Final session of the Masonic World Conference

An hour ago, resumed the work of the World Conference. The last issue to address is: "Principles and values, counselor of human development." This issue is very important, especially when you consider what Brother Thomas Jackson said in his speech yesterday: "The importance is to open a space for Masonic leaders from around the world in which they can meet and understand how Freemasonry works." He also added that: "To achieve the unification of a program working together to achieve our goals."
