Welcome to Magus Masonica
"I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: 'O Lord, make my enemies ridiculous.' And God granted it."-
In the past 13 years since the inception of this site, we've NEVER received as much e-mail (cumulatively) about one individual as we have about Mr. Brad Cofield- Ed King-Masonicinfo.com
It may seem that we are being harsh to this individual, but only because everything he stands for flies in the face of our sacred traditions.

Now, it is the 1613 position not to interfere in any way with someones destiny. If this includes doing us harm in either the short or long term due to lack of communication, or actions we cannot explain and do not understand; it is then our responsibility to accept and endure. We will not speak against such actions, we will instead embrace this persons choice to remanifest in their own way, and in that way we wish them happiness.
The after effect is not for us to restore our loss. How can one simply rebuild what what lost? Instead, we need to take this as an opportunity to improve. To make better what was, and to continue on the path of Kaizen, according to our principles.
We have chosen to do just that.
The early results have been the rebuilding of our face on the internet. Now, please keep in mind that we being a community of free sharing and limited resources and simply cannot get all of this done at once. I have decided to take on the beginning of this project myself, contributing both the funds and the time. Of course nothing will be asked in return but patience and understanding.
The websites that have rebuilt thus far have been done in the order of their lodges consecration. All of the others will follow as resources allow. In the meantime please enjoy the new sites and give these Brethren all the support you can.
Love and happiness to all of you. Cooperation, compassion and community. We, my Brethren are the pillars of the temple.

To all members of the 1613, my deepest thanks and hopes for great 2011 for each and every one of you. May peace and health be upon you and yours in the upcoming year.
We have a lot of work ahead so let's not loose focus on the upcoming tasks. But, for now let us be merry and delight in the company of family, friends and Brethren.
May G.A.O.T.U. grant you the gifts of enlightenment and may the universe show us all the path from profanity to divinity.

Personally, I'm not much of a "black and white" thinker. There are very few circumstances that I run into where the answer is either A or B with no other possible alternative. For me, this is not only one of life's greater challenges, but it is also one of it's greatest joys. Finding that something that you have looked at, read or experienced can still have elements that are totally new to you, even though you thought yourself so familiar.
In my Masonic journey this constant reinvention happens on a continual basis. New challenges arise and new solutions formed. Old Rites and rituals reveal a whole new electric effect. Someone I thought I pretty much new everything about suddenly surprises me in some fantastic way.
Of course, a Masonic journey just like any other has it's good and it's bad fantastic elements. The 1613 is not immune to this. There have been some that for whatever reason joined the Nation only to leave feeling worse for the experience. Part of me does feel bad bout these types of situations but also I realize that this too, is part of those individuals unique path. Self determination is a beautiful thing, but it isn't always easy to encourage it in others. I have to always remember to let myself help them, even those who wish the Nation and myself harm, be who they need to be.
The universe needs polarity. The Nation too needs it's adversary, or else it's hyper fluid kinetic form cannot exist on a level needed to make worldwide change. I'm not saying that it's easy to read some of these attacks against us. I am saying though that they need to be there. If we are to deny those who hate the ability to do so, then we are nothing more than the oppressors of movement that the Nation was founded to fight against.
A liquid cannot be compressed. Those of static mindsets will not be changed via our positions. The Manifesto will not have a voice among those who choose to not hear it. All of this my Brothers is OK, it is as it should be. Our work will continue and through our challenges we all become stronger.
It is my hope for all of you that you are happy. Transmutation and remanifestation are wonderful things but they are also a ton of hard work. You may not feel instant gratification but there is not second put into any of this that is ever wasted. You are all loved and appreciated. The journey always begins with a step and project with a vision. We just need to step back sometimes and remind ourselves of the simple things.

It is my pleasure to announce, in total fraternal partnership with the THE ORDER OF THE KNIGHT BENEFICENT OF THE HOLY CITY L'Ordre de Chevaliers Bienfaisants de la Cité Sainte Sovereign Great Priory of Bulgaria (C.B.C.S.) and the THE ORDER OF THE KNIGHT BENEFICENT OF THE HOLY CITY L'Ordre de Chevaliers Bienfaisants de la Cité Sainte Sovereign Great Priory of d'Italia (C.B.C.S) that we consecrate on this day 12/04/10 the Priory of St.Germain-1613 Nation.
This will be the mother Priory of the Scottish Rectified Rite for the 1613 Nation with it's Headquarters located in Atlanta, GA.
We have been working hard with our fraternal allies to bring the C.B.C.S. to the 1613 Nation. Membership is open to all 1613 Masons and the Priory is harmony with the 1613 Manifesto.
This is a great day for all Masons, a very proud one for the Nation.
A full list of Lodges under Priory St. Germain will be listed in 2011
Brief history of the C.B.C.S. courtesy of THE ORDER OF THE KNIGHT BENEFICENT OF THE HOLY CITY L'Ordre de Chevaliers Bienfaisants de la Cité Sainte Sovereign Great Priory of Bulgaria.
The Scottish Rectified Rite or Chevaliers Bienfaisants de la Cité-Sainte (CBCS) - Knights Beneficent of the Holy City - was originally a Masonic rite, a reformed variant of the Rite of Strict Observance which, in its highest degrees, uses Masonic-type rituals to demonstrate the philosophy which underlies both Martinism and the practices of the Elus-Cohens. The CBCS was founded in the late 18th Century by Jean-Baptiste Willermoz, who was a pupil of Martinez de Pasqually and a contemporary of Saint-Martin. The CBCS has managed to survive as a continually practiced rite from its founding until the present day, both as a purely masonic rite, and as a detached Rite which is also open for women.
The C.’.B.’.C.’.S.’. is the chivalric branch of the Martinist tradition, where Knighthood meets the Martinist doctrine.
The aim of the C.’.B.’.C.’.S.’. is enable the Chevalieres to follow the Imitation of Christ, and adopt a life of moral chivalry as the basis of all spiritual attainment. Furthering the personal work of rebuilding what once was lost, the work of the Knights and the Dames of the order is to manifest the charitable teachings of Martinism in the world through beneficent and unselfish deeds. C.’.B.’.C.’.S.’. is thus the chivalric branch of the Martinist tradition, the poor knights of Christ.
Of course the C.B.C.S. as worked under the 1613 Nation is in full unity with the 1613 Manifesto. It is open to all 1613 Freemasons.
