Roman Masonry continued the work, maintaining the verticality of the columns with all the oppression at which it was subjected along with the Nazi occupation as well as the neo-communist. The brothers who preceded us have been activated in times of dark hours. Due to their light in Roman masonry has never faded.
Nausea, the oppression of suffering has happened here in our legitimate territory, which we have never left, of our uninterrupted activity through which we have supported the work. Brothers have helped each other, say testimonies, evidence, in forced labor camps, with nothing lower than Auschwitz, Belsen. The methods were different, we did not know the furnaces of death, which exceed the magnitude and way of the crime any human imagination.
The families helped each other, while the brothers were admitted to the camps. Somewhere in the unseen, everywhere, there was a resistance. Brothers, many brothers, I’m sure they didn’t believe the Communist occupation would end in the century that went down. But behold, God wanted the horror to collapse itself, as the sad Utopia, as Vaclav Havel called it, to have the end that I witnessed. I don’t know, although I’ve been looking to document if other Masonic brothers from other occupied territories have had a fate like ours.
A decisive argument, it constitutes, in the continuity of the work, the decision of the great sovereign Commander C. Belu, to narrow the Supreme Council of Romania in Paris through Dr. Leonida Vladimir.
Brother Fred Cerchez has kept the banner of Romanian masonry with dignity high in the whirlwind of history, of the winds, not once the contrary.
Our brothers, Jews, emigrate to Israel, still felt Romans. The lodge celebrated last year’s 50 years of continuous activity, working in the Romanian language. All efforts have been made to reconstruct as close, accurately as truth, by making contact with the PLESUVII veterans, most of whom today are at the eternal East. There are still a few In life. In unison, the information coincides, constituting no variants, one Corpus. The uncut outfit on the loose after 5989 took place on the day of St. Stefan 5989, in the Memorial Temple of Radu from Afumati str. There were five: Anton Dimitriu, Nicu Filip, Edmond Nicolau, Mircea Sion, and Ion Udrea.
It was this historic outfit, very emotional, we gathered in the open outfit, recognizing our brothers. Above it was the infamous star, on an improvised altar, the square and the compass Open at Grade 1, in a visible place as the ordinance imposes.
The lack of a document of this outfit is explained by Brother Edmond Nicolau present there: “We were so full of emotion, that none of us stood up to it. It was natural, I didn’t think to take this day, after 45 years of Soviet occupation, made with the Romanian hand.
It followed a beneficial period for Roman masonry. At the modest headquarters “at the court”, as has always been said, a thorough instruction was made, the brothers gathered from three in three days in prolonged outfits, discovering them in the dynamics of rituals, I mean the three degrees, the deep, eternal truths that Contain.
Here they have conferred on Edmond Nicolau, Nicu Filip, Mircea Sion, this in a sustained manner; They were invited, in white outfits, different personalities from the fields, which enlightened the brothers.
They are now found in the giant Bridge of the temple, the goats and the scanners, with which it was constituted, in Horseshoe, the table. There was no participation fee, but everyone came up with what he could.
All this work has not been left without results. On January 24, 5993 at the “Swan” complex, after so many years, the Romanian masonry was settled, which entered through this historical act, in the Circuit of planetary reconnaissance. The “Swan” is the first Grand Master chosen under the auspices of the Grand Master of Italy Giuliano Di Bernardo. Take part in the ill ceremony.

The contemporary Romanian Masonic order is essentially the continuum of traditions and Masonic works in the Carpathian-Danubian-Pontic space of the last 180 years. Although broken after the fall of Romania inside the Communist camp, among the survivors, the Obsessive decade, the Stalinist dictatorship and then the quarter of a century of national reclusion ordered by Nicolae Ceausescu, the lights were found to Continue the traditional work of masonry.
If at its inception, it was constituted as a cohesion element of the generation of the communist camps, the Grand Lodge evolved into the Romanian society towards a greater coverage of the generation formed between 5950-5970, those called the technicians of socialism, those who Made the first reform, failed in time, of the Stalinist communism.
This generation of the left, without having any kind of tangent with the key elements of the sacs (either religious or Masonic) watched the continuation of the Masonic chain as a curiosity and then as a lacking element in their spiritual life, which must be known and Expanding.
As far as the great officers and grand dignitaries of the lodge are concerned, each province must be present and represented in the Grand Council. Thus, Cluj and Alba Iulia, Timisoara and Craiova, Aradul and Suceava, Constanta and Iasi – enumeration are not limitative – must be represented, being part of the decisions taken.
