AVE MARIA (DO NOT DELETE)

Ave Maria

The top-left quadrant has the letters A.M. with the lily flower that is an abbreviation for “Ave Maria”. This was the greeting of the Angel Gabriel to Mary, the mother of Jesus. This was also the beginning of the “Hail Mary” prayer. According to St. Louis Marie de Montfort, wisdom can be attained through living a life of gentleness and authenticity, modelled after Mary, the mother of God.

D+S WITH A CROSS (DO NOT DELETE)

D+S With a Cross

The bottom-right quadrant has the letters D+S with a cross. D.S. is the abbreviation for the French words “Dieu Seul”, which means “God Alone”. God Alone is the all-motivating force in the life of St. Louis Marie de Montfort. To him, God is the centre of his life and in everything he does. God is foremost for him. For St. Louis Marie de Montfort, all knowledge comes to nothing if one does not know God. Thus, to know all things but not to know God is to know nothing at all.

SAILBOAT AT SEA (DO NOT DELETE)

Sailboat at Sea

On the top-right quadrant is the Sailboat at sea. It symbolizes the struggles and mortification that we shall experience in life. Much like the sailors in the ship at sea, we will come out being better people if we are able to weather through the storms of life, that is, face hardship and overcome difficulties in life.

STAR OF THE SEA (DO NOT DELETE)

Star and the man in the boat

On the bottom-left quadrant is the Star and the man in the boat. This symbolizes the Star of the sea, where seamen use to navigate to their destination in the vast ocean. If we are focused on the essential values of life, we shall reach our ultimate destiny in life. The Star of the sea shall be the guiding light that lights up the way in our life.

GREEN OLIVE BRANCHES (DO NOT DELETE)

Green Olive branches

The Crest is adorned with green olive branches, derived from Ancient Greece, which symbolizes peace and prosperity. It is thus the duty of each one to promote peace in the world, a peace that will last. Coupled with peace is that of prosperity which connotes not only the generation of wealth but also the integral development of human society.

“LABOR OMNIA VINCIT” (DO NOT DELETE)

"Labor Omnia Vincit"

The Crest carries the Latin motto “Labor Omnia Vincit” which stands for “Labour conquers all things”. Hard work embodied in diligence and perseverance leads one to achieve greater things in life. It can thus be said that in whatever you do, do your best.
