I just want to share the chosen Logo for our 12th General Chapter.
According to our sister-designer, the design was inspired by the prayer for the Year of Preparation for our 12th General Chapter.
The image of the dove is God the Holy Spirit to whom the Adoration Sisters are consecrated and by whom they are called to the contemplation of the love of the Triune God and the mysteries of salvation. The praying hand is the symbol of our prayer life (through the chanting of the Liturgy of the Hours, and our general contemplative way of life) – for the sake of the Church in the service of perpetual adoration, and the good of the world at large.
The circle symbolizes completeness of God’s redemption in the New Covenant, the fulfillment of the Law in Christ. Also, it portrays Divinity. The gold or yellow-orange color symbolizes Divine Light and the richness of God’s Kingdom within each baptized.
The Eucharist in the Monstrance is the life sustenance, which is Christ Himself. The book is the Holy Scripture, and the globe symbolizes the world and all that is in it.
The theme of the General Chapter: “Seeking the face of God” is inspired and empowered by the Holy Spirit with his seven gifts (the rays of light radiating from the Dove). The bread becomes the Real Body of Christ through the Holy Spirit, who is the source of spiritual life. Through our eucharistic way of life and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, we are enabled to see through God’s eyes (the shape around the Sacred Host in the Monstrance).
Our contemplative-missionary and Eucharistic life is an oblation to the Most Blessed Trinity for the life of the world!
