AN OPERATOR'S MANUAL FOR FREEMASONRY Every new Mason learns that "operative masonry" refers to the art and practice of stoneworking while "speculative masonry" refers to Freemasonry. "Operative Freemasonry" is a manual on the art and practice of Freemasonry.

Areas covered include: - Light Defined - Secrets and Mysteries - Prospective Freemasons: how to find them - Framing the Sacred: Preparation for Lodge - Openings and Closings - Initiation: what it is and how it works - Mentorship: how to keep our brothers active - Daily Freemasonry - Resources for Further Light Written for every Mason who wants to bring Light and Vitality back to his lodge and the fraternity.
