Unity, True Brotherly Love

The 133rd Psalm, when  recited by the Initiate, symbolizes unity. It shows a tassel of the fez, which hangs down the beard to the shoulder, a symbol of Brotherly Love who dwells upon the earth as brethren in unity. Both are an essential need for that harmony which must prevail in every successful Masonic lodge, which has guards at its entrance. They are just as necessary for a safe and fruitful session. This Psalm brings out the glories of unity and Freemasonry’s first tenet.
