COAT OF ARMS AND MOTTO

 

Bishop Peter Lei’s coat of arms illustrates his motto “Per Crucem ad Lucem” - “Through the Cross to the realm of Light”.

 

Christ is the Light, and the Light is shed from the Cross. The Chinese motto 共 苦 同 甘 seems to indicate another aspect of the same truth, that one cannot reach Christ the Light except by following the way of the Cross. The dark section of the globe strikingly brings out the dismal effect of the lack of Light.

 

 

牧徽與格言

 

李宏基主教的徽章,以十字架與地球為主題,意義一目了然。十字架之光未照達的部份,一片漆黑,是醒目 。

 

座右銘為共苦同 甘──為基督分十字架的重負,俾與基督共享永福。拉丁文座右銘 ,Per Crucem ad Lucem 直譯為藉十字架到達光明之 境
