The Mission of Divine Mercy is represented by a logo and an Emblem. The two serve different purposes. Our logo, with its silhouette of the Teocalli, represents the human part of the Mission. Our Emblem, with its Cross and wounded Sacred Heart, represents the spiritual. Together, the Emblem and logo help to convey the totality of MDM’s work and ministry.
Our logo denotes the physical and human part of the Mission – the land itself, the buildings, activities, staff and volunteers. It can be used on work shirts, caps, identity badges, buildings, etc. In other words, it encompasses all that aids MDM in our ministry to draw down God’s grace for those who come here physically or in spirit.
The Emblem is very different; it is sacred and worn only by the religious community members on the front of our habits. It is a simple image that denotes the spiritual aspects of the Mission, particularly our core virtues of Faith, Humility and Obedience—and represents the offerings that each member makes in union with Christ’s Offering on the Cross.
The elements that make up the Emblem are:
- The Cross of Light: This signifies the Light of the New Evangelization. The blinding Light that will chase away the darkness.
- The Sacred Heart with Flames: This is a sign of Jesus’ Love and Mercy, and of His direct intervention and actions on our behalf. The Fire signifies His Love that consumes all that is not of God, making us a pure and acceptable offering of love to the Father.
- The Thorns, Wound and Drops of Blood: These signify the sufferings that Jesus endured for us, and in which we may be asked to participate. They are visible signs of the price of true Faith, true Obedience, and true Humility.
