This is an interview with the Grand Master of the Grande Loja Nacional Portuguesa (GLNP), a Masonic organization.


The GLNP seeks to recover Masonic tradition to build a more just and fraternal society.


The goal of Masonry is to improve individuals to create a more human and harmonious society.


The GLNP is not a secret organization, as secrecy was instituted by dictatorial and communist states.


The Grand Architect of the Universe is a symbolic representation of the universal concepts of Beauty, Strength, and Wisdom, and each Mason is free to interpret this concept.


The GLNP is not a dogmatic organization and does not give a name to the Grand Architect of the Universe.


The GLNP is not a religion, and many religious leaders are also Masons.
