On October 26, 2015 A.D./ 6015 A.L. I had the pleasure of accepting invitation to and visiting with WBro. Erastus Allen and the members of Lodge Ad Lucem No. 812 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Lodge Ad Lucem No. 812 works under the jurisdiction of The Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of Pennsylvania and Masonic Jurisdiction Thereunto Belonging.
WBro. Allen and myself are both members of The Philalethes Society which is how we first became acquainted several years ago.
I had a wonderful time visiting and listening to the educational lectures, one of which was from a visiting brother from San Marcos Lodge in San Marcos, Texas. There was also another visiting Brother from California present at this meeting.
After the lodge was closed, we proceeded to a Table Lodge and had a joyous time fellowshipping and enjoying each others company with more stimulating conversation.
I would strongly recommend that if you find yourself in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on the 4th Monday of the month, find time to visit with these Brothers. It will be time well spent in my opinion.
Myself with WBro. Eric Cohen, Worshipful Master of Lodge Ad Lucem No. 812

Hidden Church of the Illuminati: A Review of Esoteric Tradition from Atlantis to the Present Day by Richard, Duc de Palatine
International College of Esoteric Studies Liber 71
(posted to FB group The Liberian Compass on 8 October 2015 1600 hours)
Title: Hidden Church of the Illuminati: A Review of Esoteric Tradition from Atlantis to the Present Day by Richard, Duc de Palatine
Purpose: This writing expounds on and helps explain some aspects of Freemasonry Craft degrees, especially the degree of Master Mason, including aspects of the Holy Royal Arch Mason degree
Though Liber 71 (and others) can be found online, anyone not a Freemason will NOT see the connections or usefulness of this (and many other lessons) that come from the various esoteric schools/ traditions that Freemasonry has pulled its lessons/ teachings from.
What I have always sought to correct is the overall lack of Masonic teaching, coupled with the fact that there are so few teachers of the Masonic or other Esoteric teachings despite the interest by many who are on a spiritual path seeking Light/ Enlightenment.
It is my sincere hope that those who choose to read/ study this Liber will come to see the connection(s) and gain better understanding of Masonic ritualistic teachings and the important lessons contained therein.
