DID YOU KNOW

bullet            (author not known)

Knowledge is awareness of facts,
data and information.
Wisdom is the ability of our minds to properly apply the knowledge which we've accumulated when the situation or circumstances requires it.
Knowledge teaches us that to be forthright is to proceed straight on, to go straight to the point without ambiguity or hesitation. Wisdom teaches us to be tactful and diplomatic. Many men possess great quantities of Masonic Knowledge. The number is significantly lower of those who possess great wisdom in Masonry.

bullet   Harrington Perceptory # 14 was named after Very Eminent Knight Thomas Douglas Harrington. It was chartered in 1871 in Trenton, Ontario and moved to Almonte and finally North Bay, Ontario in 1893. Not only was V. Em. Kt. Harrington at the very first meeting of the Provincial Grand conclave for Canada in 1855, but his death was mentioned in the Proceedings in 1882. What is important about this is that Harrington Preceptory was named after him while he was still alive. Current Statutes only allow the naming of a Preceptory after someone who is no longer living.
   As a matter of interest, the next time you are in the Masonic Complex of Prescott look at the picture of Thomas Douglas Harrington who by the way lived in Prescott and is presently resting in Blue church Yard.

 

bullet   The Order of Malta, which is the second Order of Knights Templar still exists in its original form in Rome. The Masonic Knights of Malta and the Papal Knights, wear approximately the same Mantles and gear. This is only one of the Orders of Knighthood which continued its existence. Did you know: Doants were a class of men who were attached to the 0rder Of St. John of Jerusalem or Knights of Malta. They did not take the vows of the Order, but were employed in different offices of the convent and hospital. In token of their connection with the order, they were allowed to wear a cloak called a Demi-cross.
