April 20.1973 1! tke Sand 2 )i (Continued m page 12) The Sand Dollar or Holy Ghost Shell is one of the most unusual specimens of marine life. The markings on the shell symbolize the Birth, Crucifixion and Resurrection of Christ. On the top side of the shell, an outline of the Easter Lily is clearly seen. At the center of the Lily a five pointed star representing the Star of Bethlehem appears. The five openings are repre­ sentative of the four nail holes and the spear wound made in the body of Christ during the Crucifixion. Reversing the shell one will easily recognize the outline of the Christmas Poinsettia and also the Bell. When broken, inside the shell are five little birds called the Doves of Peace. Some say they are the Angers that sang to the Shepherds the First Christmas Morning. ondultant ^iued Program Reflects Yearns Theme table accented with a yellow dp er w p.
