    Tell me now, my Brother,
    What came you here to do?
    When you joined our mystic circle,
    Had you a purpose in your heart
    To be of service to your fellow man
    And perform your allotted part,

    Or came you out of curiosity
    Or motive personal in view?
    Tell me. Brother of the Square
    What came you here to do?

    Have you studied well the meaning
    Of the symbols on our chart?
    And learned to subdue your passions
    And make improvements in your art?

    Do you uphold the trusts
    On which we firmly stand,
    Teaching fatherhood of God
    And brotherhood of man?

    Have you willingly aided the brother
    When life surges were fierce and wild?
    Have you offered cheer and comfort
    To the Mason’s wife, widow and child?

    If you have done so, my brother,
    You are a Mason good and true,
    And can give a correct answer to
    “What came you here to do?â€

    Find a lodge closest to you in your town and talk to the secretary.

    considering he's located in france, wouldn't he want to be more specific in the type of lodge he chooses? i haven't kept up on the different grand lodges going on over there in europe, but i remember france had a number of them, not all of them regular, yes?

    Yes, I believe there is only one recognized GL and its now been deemed irregular so I don't think there any regular lodges in France.

    There may be troubles there too. I've heard rumblings.

    But, isn't that always the case these days?

    I haven't heard a yea or nay on the issue to date. Go to the GLE (Grand Lodge of England) and keep up with the issue. I believe they might meet in grand session sometime around May: you can check on that. That's when a decision, if coming down, will be published.

    WOW! NICE is nice every time of year!

    Stay in touch.
