The Three (3) major symbols of the Coat of Arms represent the three jurisdictions that comprise the Diocese of Kalookan; namely:

* The Monument at the very center represents Caloocan City from which the name of the Diocese was derived;

* The Fishes on the right represent the City of Malabon; and

* The Banca on the left represents the Municipality of Navotas.

The red color of the lower half of the insignia symbolizes not only the valor of martyrdom of our Philippine heroes with which Kalookan is noted for, but, more importantly, the sanguine ardor, fortitude and love of the Diocese of Kalookan in the fulfillment of her mission.

The blue color of the upper half of the insignia denotes the Marian Character of the diocesan ministry.

The Cross on the top of the insignia signifies the centrality of Jesus Christ in the life and function of the entire Diocese of Kalookan while the dove, hovering above the monument, represents the Holy Spirit sanctifying the lives of the People of God – the bishop, priests, religious men and women and the laity – in the new diocese.

The theme, the latin words: “DUC IN ALTUM” (Lk. 5:4) – “put out into the deep” – binds together all the elements of the insignia and captures the spirit and direction of the Diocese of Kalookan in the Third Christian Millennium.

Ang Escudo ng Lub. Kgg. Pablo Virgilio S. David ay nahahati sa dalawang bahagi.

I. Ang kaliwang bahagi ay patungkol sa Diyosesis ng Kalookan.

Kaliwang bahagi, gawing itaas: ang bangka, lambat at pulutong ng isda ay sagisag ng tubigan sa mga pamayanang sakop ng Diyosesis ng Kalookan – ang mga lungsod ng Malabon at Navotas; nagpapagunita sa pagtawag ng Panginoon sa mga unang alagad sa pampang ng lawang Galilea, na pumalaot upang maging mamalakayang tao.

Kaliwa bahagi, gawing ibaba: ang Monumentoni Andres Bonifacio – Sagisag ng Kabayanihan at Kalayaan na sumasalubong sa mga manlalakbay mula sa Norte sa Lungsod ng Caloocan papasok ng Maynila.

LAST YEAR'S JUBILEE POSTER

Friday, 17 June 2016 00:10

Bishop Ambo David

 

For the Original Inspiration of the Portrayal of Christ as the Good Samaritan and Humankind as the Victim on the Roadside, see
today's (May 26) Office of the Readings on the Feast of St Philip Neri by St Augustine (354-430AD):

"Who is this stranger and neighbor if not the one who became our neighbor out of compassion?"

"The man lying on the road, left half-dead by robbers, the man treated with contempt by the priest and the levite who passed by, the man approached by the passing Samaritan to take care of him and help him, that man is the whole human race. When the immortal one, the holy one, was far removed from us because we were mortal and sinners, he came down to us, so that he, the stranger, might become our neighbor."

ON THE POSTER:

Note the shared middle eye made possible by Divine Mercy: God seeing as Humankind sees, and Humankind seeing as God sees.

By: Bishop Ambo David, DD

Wacky pose with kids in the slums in the vicinity of Birhen ng Lujan Parish in Caloocan city. They don't look like they've just lost their houses to a recent fire. Eighty-four "dwellings" in a 30m. x30 m. piece of lot were razed to the ground. With me are Fr. Luis and Fr James, two religious priests presently assigned as parish priest and parish vicar, respectively, in that parish.

They took the initiative of getting the parish community (with help from some benefactors) to help rebuild the homes of these families. On this day of their parish fiesta and mothers' day, a little break consists in a basketball league game for kids.

I am pointing at the basketball goal, with the little alley as the court. Not one sad face in the photo.
