We are not here to be silent and grim sitting on a bench and staring across the wall. We are here to enjoy good food, drink, sing and partake in the joys of frivolous merry making. For, on this night, we celebrate the arrival of South Pasadena’s First Masonic Con weekend and will toast those unique Brothers who contributed to the betterment of our society – to the Masonic Pop Culture Icons we hold dear. Ready! Aim! FIRE!
A study on how Masonic symbols have had a profound influence on our modern society. What is the draw to Masonic symbolism in modern art, music and fashion? And why does it matter?
This talk is inspired by Joseph Campbell’s The Hero with a Thousand Faces. As such, it is an exploration of the various stages of the Hero’s Journey, its mythological roots, Masonic exemplifications, and the practical application of this useful art by the contemplative man.
This presentation provides an historical overview of Masonic decorative arts and their essential role within the research of Freemasonry, as well as fraternalism in general. These objects are often the first contact many potential members’ encounter with the organization and their antiquated style seems to evoke a mythical golden age and inspire a visceral intrigue.
With Arturo De Hoyos, Adam Kendall, and Josef Wages

The Cain and Abel bloodlines (one evil and one hopeful) while both are and can be faith based the delivery of fruition is what differs. In today's application too many "hope" rather than work hard and blame others when fruition is not met i.e. a bad lodge hoping for the white knight to come and help but being blind to the ones coming and leaving.

From time immemorial, Freemasons have enjoyed meeting about a “festive board” loaded with the fruits of their labors. Special emphasis was placed on the Summer and Winter Solstice, late in the June and December months, which are the Feast of St. John the Baptist, June 24th, and the Feast of St. John the Evangelist, December 27th. It is written, in the first paragraph of the account of the founding of the Grand Lodge of England in 1717 – on the Feast of St. John the Baptist – and was published in the Book of Constitutions, that the old lodges in London had two (and only two) purposes in constituting a Grand Lodge: One was to establish a center of union and harmony, the other was to revive the Quarterly Feasts!
The feasts stood close to the very heart of the lodges. Even in ancient times, feasts were provided for and among the rules and regulations, were a fixed and necessary part of the life of a stonemason and were on par with wages. So important was the feast that one of the principal officers – the Junior Warden – had, as the purpose of his office, to be responsible for that function. This fact was reinforced by giving the Junior Warden two Stewards to assist him.
