At the core of Freemasonry lies the foundation of brotherly love. The cement of brotherly love is what holds not only the individuals of the fraternity together, but also holds the human species together. From the richest of rich, to the poorest of poor, we all originated from the same almighty, loving, parent. This cement is meant to help, aid, protect, and support each other. A Freemason should show respect and tolerance to the opinions of others. Each Mason should behave with compassion and tolerance to not only his fellow Masonic brothers, but to every human walking this planet.
Brotherly love is natural to true blood brothers. Blood brothers expect nothing, and appreciate everything. This is how the cement of brotherly love should bond Masons as well. Without this valuable tenent of Masonry, the Order would cease to exist, and darkness would rule our day and night.
