Mother, please do explain to me, with clarity, what is a Freemason?
What care does give you in that, my son?
My father is a Freemason and fair that I know!
The mother, with great tenderness and affection with her hands
her son's hair, made him sit down by her side and she began to narrate the
the true description of the freemason in her husband.
"Freemason, my dear son, is a well educated man, a man of good conduct,
who doesn't allow any bad passion to vibrate in his heart, which doesn't
entertain even the least trace of any injustice or cruelty, but always
seeks the truth and is a shining example of good conduct
In any cause, he acts with fairness.
He considers the home, a Temple and discharges his duties to his home.
He is a specialist, who doesn't get tired of learning. He respects all
opinions and is against to all oppressions, but humbly extends a
hand to the needy. practicing the noble virtue of charity.
He hates the evil and is always ready to run to defend the virtuous
the oppressed. He helps the old ones and gives piece of advice to
the youths. He forgives every offense.
He always strives to acquire perfection,with the full knowledge
nobody is without defects."
In any way, my son, I believe that I have defined the personality of a
Freemason, because, I drew you your father's picture.
The boy, kissing his mother gratefully, whispered in her ear:
MOTHER! I AM PROUD OF MY FATHER !