The Masons of the Romanian territory have always been solidarity with Tara. This, it is to explain why the first constitution at large, the first constitution of a regular masonry, of masonry that puts the primacy of faith in God was voted to take place in a Convent summoned to Alba Iulia. In a Convent where delegates from all the country’s expansions are present, conversions at the symbol City of the unity of all Romans, which is and will be Alba Iulia.
The draft Constitution presented to the Convention, was featured together with another project drafted in the mystery, contrary to Masonic plants involving truth and trust. The two projects were presented in full to the Convention, which voted to accept the project of Brother Voiculescu, removing the second project as inconclusive, not fulfilling the aspirations of Roman Freemasonry at that time.
The Constitution of Alba Iulia was presented by brother Voiculescu, put to the vote, article with the article, and meeting the unanimity was voted and promulgated by decree by the Grand Master.
The ordinary convent, chooses as Grand Master, on the late brother Dohotaru Adrian. The mandate of Grand Master Adrian Dohotaru will take a little, 5-6 weeks, as the victim of an accident.
Romanian masonry, in the great National Lodge of Romania, had the dignity and courage to take a position against corruption practiced in the order, corruption being the key element that caused terrorism to have the power we have seen in the world.
In this light, at the extraordinary convention of Brasov 13-14 April 6002, the new Grand Master of the National Grand Lodge of Romania was elected by open vote, the person of Brother Viorel Danacu.
All the measures initiated by the extraordinary Convention in Brasov, aim to promote Romania’s national interests, support Euro-Atlantic integration, ensure welfare for the Romanian people, strengthen the rule of law, search for Progress Romania’s permanent reform, supporting reforms initiated by the President of Romania and the Government.
In this way, the Roman Masonic order supports, as always in the last centuries, the achievement of the national objectives of the Roman people: modernizing politics and economics, ensuring national unity and independence, social progress and edification Rule of law.
Changes to the Constitution of the National Grand Lodge of Romania and the new government program, from discussions in Brasov, aim, as direct and immediate priorities, the elimination of corruption within the order, the transformation of the National Grand Lodge Of Romania in a framework of discussion and research is wrong towards the edification of the good of Romania and humanity as well as to honor the needs of the brothers ‘ truth and support by all means of the integration of Romania into NATO and in EU.
Among the modifications to the Constitution are also some related to the promotion of internal communication between the members of the order. These have become necessary since, in recent years, the great National Lodge of Romania has expanded greatly, many honorable people join the Lodge. Because of this, changes in nature have been operated to guarantee the permeability of the management structures of the National Grand Lodge of Romania, the freedom of the candidates of all the Freemason entitled to any function and representation in the Grand Council of brothers from different areas throughout Romania.
As is known, the Masonic order enjoys a real and impressive tradition in Romania. In the time thread, the brothers in the order participated directly in all events that marked the constitution of the Romanian unitary national state.
And not a few times, the Roman Masons gave their tribute, in the form of the supreme sacrifice, in situations where the fate of the country was decided.
For the materialization of the action to transform the Grand National Lodge of Romania into a space to research the needs of Romanian society and to identify the horses and means necessary for progress and modernization, The Convention decided to set up the lodges of comparative ritualistic and Masonic researches, which will bring together, as members or visitors, the brethren who are concerned about the development of Masonic thinking and the problems faced by contemporary society, Thus becoming the column of historical, social and mostly metaphysical support of structures.
The comparative ritualistic Lodge and the Masonic Research constitute evidence of the maturity of Masonic thinking by the depth of the springs and their convergence in a Masonic philosophical constitutional doctrinal entity. Masonry constituted on the territory of Romania found a fertile, archaic, Pre-Christian fund; From where the profoundly religious character inclination towards meditation and traditionalism of the Roman people.
The research Lodge proposes to discuss and start a universal Masonic encyclopedia, original conception.
The work involves professionalism and continuous overall oversight, deadlines fixed by the editorial board.
As a starting point, an address will be sent to all the Grand Lodges from which we have received recognition, praying every Grand Lodge to wish that on a number of pages to constitute in English, its own history from its origins to the present day. The work on the Masonic Encyclopedia has already begun. A complex works that brothers in obedience attend.
The Grand National Lodge of Romania is the autonomous, sovereign obedience, recognized by the Masons of the Romanian territory.
The Grand National Lodge of Romania is deeply traditional, the strict respect keeper of the Unbending Landmark.
