The degrees from the Nineteenth to the Thirtieth, represent the Council of Knights Kadosh, are Philosophical and Chivalric.
They teach LIBERTY, FRATERNITY, and EQUALITY applied to our everyday life. The world will judge us by our acts and Masonry will be judged by the character of its members. Be modest and humble, speaking only of the good in mankind and forgetting the evil. Respect labor itself and have sympathy for the laboring classes. Practice Charity and scorn the base and selfish. Truth and Honor are more to be cultivated than the gathering of wealth and power. Combat arbitrary and unscrupulous power and all influence which would keep people in ignorance. In ancient times our brethren met to redress wrong and defend the helpless. Masonry today has that same great mission.
Dan D. Smothers, 33°, Commander
DEMOLAI COUNCIL of KNIGHTS KADOSH OFFICERS for 2017
