Master Mason Candidate Guide
ongratulations, brother, on your preferment and upon your joining the ranks of Master Masons the world over.The third degree of Master Mason is the crown jewelof the ancient craft blue lodge. It is the culmination of all thathas been taught and revealed to you, the candidate, in the twopreceding degrees. As you began your Masonic journey, you wereinitiated into a new and unique philosophical life via the Entered Apprentice degree. After working to subdue your passionsand learning silence and obedience and demonstrating yourproficiency, you were passed to the degree of Fellow Craft. Afterhaving symbolically mastered the intellectual and philosophicalarts and sciences and crossing the threshold from the outer tothe inner, from the material to the intellectual and spiritual, you were considered by your brethren ready to be raised to thesublime degree of Master Mason.Regardless of your pace through the degrees of Masonry, as a newly raised Master Mason, you should continually review yourpersonal progress and take appropriate and positive action toimprove yourself in Masonry. You should never be satisfied withsimply taking the three degrees and then considering yourself to be a whole and complete Master Mason. Both operative andspeculative Masonry are active, not passive activities.Just as the master stonemasons of old continually searched forimproved designs to put on their trestleboards, which resultedin the erection of some of the most beautiful buildings in thehistory of the world, so also must we, as speculative Masons,continually look for ways in our daily lives where we canpositively apply the lessons taught us within Masonry and seek always to add to our knowledge of the craft.
