I am a fairly recently raised master mason and I have questions and issues which I feel unconfortable asking my brothers because I am supposed to be acting upon the square and not complain. Can I ask for a mentor on this forum?

Hi there,
From the tone of your 2 posts I can’t help feeling that you haven’t paid attention to the content of the Degrees that you say you have been through.

If you do not understand what is happening in the Lodge meetings that you attend your Proposer and your Seconder are there to help you. Supporting you as you start your Masonic journey is one of the primary functions that your Proposer accepted by actually signing his name to your Petition. I know that I would be horrified if someone I had Proposed to membership then actually disregarded me and went off onto the Internet for guidance.

ALSO as you are stating that you are a Master Mason you are supposed to identify your Lodge etc in your signature file.

In the meantime the answer to your request (as last time) rests with your Proposer.

We’d also need to know what jurisdiction you are in.  It’s tough to advise you without knowing where you are.

I see in another post you say you are in NYC.  What lodge?  I can’t imagine ANY lodge that would force a brand new candidate to learn the middle chamber lecture.  Something doesn’t add up.  Still…if you are struggling with ritual, you should also have a lodge ritualist to assist.
