Installation Speech of Worshipful Master Federic G. Sagario (2010)

RW sirs, VW sirs, W sirs, Sirs, Brethren, friends of Masons, Brethren from APO Alpha Eta Alumni Ass., my family & colleagues, Good afternoon……

I should, first, express my heart-warm gratitude to VW Alex B. Madamba Pddgm, for his exceptional presentation of installing the officers of this lodge, also to Vw Arnel Ofendo Reyes Ddgm MD Ncr-A, our Master of Ceremony, of course Bro. Rommel Agan JW of Cosmos Lodge No. 8 and specially to my mother lodge, Cosmos Lodge No. 8 who guided, and mold me in every ways through this same place where they initiated, passed, and raised me, to the sublime degree of Masonry, and how they nurtured me to masonry’s pure principle. Moreover, I give thanks to VW Antonio “Tonet” Tuason Pddgm who trusted, believed and supported me on my travel to this oriental chair, also to Island-Luz-Minerva Lodge No. 5, who enhances my ability in degree works and conferrals that grant me, an honorary membership, to the Empire of the East and West and its Grand Emperor for considering this Lodge to be part of one of the prestigious but humble club. Most of all, to the brethren of Frank Reed Horton Memorial Lodge No. 379, for having reposed in my person and character your confidence in my ability to lead you. I assure you, in turn, that I will try my utmost ability to administer the affairs of our lodge, as well as to promote the interest of our craft and to work for its enlargement and advancement. However, I cannot do it alone. I need not only God’s blessings and the beneficial influence of Masonry’s pure principle, but also your all-out cooperation and heartfelt support; We should, each of us, exert a little more effort to use wisdom in our relationship with one another, to make harmony the primary objective of all our undertakings, and to show to all and varied the beauty of the fellowship that exists among us.

As our Grand Master says, “Together brethren, we will make the difference, all for one and one for all.” That he is convincing us to build the one great team of players in this lodge highly determined to show to the non-Masonic public that we are, indeed, a band of men cemented by our special instrument to which others may look for example and inspiration. This is a team effort for the benefit neither of the master nor any individual personality but for all the brethren composed of this young lodge.

Take an example from one of the same holy works that those freemason forefathers read and trusted: from the epistle of Apostle Paul to the Philippians…. “Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right; whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is anything worthy of praise, let your mind dwell in these things.” While this may seem play into a necessity to weigh and judge, it is actually more an attempt to focus our thoughts on a loving attitude- on harmonious rather than the divisive. This can be the same message from more concerned masters and teachers among us. We need to concentrate on the light in order to manifest it more fully. Though we face many challenges together, we know that we’re headed toward the goal of greater light, understanding, and harmony. Stay the course on the higher path, my brothers. Continue to practice random acts of kindness. Treat each encounter as holy. Think, meditate and pray knowing that every thought and intention is creative.

Finally, my brethren, be ye all of one mind; live in peace; and may the God of love and peace delight to dwell with you and bless you. I sincerely wish to all of you, dear brethren, your families and friends a most blessed year ahead of us. May the GAOTU bless our humble lodge with good fortune and prosperity. May all of us work together in close harmony to gets things done for the best interest, the welfare and survival of our Masonic Family. Remember that, at this altar, we have promised to befriend and relieve every Brother who shall need our assistance. We have been enjoined to remind a Brother in the most friendly manner of his fault, to endeavor to aid his reformation, and to defend his character.

If we are indeed good and true brothers and friends to fellow Freemasons, there is yet hope that, someday, we will complete the construction of the Temple of the Brotherhood of Man under the Fatherhood of God. And behold, we will find, how good and how pleasant it is for us to dwell together in unity!

Frank Reed Horton Memorial Lodge No. 379 in one accord let us prove that we are indeed……..“United brethren, and we will make the difference”

Thank you!
