Our broad system of ethics comes from the Masonic heart of goodness, forgiveness and kindness. 
It is the science of humanity that we teach.

Our ethical degrees teach us to intensify friendships and brotherhood between men by quieting disagreements and to work constantly towards the betterment of humanity.  We must generate happiness in and positive impacts on the lives of all those with whom we come into contact, teaching and living the power of laughter, brotherly love, relief and truth.  Making people smile and laugh is consistent with the gratitude, joy and cheer we have received in studying and absorbing our Masonic degrees.

Among the many responsibilities of those with a Masonic heart is the duty to produce growth by recruiting the worthy and well-qualified to become Masters of the Royal Secret.  The magnificent passkey we offer these 
candidates is to knowledge, comprehension, wisdom, tolerance and, above all, understanding the great central thought that inspired the universe, mankind.
