I have been honoured with Knighthood in the Order of the Precious Blood of the Old Roman Catholic Church in America (since 2017, the Society of Mercy). The Order is administered by Bishop William Myers, and describes itself as “an award of merit for those who have promoted the common good in an extraordinary way. Awarding meritorious service is a long-held tradition, and the Order of the Precious Blood is the second highest order awarded. It is awarded by the Superior General at his choice to those who have served him or the common good, and recipients may be of any faith background. It is in two classes with a neck decoration or a breast star and certificate accompanies the award.”
Bishop Myers, who is a member of the Order of the Crown of Thorns, met with me on his visit to England in 2014 and presented me with the Order of the Precious Blood on that occasion.
