I realize the question I am posing to the forum is best posed to the Confraternity itself, but I was hoping for a quick answer here.
I am anticipating the Dominican rite needed to join the confraternity to be administered in the next few months, as it is a busy time for the Priests right now. I have the medal and kit in my possession now, but you are asked not to wear it until it is blessed.
I speculate this is so that people who don’t INTEND to join the Angelic Warfare Confraternity simply order the medal and use it as jewelry. I however have a “burning” desire to wear the medal right away, as a reminder of Saint Thomas, the Mother of the Church, and the purpose of joining the confraternity, so much so, that I am posing the question to the forum:
Is it ok to go ahead and wear the medal? One side has the IHOM, the other St. Thomas.
