Happy Feast of St. John the Evangelist!

The Holy Saints John

A Certain Point within a Circle

Lodges were anciently dedicated to King Solomon, who was said to have been our first Most Excellent Grand Master.  But Masons in modern times dedicate theirs to St. John the Baptist and St. John the Evangelist, who were said to have been two eminent Christian patrons of Masonry; and since their time, there is, or ought to be, represented in every regular and well-governed lodge a certain Point within a Circle.

Multiple – Letter Cipher with Monitorial and Floor Work for Symbolic Lodges under the Grand Lodge Free and Accepted Masons of Wisconsin, 1999 Revised Edition of work Adopted June 10, 1975.

Masonic Lodges have traditionally held feasts or celebrations on the dates appointed for the Feast of St. John the Baptist and the Feast of St. John the Evangelist.  No Lodge that I know of is holding a feast but I like to keep it regardless.  I think it’s a nice tradition to recognize the great lessons and examples these two great men have set for us.

    Does it count that I’m not a Mason or particularly religious, but that I hope to make a very nice braised beef tenderloin tonight?
