The Confession of the Rosicrucian Fraternity

Addressed to the Learned Europe

Rosy CrossHERE GENTLE READER, YOU shall find incorporated in our Confession thirty-seven reasons of purpose and intention, the which according to thy pleasure thou mayest seek out and compare together, considering within thyself if they be sufficient to allure thee. Verily, it requires no small pains to induce any one to believe what doth not yet appear, but when it shall be revealed in the full blaze of day, I suppose we should be ashamed of such questionings. And as we do now securely call the Pope Antichrist, which was formerly a capital offence in every place, so we know certainly that what we here keep secret we shall in the future thunder forth with uplifted voice, the which, reader, with us desire with all thy heart that it may happen most speedily.

The Rosicrucians: Past and Present, at Home and Abroad

by Wm. Wynn Westcott, P.S.M., S.R.I.A., XI

William Wynn Westcott (17 December 1848 – 30 July 1925)It is well at certain times to consider our status as Rosicrucians, and to remind ourselves of the origin of the Society to which we belong, to notice how far we moderns have strayed from the original paths laid down by our Founder, C.R., and to take a note of the kindred Societies of Rosicrucians which are now in being, so far as we know of them.

With regard to past history we must not be surprised that extant published records are very scanty, for the purpose of the Rosicrucians was to be unknown to the people among whom they lived. Some few notable persons only appear to have had the right to function as recognized members of the Rosicrucian Colleges, for instance, Michael Maier the German student of Alchemy who died in 1662, and Dr. Robert Fludd of London and Bearstead near Maidstone who died in 1637.

One Hundred “Lost Words”

Masonic Service Association – Short Talk Bulletin – February 1947

Lost WordFreemasonry uses many common English words in a sense other than that of their usual definition -profane, heal, carpet, accepted, landmark, etc.

For the benefit of the new Mason – and perhaps for some who are older but less attentive to Masonic instruction than they might be – herewith are one hundred words commonly used in Freemasonry with a short definition of their Masonic significance.

ACACIA. An Eastern plant, sometimes a tree. Several hundred varieties are known. Masonically, an emblem of immortality.

Societas Rosicruciana in Canada – Manitoba Legislative Building in Winnipeg Manitoba

Manitoba’s Legislative Building, principal among public buildings in the province, accommodates the legislative assembly, its committees and staff, as well as offices for the ministers and deputy ministers of all government departments. When this building was planned just after the turn of the 20th century, members were unanimous in their desire to build an imposing structure – a symbol of strength and vitality in the capital city, “not for present delight nor use alone… but such as our descendants will thank us for.”
