THE THIRTEEN MARTYRS OF CAVITE


Even before the execution of Jose Rizal on December 30, 1896 and those of the thirteen martyrs of Bagumbayan on January 11,1897, mass arrests and summary executions were already done in other parts of the country, the more notable of which are the “Thirteen Martyrs of Cavite.” Executed on September 12, 1896,their ages range from 31 to 64 years. Ten of them were masons as follows:

1. Mariano Inocencio, aged 64 , a rich proprietor,
2. Jose Lallana, 54, a tailor, former Corporal in the Spanish Army and a Spanish Mason,
3. Eugenio Cabesas, 41, a watchmaker and member of the Katipunan
4. Maximo Gregorio, 40, a clerk of the Cavite Arsenal,
5. Hugo Perez, 40, a physician and member of the Katipunan,
6. Severino Lapidario, 38, Chief Warden of the Provincial Jail and member of the Katipunan,
7. Alfonso de Ocampo, 36, a Spanish mestizo and member of the Katipunan,
8. Luis Aguado, 33, employee of the Cavite Arsenal
9. Victoriano Luciano, 32 a pharmacist and poet, and
10. Feliciano Cabuco, 31, an employee of the Navy Hospital in Cavite.

The three non-masons are:

1. Francisco Osorio, 36, a chinese mestizo and contractor
2. Antonio de San Agustin, 35, a surgeon and businessman, and
3. Agapito Concio, 33, a teacher, musician and painter.

When Cavite rose in arms in August 31, 1896 under the leadership of Emilio Aguinaldo, masons and others who stood for freedom joined the uprising, foremost among them were the thirteen martyrs of Cavite. In dying for a noble cause, they live in the hearts of their grateful countrymen.

To their memory, a lasting monument dedicated to their honor now stands in the public plaza at the heart of Cavite City.

JOSE ABAD SANTOS

Abad Santos was born on February 19, 1886 at San Fernando, Pampanga and was executed by the Japanese on May 2, 1942 in Malabang, Lanao, for his refusal to cooperate with the Japanese Imperial government.

He was made a Master Mason on September 6, 1919 and was elevated to the mystic Grand East as Grand Master of Masons in 1938-39. He became member of the Philippine Bodies, Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite

Freemasonry and was invested the rank and decoration of a 32° KCCH by the Supreme Council, Southern Jurisdiction, U. S. A., in 1941.

He held the position Chief Justice of the Supreme Court at the outbreak of World War II. Before President Quezon left the country he tried to convince Abad Santos to go with him to the United States, but the latter preferred to remain with his people during their darkest hours.

He was captured by the Japanese invaders and was asked to collaborate but he refused saying: “to obey your orders is to become traitor to the Unites States and to my country. I prefer to die than live in shame.” Before his execution, he saw his son crying and admonished him with these words: “Do not cry, Pepito, show the
people you are brave. It is a rare opportunity for me to die for our country. Not everyone is given the chance.

He is one of the greatest of heroes during World War II.


NICANOR ABELARDO

Nicanor Abelardo, musician, composer, and "father of the sonata in the Philippines" was born on February 7, 1893 in San Miguel de Mayumo, Bulacan and died on March 21, 1934 at quite a young age of 41 years.

Abelardo was made a master mason at Luzon Lodge No. 57 and was also conferred the 32° at the Philippine Bodies.

He acquired his formal musical education at the Conservatory of Music at the University of the Philippines in 1916. His unusual musical talent was recognized when he was appointed in 1916 as instructor of the Conservatory. In 1930 he received a grant from the University to pursue advanced musical studies at the Chicago Musical College.

Some of his kundimans are "Ikaw Rin," "Bituing Marikit", "Pakiusap", and "Nasaan Ka Irog", songs that truly express Filipino sentiments.

Some of his kundimans are "Ikaw Rin," "Bituing Marikit", "Pakiusap", and "Nasaan Ka Irog", songs that truly express Filipino sentiments.

