Best Answer

The meaning of being given a golden chalice is dependent on the religion of the recipient. In Western religious traditions, chalices are often given to priests upon their ordination or members of historic families as a form of inheritance. In the case of the later, the family insignia is usually inscribed upon the cup as well. Pagan adherents use the chalice as a symbol of the Feminine Principal in ritual ceremonies to bring a new initiate among its members. In Shamanistic and dream traditions, chalices are considered the highest level of spiritual awakening to the receiver. In both the aforementioned examples and all other views, gold chalices are thought of as both positive and holy representations of divine knowledge. Their possession is not to be taken lightly, but with great respect and humility.
