From a reader:
I need some repairs doing on my house. We found a man who seemed competent and honest, and his price is good. Unfortunately, I noticed he was wearing a masonic ring (a pentagram I think). Should I hire somebody who is almost certainly a Freemason to do work on my house?
The fact that he takes it seriously enough to wear a ring gives me pause; but on the other hand (pun not intended), I know Masons are not all wicked individuals.
Yes, it is okay to hire a mason to work on your house. And I am not talking about your brickwork.
I can’t tell what continent you are on, but most masons in the USA are masons in the same way that some men are members of Rotary or subscribers to Sports Illustrated.
That said, when the work is done on the house, have your house blessed, room to room, thoroughly. I suggest this not because of the mason in himself but because everyone should have their houses blessed.