NUMERIANO R. ADRIANO

Numeriano Adriano was born in Pandacan, Manila, on July 5, 1846 and died on January 11, 1897. Adriano was initiated into the mysteries of Masonry on February 1892 adopting the Masonic name "Ipil" at Nilad Lodge and soon after formed Balagtas Lodge in Sampaloc. As a Mason, he took active part in the formation of the Regional Grand Lodge and was elected vice-president under the Presidency of Ambrocio Flores.

An active officer in the Propaganda Movement that supported Marcelo H. del Pilar’s "La Solidaridad", he and together with his protégé, Apolinario Mabini, organized the "Cuerpo de Compromisarios" specifically to raise funds for the purpose. A very enthusiastic Mason, his home at Nagtahan was a frequent place for the secret meetings of the then banned Masonic Order.

He was executed at Bagumbayan (now Rizal Park) on January 11, 1897 together with Domingo Franco, Moises Salvador, Faustino Villaruel and nine others for alleged complicity in the Philippine Revolution.

BISHOP GREGORIO AGLIPAY


A true blooded “anac ti Batac”, Gregorio Aglipay was born on May 5, 1860 in Batac, Ilocos Norte and died on September 1, 1940. He was made a Mason on May 3, 1918 at Magdalo Lodge 31 in Cavite, now called Emilio Aguinaldo Memorial Lodge No. 31. Jailed in his early childhood together with his uncle for their failure to produce the required tobacco harvest as required by government monopoly, his seething hatred against tyranny was nurtured starting from his youthful years.

He studied at San Juan de Letran, and upon the advice of Rizal discarded his law studies and entered the seminary in Vigan where he was ordained Catholic priest in 1890.

He joined the Philippine Revolution at its late stage. Joining Aguinaldo’s libertarian movement as a priest, he was excommunicated by Archbishop Nozaleda on May 4, 1899. He was later appointed Military Vicar by General Aguinaldo with special duties to win adherents in the heartland of Ilocandia.

He became a member of the Malolos Congress and was a signatory to the Malolos Constitution. At the close of the Filipino-American war, Isabelo de los Reyes founded the “Iglesia Filipina Independiente” and convinced Aglipay to be its “Obispo Maximo.”

A revolutionary priest and soldier, Aglipay is ranked among the unsung frontliners of the Filipino patriots.

Emilio Aguinaldo

Emilio Aguinaldo was born on March 22, 1869 at Kawit, Cavite and died on February 6, 1964, one of the few Filipino patriots, who died at a late age. His remains was laid in his historic residence at Kawit. He was made a master mason on January 1, 1895 at Pilar Lodge No. 203 (now Pilar Lodge No. 15) at Imus Cavite and was founder of Magdalo Lodge No. 31 (renamed Emilio Aguinaldo Lodge No. 31 in his honor). He was conferred
the Scottish Rite degrees in 1917 in the Philippine Bodies, A. & A. S. R. and was coroneted 33° by the Supreme Council of the 33rd Degree Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry of theRepublic of the Philippines.

In 1894, he was initiated into the Katipunan by Andres Bonifacio.

A towering figure of the Philippine Revolution, he led his countrymen in their fight for liberation against Spain, and later, against the United States of America. He proclaimed Philippine Independence on June 12, 1898 on the balcony of his residence in Kawit, now a national shrine and the annual site of independence day celebrations.

The first president of the Philippine Republic, he opened the Malolos Congress on September 15, 1899 thus making his country the first republic ever established in the eastern shores.

GALICANO APACIBLE

Dr. Galicano C. Apacible, patriot and propagandist, was born on June 25, 1864 at Balayan, Batangas, and died on March 2, 1949 after a lingering illness caused by an accident some four years before. A contemporary of Dr. Jose Rizal who lived in the same boarding house while studying at the University of Sto. Tomas, he later pursued his medical studies in Spain and there joined Logia Revoluccion in Barcelona and Logia Solidaridad 53 in Madrid.

