Grand Orient of Brazil and the Grand Lodge of Washington DC reestablished fraternal relations with the French National Grand Lodge (GLNF)


According to two news issued by the Masonic Press Agency on May 1st and May 17th, 2013, the Grand Orient of Brazil and the Grand Lodge of Washington DC reestablished fraternal relations with the French National Grand Lodge (GLNF).


Several months ago GLNF began a series of reforms to restore its legitimate status within the international Masonic scene. The first step was the election of Jean-Pierre Servel in the office of Grand Master. The second step was the adoption of reforms which led to the suspension and removal of Stifani from GLNF.

As a result of these required decisions, GLNF began to reap the first fruits of its labor: Grand Orient of Brazil restored fraternal relations with GLNF (The Grand Orient of Brazil reestablishes Masonic relations with the French National Grand Lodge. GLNF and GOB put an end to the suspended relations, event occured a year ago because of the internal problems of the French National Grand Lodge. GOB's action will likely produce a chain reaction that will restore the international status of the French National Grand Lodge) and then was the turn of the Grand Lodge of Washington DC to do the same.

On May 14, 2013, the official announcement was made by GLNF's Grand Master. During the Annual Communication in Washington, the decision regarding GLNF was adopted unanimously. The impact of the decisions taken in Brasilia (in Latin America) and Washington (in North America), plus the strong position of Grand Chancellor of the United Grand Lodge of England will help GLNF this year to proudly celebrate its centenary.

Also the same source informs that: If Europe's Grand Lodges that have initiated the process of withdrawal of recognition regarding GLNF are not reacting yet as their counterparts in Washington (and in Brasilia), in the horizon arises the problem of the Supreme Council for France which will be forced to depart from the way adopted so far.
