COAT OF ARMS AND MOTTO

 

The design on the Coat of Arms is based on one of the dreams of St. John BOSCO. There the Church appeared as a boat struggling through a rough, stormy sea and finally finding peace in the embrace of two pillars: on one pillar was the Holy Eucharist, and on the other, Our Lady Help of Christians. The anchor is the symbol of the virtue of Hope. The motto is taken from 1 Pet 5:7. The original Biblical text in Latin runs as follows: “Omnem sollicitudinem vestram proicientes in Eum, quoniam Ipsi cura est de vobis”. In English it says: “Cast all your anxieties on him, for he cares about you. ”

 

 

牧徽與格言

 

牧徽上的圖像來自聖若望鮑思高的一個神夢,他夢見教會的船,勝過兇險的波濤,終於在兩條柱的中間得到安寧;一條柱上有耶穌聖體,另一條柱上有聖母進教之佑。錨是望德的標記 。 


格言取自伯多祿前書第五章第七節:拉丁全文是
omnen sollicitudinem vestram proicientes in Eum, quoniam Ipsi cura est de vobis。中文是「將你們的一切掛慮都託給衪,因 為衪必關照你們」。這句格言,為配合圖像,意譯如下「洶湧波濤莫驚怕,平安抵岸全靠衪。」
