Jose Rizal FreemasonWhat makes you a Mason?

Dr. José Rizal. National hero, polymath, Freemason. The Church promised him safety and longer life if he retracts his Masonic beliefs and return to the catholic fold. He never retracted. Moments before his execution by a squad of Filipino soldiers of the Spanish Army, a backup force of regular Spanish Army troops stood ready to shoot the executioners should they fail to obey orders. The Spanish Army Surgeon General requested to take his pulse: it was normal. Aware of this the Sergeant commanding the backup force hushed his men to silence when they began raising "vivas" with the highly partisan crowd of Peninsular and Mestizo Spaniards. His last words were those of Jesus Christ: "consummatum est",--it is finished.
