Freemasonry is the oldest and largest fraternity in the world. The ultimate goal of the freemasonry fraternity is to improve the character of its members. Character is a man’s most valuable possession. Dr. Albert Schweitzer wrote these poignant words of wisdom, “It is not enough merely to exist…..Every man has to seek in his own way to make his self more noble.” This motto captures the essence of what freemasonry aspires to achieve in every aspect of their lives. Freemasonry members are men from all walks of life, and they are from every race, creed and nationality. Freemasonry, as a group, is committed to making each member a better man. They are committed to attaining spiritual enlightenment so they can attempt to achieve moral perfection. Freemasonry strives to make the world a better and more humane place for all mankind.
