A Short Video about the American Rite of Freemasonry...

As a Master Mason you should be interested in Masonic advancement, not that you will thereby become a better Mason, but that you may have a better understanding of the Masonic ladder, additional Masonic contacts, and an explanation of that great symbolism upon which the Fraternity has built a glorious superstructure. We, your Brethren, know the pleasure and gratification you felt when you completed your first three steps in Freemasonry and became numbered among those thousands of men the world over who stand for a Sacred bond of Brotherly Love, Freedomof Faith, and Peace and Happiness for men of all nations and of all creeds.

But Masonry does not terminate, here. There is a well-traveled and interesting road that lies ahead that is rich in experience and friendship, and which unfolds with surprising beauty for those who travel it. Thousands of your Brethren have walked it in the past, and thousands more will travel it in the future. We who have walked the road ahead of you stood at one time just as you do now at the threshold of a new and rich experience in our Masonic travel. We decided to step across that threshold opening the doors to the degree work on the floors above - the doors that are as yet closed to you. We hope that you will take these same steps - steps that gave to us and will give to you so much pleasure and satisfaction.

Masonic history, significantly and legendary, has centered around the search for the true Word. The lessons taught in the Lodge leave the initiate with the sense of having almost, but not quite, discovered the much-to-be-desired object of his quest. The first steps to take along this road should naturally tie in closely and enrich the degrees you have already received. Such are the Chapter and Council degrees and the Orders of the Commandery in the York Rite. These American (York Rite) degrees are not merely degrees, but are exemplifications of honored faith based virtues often neglected; many lost sight of in fast paced lives.

The speculative degrees of Entered Apprentice, Fellowcraft, and Master Mason, as conferred in the United States, are degrees of the American Rire or York Rite. York Masonry is the oldest, truest, and best known of all Masonic principles. It takes its name from York, England, dating from about A.D. 923. Masonry´s first written record is centered around York, the seat of the Ancient York Grand Lodge. This is the true form upon which our present steps of Speculative Craft Masonry is professed.
