Brotherly Love, Relief, and Truth.

These three virtues are the foundations upon which Freemasonry is built.

Brotherly Love is directed towards all mankind and especially to other Masons.

Relief, in that every Mason is obligated to relieve the suffering of any Master Mason they encounter who is in dire need.

And if in their power to do so, to the best of their ability, Also to act charitably towards society, giving of themselves to better the common good.

Truth, which is represented by the Divine in its multiplicity and diversity, as understood by all men.

These three ideas represent the core upon which Freemasonry focuses in its ultimate distillation.

In that Freemasonry does not hold one faith above another, but rather, it sees faith itself as the common denominator between all faiths.
