The Masonic Brotherhood from the Blue Forget-Me-Not
by Allen E. Roberts, FPS
The Masonic Brotherhood from the Blue Forget-Me-Not was formally created on The month of january 1, 1972. It had been the outgrowth of years of discussions among prominent and anxious Masonic teachers and authors.
These males were worried about the possible lack of recognition of individuals Masons who have been dedicating their lives and assets to Masonic education and writing. It made an appearance, appropriately or wrongly, the plaudits from the leadership from the Craft were restricted to the numerous Masonic ritualists. Others made an appearance to become overlooked.
The Society of Blue Friars honors one Masonic author every year, others need to wait. Masonic teachers, in general, are overlooked. Yet these Master Masons would be the males who're maintaining your body of Freemasonry alive and vital. They should be honored for some reason through the Craft. The Masonic Brotherhood from the Blue Forget-Me-Not is trying to provide them very good that they're so highly titled.
The recipient is judged by a small group of Masonic authors and teachers before he's selected for membership within the Brotherhood.

The certificate, stationery, and pin specified for by Allen E. Roberts, the Secretary, who also (before his dying) soaks up the price from the Brotherhood. He is doing it while he pictures the dwelling, or Body, of Freemasonry by doing this:
Ritual = Skelton (or framework)
Meaning = Heart and brains
Benevolence = Soul
Philosophy = Blood stream
Jurisprudence = Muscles
History = Flesh (or binder)
The ritual, while important, includes only one-sixth from the whole. Every thing about this Body should be nourished or it will likely be crippled. Your Body, in general, has what the earth has always needed, and just what still it needs today. BUT, it should be an entire, uncrippled, Body. This is exactly what is way too frequently overlooked
Freemasonry doesn’t have to change. Its belief within the Brotherhood of Guy underneath the Fatherhood of God can't be enhanced upon. What we should should do would be to treat your body once we should. Then, once more, Freemasonry is a vital and important pressure within our towns and also the world.
That's why we think about the Brotherhood from the Blue Forget-Me-Less an essential association in the human body of Freemasonry.
