    Everything Has Significance, Even What You Wear

    Everything Has Significance, Even What You Wear

    As the Worshipful Master of the Southern California Research Lodge, D**o Rodriguez points out, one of the most revealing aspects of any individual is their actions, and those actions include the ways we clothe ourselves - every day. The fabrics and accessories that we decide to wear are an expression of our identity. In Masonry, we have our iconic attire such as the Masonic apron, officer jewels, gloves, and more, depending on your jurisdiction. These become the common implements that bind us, but the clothes those items lay over say more about the individual wearing them than anything else.

    The Virtue of Justice

    The Virtue of Justice

    In this episode, we turn our attention to the fourth, and final in our series of the four Cardinal Virtues: Justice. To pick up all four in-depth Fraternal Review issues on the four cardinal virtues of Freemasonry and to put these tools to better work in your life, please visit theresearchlodge.com.

    Freemasons are charged to cultivate Justice as a spiritual quality. As we listen to the wise words of Brother C. Douglas Russell, Editor in Chief and former Master of the Southern California Research Lodge, we hear how Justice has the ability to lift us further upward by integrating Justice as a crucial responsibility to our communities and the whole of humanity. Justice is truly a duty that extends to the four corners of the world. A duty that we owe to all regardless of race, color, sex, religion, age, or political affiliation. This virtue is not only consistent with divine and human laws but is the very cement and support of civil society.

    The Virtue of Prudence

    The Virtue of Prudence

    In this episode, we turn our attention to the third of the four Cardinal Virtues: Prudence. In the July 2020 issue of Fraternal Review, Brother C. Douglas Russell, Editor in Chief and former Master of the Southern California Research Lodge guides an in-depth study of this virtue and enlightens the readers on how Prudence goes beyond simply being careful or cautious, and as having good judgement. Bro. Russell explains that for the brethren who built Freemasonry, and for those continuing to hone this virtue today, Prudence can be seen as all-knowing, eternal, and divine wisdom.

    Freemasonry and the Tarot

    In this episode, we turn our attention to Freemasonry and the Tarot. In September 2019 we dedicated an entire issue on this topic and studied how each is a comprehensive system of esoteric knowledge containing the gnosis that emerged from The Ancient Wisdom, stretching back to the dim recesses of human history.

    Further Study of the All Seeing Eye

    Further Study of the All Seeing Eye

    In this episode, we are revisiting one of the most ancient and ubiquitous symbols of freemasonry, “The All Seeing Eye.” This topic was particularly popular and well-listened to in our previous episode, so we decided to share further study. Again, if this episode piques your interest or inspires you to learn more, we encourage you to download a copy of the December 2018 Fraternal Review which is dedicated to “The All Seeing Eye” and takes a further look into its history and symbolism.
