Membership Medal

A very kind gen­tle­man had this medal cus­tom-made in 1975, so it is a unique exam­ple. He has recent­ly died and rel­a­tives of his have giv­en me this very beau­ti­ful medal just like that, thus allow­ing it to take the path of its destiny.

I was very pleased to have such a mem­o­ry of this per­son. Since I was wear­ing some­thing sacred myself, I have kept the medal safe­ly and actu­al­ly for­got­ten all about it. As I was writ­ing down the arti­cles of the Lay Com­mu­ni­ty, I knew that the mem­bers were to wear a sacred medal – blessed in a spe­cial way. Oh, then came the mem­o­ry of this medal. I looked at it and found it won­der­ful­ly appro­pri­ate. I imme­di­ate­ly looked up an address where they could be stamped in large quan­ti­ties. Now it has found its des­tiny. The late gen­tle­man will sure­ly be pleased about it.
