is a proactive approach to, and practice of, Freemasonry. The name Phoenixmasonry
combines the symbolic spirit of rebirth and renewal associated with the
ancient mythological bird the Phoenix with the ancient Craft knowledge
of Masonry, hence the name Phoenixmasonry.
Our Latin motto:
Non Omnis Moriar. ''Not all of me shall
organized as a Library and Museum.
Its website and business affairs are handled by Phoenixmasonry, Inc., which is a Florida
not-for-profit corporation. Phoenixmasonry is sovereign and does not depend on any
domestic or foreign authority and control. We differ in many ways from Grand
Lodge Masonry in the United States in that Phoenixmasonry does not discriminate on the basis of sex or race.
Phoenixmasonry studies a divine order of learning, superior to mundane knowledge. As
interpreters of the Ancient Mysteries, we are true educators and illuminators. The science
of life is the supreme science, and the art of living, the finest of the arts.
persons admitted as a members come of their own free will and accord, from all
faiths and religious denominations, with a realization that personal and spiritual growth
is the goal of all human aspiration. Phoenixmasonry continues to foster all the
time-honored traditions of the Ancient Mystery Schools through the research
and study of all philosophic orientations, disciplines, and symbolic degrees.
I not been asked to join?
There is a reason for that… A person
needs to come into Freemasonry because he/she really wants to, not because theyve been
talked into it. You must first "ask yourself" if you are suitably prepared to
enter into the study of the Ancient Mysteries. Few individuals are intellectually or
spiritually prepared to understand or appreciate even the more apparent meanings of
Freemasonry. Do you reflect on the nature of mans existence, your obligation to God,
your family, and yourself? If such ethical and moral questions hold little interest for
you, then you will gain little benefit from the teachings of Freemasonry.
But if you
seek a more meaningful quality of life and the spirit of charity and good
fellowship which flow from it then Freemasonry has much to offer.
We want you to
know what we believe, how we act, and what we do
and, then, should you become a
Freemason, to be proud to be a member and participate in our work. Only those who
desire membership because of their favorable impression of
Freemasonry should seek an application. Thats why you must first "ask yourself."
Do I Become a Freemason?
Freemasonry is best experienced firsthand by receiving the degrees
in a community based Lodge preformed by Master Masons.
To become a Freemason you must be at least 21 years of age (age 18 in
some Obedience's), and have a belief in a Supreme Being.
No. Freemasonry is not a religion nor does it
require a religious affiliation. Freemasons worship in congregations of their
choice. Simply put, Freemasonry is a fraternal society that teaches a system of morality,
veiled in allegory, and illustrated by symbols. It is a philosophy of ethical conduct
which imparts moral and social virtues and fosters brotherly love. Sectarian religious or
partisan political discussion in our forums is prohibited. Every Freemason stands equal
among his/her Brethren, regardless of walk of life. We are proud that its tenets have
endured since man first turned the pages of civilization. With respect to religious
traditions, Freemasonry teaches the "Fatherhood of God" and the
"Brotherhood of Man."
