In the ritual of the first degree of Masonry, there is a tremendous amount of symbolism connected to the first degree and the Corner-Stone which refers to the north-east corner of the lodge and many prominent buildings thru-out the United States and the rest of the world. In the ceremony of the first degree, the candidate becomes a symbol of a spiritual corner-stone. The corner-stone is the foundation on which the entire building is supposed to rest and is of course the most important stone in the whole building just as the members of the Masonic lodge support the lodge itself. The laying of the corner-stone is often celebrated with impressive ceremonies and more often than not with the assistance of speculative masons to give dignity to the occasion as the event is viewed as an important era in the construction of the building itself. The various properties of a true corner-stone are its durability and strength, its perfect shape and its position in connecting the walls of the building just as it is with the members of the Masonic lodge. Most often it is made of granite. It is no wonder why Freemasonry has adopted the corner-stone as one of its symbols of strength of the lodge and its members.