In 1899 he was sent to the United States along with Rafael del Pan as delegates of the Revolutionary Government to seek intervention in their endeavor to make peace with Spain.

After the cessation of the Philippine-American hostilities, he became governor of Batangas and held this position until he was elected Assemblyman. He was appointed Secretary of the Department of Agriculture and Natural Resources from 1917 to 1922 but resigned due to ill health. In his written memoirs after retiring from public service, he wrote:

"Though inactive for many years, I am a Mason, an attribute which I have not renounced nor concealed and to which status I wish to remain as such!"

itama lang po natin ang mali, si emilio aguinaldo ay naging mason sa  Logia Pilar Lodge No. 203 ng Gran Oriente Espanol Rito Escoses Antigou y Aceptado at kanyang itinayo sa isang sikretong lugar sa kanyang pamamaya sa kawit kabite ang Logia Magdalo No. 371 noong 1915 na nasa ilalim ng Gran Oriente Espanol, Ang lahat ng mga bayani natin nakita nila ang liwanag ng masonerya ay sa Gran Oriente Espanol Rito Escoses Antigou y Aceptado.

Noong dumating ang mga amerikano at naitatag na ang Grand Lodge of the Philippines Island ang logia  magdalo ay nahati sa dalawang grupo ang maki QUEZON at maki aguinaldo, ang mga maki quzon ay sumama sa mga amerikano at pinalitan nila ang pangalang Magdalo Lodge 371 at ang mga maki Aguinaldo ay nanatili sa Magdalo Lodge 371 na ngayon ang orihinal na logia ay nasa ilalim na ng Gran Logia Nacional de Filipinas. Pagkat kahit kailan ay hinde sumama si Presidente Emilio Aguinaldo sa mga Amerikano pagkat ayaw niya mag pa sa ilalim ng kahit sino mang banyaga, pagkat alam naman natin na siya ay nakipag himagsikan sa mga mananakop ng bayan.

Kung kayo ay magsasaliksik pa, inyong malalaman ang katotohan kung bakit sa aguinaldo shrine ay may litrato doon na nakalohod siya sa altar ng mason at nanumpa sa Grand Lodge of the Philippines. Kung kayo naman ay magagawi sa Scottish Rites temple sa Taft ave. ang makikita ang mga paintings ng mga bayani, sa mata ng mga mason iisipin mong kasapi ang mga bayani sa Amerikan Rites  na GLP, ngunit sa mata ng mga mason na nanaliksik, ang mga suot ng mga bayani doon na apron ay hinde pang rito escoses na talagang sinusuont nila noong panahon pa ng kalakasan ng rito escoses dito sa pilipinas...Magkaiba ang kasuotan ng amerikan rites at scottish rites masons.


Eh halos lahat naman mga Fellowmen ng mga fratmember na nasa Gobverno or kahit saang Private employee who holds various key positions ay mga mason. There is is a particualr reason why.

A contemporary of Dr. Jose Rizal who lived in the same boarding house while studying at the University of Sto. Tomas, he later pursued his medical studies in Spain and there joined Logia Revoluccion in Barcelona and Logia Solidaridad 53 in Madrid.

In 1899 he was sent to the United States along with Rafael del Pan as delegates of the Revolutionary Government to seek intervention in their endeavor to make peace with Spain.

After the cessation of the Philippine-American hostilities, he became governor of Batangas and held this position until he was elected Assemblyman. He was appointed Secretary of the Department of Agriculture and Natural Resources from 1917 to 1922 but resigned due to ill health. In his written memoirs after retiring from public service, he wrote:

"Though inactive for many years, I am a Mason, an attribute which I have not renounced nor concealed and to which status I wish to remain as such!"

PARANG SI RIZAL AH...............LONG LIVE THE FREEMASON
