He said he was extending to me and my wife (she was not present), on behalf of President Hinckley, an invitation to receive a 'special blessing' in the Preston England Temple.
He asked whether I had heard of the 'second endowment' to which I replied no.
Elder Hillam promised me it would be a 'life changing' experience.
He said the ordinance was performed in Joseph Smith's time but had been discontinued during President David O. This resulted in only 2 of the then apostles, Harold B. Kimball, having had this ordinance on the death of President Joseph Fielding Smith.
We should have our temple recommends and our temple robes etc. Basically, Elder Mc Conkie wrote that , during the first endowment you are given certain blessings to become a king and a priest (queen and priestess) to the most high God, and these blessings are conditional on you remaining worthy of them.
With the second endowment, the conditions are removed as you have already proven your faithfulness and entitlement to the blessings.
He said if the general membership knew about it there would be problems.
More would want to receive the ordinance than the apostles have time to accommodate and members would wonder why so and so had received it but they had not. He said I should just tell them that their mother and I were going away for the day or weekend. Mc Conkie had written on the subject of making your calling and election sure.
It meant I and my wife would be guaranteed a celestial glory unless we committed the 'unpardonable sin' which seemed to be unthinkable at the time.
I later told him that I had heard of it, but was so stunned by his invitation my mind went blank regarding the matter.
He told me very few people receive this blessing and it must be kept secret.
