KNOW MORE ABOUT THE FREEMASONS
Whether it is the first American President George Washington or the brilliant imaginer Walt Disney, Freemasons have created an influential wave in the history of mankind. This charitable organization is often referred to as the world’s most powerful secret society. Members come from all walks of life to meet as equals irrespective of their faith, ethnic group, or position in the society. It teaches self-knowledge through participation in a progression of ceremonies. They are pledged not to discuss with non-members certain parts of the ceremonies. Freemasons greet each other with some handshakes and passwords, which are kept confidential.
WHY THE NAME “GOOSE AND GRIDIRON”?
The foundation of the United Grand Lodge of England, the largest Masonic group in Britain was laid at the Goose and Gridiron Tavern in St. Paul’s Churchyard. The goose standing on a gridiron was a sarcastic allusion to a musical society that met on the premises. Their sign was a swan on a lyre, the proprietor of the tavern ensured that the sound of a goose on the gridiron was more harmonious than any other melody that ever came from their rehearsals! The name “Goose and Gridiron” was born from that error.
