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.

6 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.

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.
