Freemasons Arrested in Fiji

Brethren all,

Sometimes as we're socializing in our dinner jackets and best bow ties, we forget the dangers of being a Freemason in certain parts of the world. We should cherish the privilege that we have to meet in harmony and without the fear of ignorant tyranny.

This article from the Otago Daily in New Zealand doesn't mention which one of the three lodges in Fiji was raided. But the Craft has been resident in that lovely isle since 1871. There is currently two Craft lodges (one Scottish and one English) and a Scottish Chapter in operation.

We pray for the safety of our brethren in Fiji and a hope for a quick return to peaceful relations with the police.
