AS THE SUN RISES IN THE  EAST……………

 

Brethren,

It is an honor to be entrusted to serve as Master and to lead this Lodge. As the newly installed Worshipful Master along with a new District Inspector and a new Officers Coach I look forward to a productive and a successful Masonic Year.  

 

I would like to take this time to thank our Past Master, Worshipful Ernesto Mercado, for his service to the Lodge and our former Officers Coach, Worshipful Milton Ott for his dedicated years of coaching us.

 

January has been a very busy month and I want to thank all the brothers for their contributions in any ways and those who helped in during the January 14 Installation of Officers. I cannot say thank you enough to all and we couldn't have done this without you.

 

On January 20, 2017, we purposely and successfully conferred the First Degrees of Masonry upon Brothers Pablo Tamoro and Robert Molera. Congratulations to our newest Entered Apprentices for having passed through the ceremonies of their initiations. Let's welcome them and guide them make the beginning of their journey memorable for all the right reasons.

 

One of my goals this year is to make Suisun Lodge No. 55 a better place to be a member of and a better place for its brothers to spend time like attending Stated Meetings and other special events. I encourage our members to come join us for dinner at our February Stated Meeting. Your presence during these times adds up to the success of our Lodge.

 

Bro. Charlie Foronda 

Worshipful Master

AS THE SUN IS IN WEST……

EXPECTATIONS—BY YOU, OF THE FRATERNITY AND VICE VERSA

Some things to consider about Freemasonry and personal responsibility.  If one important purpose of Freemasonry is “to make good men better,” a man should become a Freemason only if he is pure of heart and conscience and considers himself capable of actually becoming a better man. That’s not as simple as it sounds. Determining the basic moral, mental, and in the not-so-distant past, the physical qualifications of men seeking admission to the craft was, and continues to be, an essential aspect of upholding the integrity and viability of our ancient institution. The investigative procedures of modern Masonic lodges are designed to ensure that the brethren of the lodge have sufficient information about the moral qualifications and character of the candidates they vote on to receive the privileges of Freemasonry.

Masonic ritual is intended to be performed in a solemn manner to provide the most meaningful experience possible for the candidates and the membership alike. Creating an atmosphere that may lead to a positive transformation of the individual is the goal of Masonic ritual. Time between degrees should be used for intellectual study, contemplation, and self-development. Ideally, candidates should demonstrate some degree of improvement in their understanding of Freemasonry before being advanced to the next degree. When this goal is properly observed, every Mason grows into a better man and the bonds of virtue that tie together the brotherhood of humanity are strengthened. It is intended, and indeed essential, that lodges provide their candidates with proper instruction about the teachings and symbols of Freemasonry. Qualified Master Masons are encouraged and, in fact, by virtue of their obligation, required to provide Masonic instruction to their less-informed and less-experienced brethren in the form of individual mouth-to-ear instruction, presentations, answering questions, and promoting discussion. You are enjoined to remember that the main focus of a Mason’s intellectual, spiritual, and philosophical development should be on applying the teachings of Freemasonry in his daily life. Freemasonry helps teach the importance and benefits of personal honor, integrity, duty, and service. If every Mason works hard and takes responsibility in all he does, then Masonry will thrive. As a new Mason, you should never lose sight of the fact that in a very real sense, we, your brothers, have placed the future of Freemasonry in your hands. Masons are expected to attend as many stated meetings, degree nights, and other activities of their lodge as their time and abilities permit. Masonic participation is mutually beneficial both to the individual Mason as well as to the other brethren of the lodge. Good fellowship is an important aspect of Masonry. The bonds that unite Masons together grow stronger with each shared moment, event, and discussion.
