Why should I become a Scottish Rite Mason?
"Wherever Freemasonry flourishes there will be found the highest type
of citizenship and the best standard of living.” - Albert Pike, 33°
In Freemasonry there is no higher degree than that of a Master Mason,
the 29 degrees of the Scottish Rite serve to enrich the philosophy of
the Symbolic Lodge. A Mason who chooses to further his Masonic
experience by becoming a 32° Scottish Rite Mason will be expanding upon
the fundamental principles of Freemasonry.
In the Scottish Rite, you will indeed find an untold wealth of
knowledge. It will teach you more about Masonry. It will
answer some of the questions raised in the Blue Lodge degrees. It
is a sort of “graduate course” in Masonic teachings. In fact, it
aids, supplements and reinforces the Blue Lodge in every way. As
organizations, these bodies are mutually dependent because they
strengthen each other.
By joining Scottish Rite, you have an opportunity to expand upon your
knowledge of Freemasonry, to widen your circle of friends, and to serve
humanity in unique ways.
