"To preserve the reputation of the Fraternity unsullied must be your constant care."

“The Masonic system represents a stupendous and beautiful fabric, founded on universal purity, to rule and direct our passions, to have faith and love in God, and charity toward man.”

Indianapolis Scottish Rite in Taylor Swift Video

A nice surprise. Taylor Swift's new music video for her song "Change" was shot at the Indianapolis Scottish Rite Cathedral. Not exactly a huge showcase of the building—it seems confined to the South Lounge. But nice, nevertheless.

See it here.


  1. Given the funding issues that all branches of Masonry are experiencing right now, the following comes to mind:

    The Scottish Rite in many locations has some of the finest, most magnificent facilities in their communities. I wonder what would happen if both the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction and the Southern Jurisdiction cooperated to put out a book showcasing their finest facilities, to be sent to major TV, movie, and music video production houses. Every dollar counts these days.

    Somebody, please pass this idea along to our fine brethren in Lexington and DC.
