trowel is the call to spread brotherly love and truth amongst all those you meet.
The cement that binds our brotherhood together as a unified species, a whole and complete earth, is love. Love is Light. It’s Truth and Wisdom. Spread it with smiles and hugs and handshakes. Nurture it by making children laugh and old widows smile. Bring people together in acts of cooperation and build communities on this sense of unity. That’s how we modern masons build our world up from rocks and cement. From hearts and minds and brotherly love.
Go forth, young man. Travel the dust spreading light.
