Another Grand Lodge has decided it has had enough of our little dictator. And not the least.
Remember how François Stifani pushed and shoved to get an invitation to the most glittering occasion of the season, the consecration of the Grande Loge Régulière de la Principauté de Monaco, not even 12 months ago (February 19th, 2011 to be exact). His initial insistence caused a diplomatic incident with Prince Albert writing to the Quai d’Orsay, the French Foreign Ministry. Pushing and shoving continued for quite some time. But the combined royal forces of the Duke of Kent and Prince Albert won the day. The consecrating Grand Lodges were the UGLE, The United Grand Lodge of Germany … …and the GLNF,
but without François Stifani !!!
The GLNF was represented by Big Moustache who footed the bill for buckets of bubbly to try to save the day. To no avail. Over the ensuing months a litany of Grand Lodges have pulled the plug on the GLNF by way of suspension of relations or withdrawal of recognition.
And now it’s Monaco’s turn !!! Less than 12 months after its consecration one of the newest Grand Lodges on the international block has severed ties with what could be construed to be its Mother Lodge.
The Grand Master, Jean-Pierre PASTOR, wrote to François Stifani today, January 25th, informing him of his decision to suspend relations with the GLNF. As soon as Winnie works out how to post it, I’ll be able to show you the letter in both English and French. But take it as truth, folks, …
…Stifani de Monaco is no longer welcome on the the ROCK !!!
