Brotherly Love, Relief, and Truth
These three virtues are the foundations upon which Freemasonry is built.
Brotherly love, as directed towards all mankind, especially to other Masons. As a true mason, we should show tolerance and respect for the opinions of others and behave with kindness and understanding to them. By the exercise of brotherly love, we are taught to regard the whole human being as one family. And that we are to aid, support, and protect each other regardless of sect, opinion, and nationality.

Brother, where art thou?
We admire our brother masons who persevere and dedicate their livesto Masonry. These brothers continue to pursue knowledge, ethics and leadership, which bring more meaning to their lives and to the fraternity.

Masonry is a body of knowledge and a system of ethics based on the belief that each man has a responsibility to improve himself while being devoted to his family, faith, country, and fraternity. We should be guided by the enduring and relevant tenets of our fraternity–Brotherly Love, Relief, and Truth–and our core values, which include:
Ethics: that our lives are based on honor and integrity and believing that honesty, compassion, trust, and knowledge are important.

Excerpt from the WM Speech – Dec. 8, 2012
(2013 Lodge Officers Installation)
Brethren: A fraternity is strongest when all its members feel a strong connection with each other, participate in activities and proceedings and contribute to the enthusiasm and growth of the lodge and fellow brethren.
As Worshipful Master of this Lodge, I intend:
• To grow our mentoring program to ensure our new brothers receive the proper instructions in the fundamentals of the Craft and are solidly engaged to be a strong member of our fraternity.
Last December 8, 2012 at Jersey City Masonic Temple Plaridel Lodge #302 Free and Accepted Masons of New Jersey held its 5th Installation of Officers for 2013.
On behalf of the 2013 Plaridel Lodge Officers, I would like to thank all the brothers who contributed to the success of the Installation Event held Saturday Dec 8 2012 at the Jersey Masonic Center.
