Freemasonry has often been described as a secret society, owing to the fact that it uses certain symbols to instruct upon a deeper knowledge about mankind's relationship with God. The variety of charities supported by this ancient fraternity comprised of millions of men and women are well known and easily recognizable. Children's hospitals are operated by Shriners throughout the world. Speech therapy centers, educational grants, eye care foundations and homes for the aged are funded and operated by Scottish Rite Masons, Knights Templar and Grand Lodges everywhere they are situated. There is nothing secret about Freemasonry's love for humanity. Among the very few secrets it does maintain-the ancient knowledge about mankind's relationship to God, concealed with such recognizable Masonic symbols as the Square and Compass-is fully explained in Meditations on Masonic Symbolism.

What? More symbolism? Yes, yet another – and the first of a series titled Selected Symbols of the Entered Ap­prentice Degree by Anthony Mon­gelli, Jr. This is not your standard study and although some of the references used to draw conclusions are – to me at least – suspect, it is a work which will make you think about the many, many connections we have to antiquity and lost learning. I found it intriguing.
