OMI Coat of Arms


Cross of Calvary: Represents the glorious salvation won by Christ.

Hanging from the top is the crown of thorns, and bisecting the front is both the lance that pierced Our Lord’s side and the sponge used to wet His lips with vinegar. These instruments of the passion symbolize that the road to freedom of mind and body is paved with hard work and suffering. Christ, through His life, has given us the perfect model on how to frame our own lives.

Light emblazes the cross, cloaking the earth in the grace and Divine Mercy of God. As stated by our founder, Oblates “strive to become other Christs, radiating everywhere the fragrance of His lovable virtues.”

A little garden at the bottom of the cross, a patch of uncultivated ground represents the Church. We reach Christ through our cultivation of the “uncultivated,” preaching the word of God to those who have yet to be brought the Good News.

Evangelizare Pauperibus Misit Me. Pauperes Evangelizantur -”He has sent me to evangelize the poor; the poor are being evangelized”. The missionaries of Mary Immaculate live among the poor, to serve the poor. Our lives are formed around the motto on our coat of arms.
