The Seal and Logo of Collegium sanctorum angelorum

The Seal and Logo of the Collegium is distinguished by four symbols, which are encircled by the Collegium’s full name and its opening year.

  • Chi Rho. These constitute the first two letters in the Greek spelling of Christ.  The Chi Rho stands at the center of the seal, representing Christ Who stands at the center of everything in the life of the Collegium.

  • Six Seraphic wings.  The nine choirs of angels are divided into three hierarchies.  The first hierarchy, consisting of the Seraphim, Cherubim, and Thrones, is the guardian of the heavenly realm.  The six wings of the Seraphim represent one of the choirs of this hierarchy.

  • Crossed swords of the Powers.  The second hierarchy of angel choirs, consisting of the Dominions, Virtues, and Powers, is the guardian of the physical realm.  The crossed swords of the Powers represent one of the choirs of this hierarchy.

  • Scepters of the Principalities.  The third hierarchy of angel choirs, consisting of the Principalities, Angels and Archangels, is the guardian and God’s dearest creation, man.  The scepters of the Principalities represent one the choirs of this hierarchy.

 

In sum, the seal has symbols representing the Collegium’s patronage under all sanctorum angelorum.

 

Colors: blue, yellow and white.

  • Blue background is a reminder that the Blessed Virgin Mary is the Mediatrix of all graces.  Ad Jesum per Mariam.

  • Yellow and White are the papal colors, a reminder of our fidelity to the unchanging teaching magisterium of the Church.

 

 

The Motto:  Angelis suis mandavit de te

This eleventh verse from Psalm 91 (The full verse is  Angelis suis mandavit de te  ut custodiant te in omnibus viis tuis – He has commanded His angels concerning you, that they should guard you in all your ways.) affirms the trust that the Collegium places in the angels as our guardians, our guides, and our intercessors before the throne of God.
