 The four virtues

The above are the four Cardinal Virtues we hear of in the 1st Degree Charge and are represented by the four tassels at each corner of our Lodge carpet.

Prudence

is the ability to discern the appropriate course of action to be taken in a given situation at a given time.

It also means “discreet and worldly wise”.

Fortitude

– Courage, Strength and Endurance.

Temperance

– Self control Discretion and Moderation.

Justice 

- Sense of Fairness

Coupled with Benevolence and Charity, the above virtues are the essential signposts to a happy, meaningful and balanced life.

Past Master's Jewel

[submitted by Eddie Wildman December 2019]

The Past Master's Jewel  indicates that the recepient has not only served the Lodge for a year but is now figuratively able to build complex constructions using the 47th proposition of Euclid.

   

(This is the Pythagorean theorum that in a right-angled triangle, the square of the hypotenuese is equal to the sum of the square of the other two sides.)
