COMMUNICATIONS from the Bishop

No. 845          Diocese of Marbel, Philippines                    02 November 2015


The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines explains the 2016 Logo.  Shortened version (My apologies)

  • Green frame – symbolizes the world in which we live. Green is the color of life.  Both Eucharist and family nurture life.
  • Waves – recall countless generations and diverse cultures.
  • Five members of the family – denote the Filipino way of responding to being Catholic: family-oriented, meal-oriented, kundiman-oriented, bayani-oriented, spirit-oriented. (Catechism for Filipino Catholics, nn. 34-44).
  • The Cross represents Jesus who grants us salvation through his redemptive suffering, death and resurrection.
  • The radiant host and golden chalice with IHS (“IesusHominumSalvator” – Jesus Savior of Men) symbolize the Eucharist.
  • Jesus’ Paschal Mystery is especially mirrored by Family virtues and values:
    • red father: sacrifice, dedication, willingness to die for the family (Priest, Provider, Protector)
    • orange Mother: endurance and strength, passion tempered by wisdom, the feminine genius (St. John Paul II, “Mulieris Dignitatem”, n. 30).
    • brown child: humility, docility, industriousness, perseverance, patience.
    • blue child: Marian (CFC, 45-47), prayer, piety and service to God’s people.
    • white baby: purity, innocence, baptismal grace, springtime of hope.
  • The three rays that emanate from the cross and Eucharist refer to the three-fold kneeling required by renewal: repentance and mercy, adoration and prayer, love and service. We also recall the three words that Pope Francis wants every family member, especially the espouses, to say everyday to each other: “please”, “thanks”, “sorry” (address to participants in the pilgrimage of families in the Year of Faith, 26 October 2013).

To live the Gospel of Mercy, to proclaim and become witnesses of God’s love, the great gift of family and life, and to care for our common home, is every family’s call to be missionary disciples of the Eucharist.
