of the Amaranth is a fraternal organization
composed of Master Masons and their properly qualified
female relatives. In its teachings, the members are
emphatically reminded of their duties to God, to their
country and to their fellow beings. They are urged to
portray, by precept and example, their belief in the
"Golden Rule" and by conforming to the virtues inherent in
TRUTH, FAITH, WISDOM and CHARITY they can prove to others
the goodness promulgated by the Order.
The extent of its Charitable Work and
overall Benevolence is limited only by the opportunities
that exist, and the ability to secure adequate funding.
Its Philanthropic project is the Amaranth Diabetes
Foundation. The flag of the appropriate country is
prominently displayed at all meetings creating a strong
sentiment of patriotism and devotion to the respective
land that we love.
Conspicuously upon the Altar is placed
the Holy Bible, the inspired word of God. Its divine
truths send forth its sacred luster to all parts of the
globe and is used among us as a symbol of the will of God.
It reminds us of the omnipresence of the "Almighty"
overshadowing us with His Divine Love and dispensing His
blessings among us.
The leaves of the Amaranth plant (Like
the "Laurel") is indicative of distinction and honor, and
when formed into the "Amaranthine Wreath" with its never
ending circle, is typical of the bond of fraternal
friendship which encircles our beloved order, and which
has a central place upon our Standard (Ceremonial Flag),
surrounding the "Crown and Sword".
