Imitating the heart of Jesus who feels every human emotion, understands every struggle and offers comfort to each person.
Like Mary, pondering and trusting in God’s will, embracing sorrows and a faithful disciple right up to the Cross.
A symbol of Hope, as we embrace suffering and pain, a sign of victory over sin and death.
The seat of the Bishop where he leads God’s people, nourishes them with the Word and provides sanctuary for the needy.
The ability to recognise the Divine in every person we encounter, to be open to dialogue and to seek the good of the other.
