Fr. Cerqueira Alexis Trujillo shared with us the logo he prepared for the 400 years of the Vincentian charism.
Explanation of the logo:
It is built from a basic figure: the circle ... (the world, history, life, etc. ...) This circle is formed by different lines that constitute rays in different colors (red, green, blue)...
These lines or rays symbolize the congregations, groups, associations founded from the Vincentian charism. They also symbolize society with its imperfections and joys, hopes and strains...
This circle is a link between two stars that remind both "theological places" where Vincent de Paul saw the footprints of God in his life and through n his words have become major events: Folleville-Gannes and Châtillon sur Chalaronne.
The stars: Their place reminds the location on the French territory. They are linked by a cross of light that recalls the Resurrection and Pentecost.
The cross reminds us that it is always a sign of a new Spirit that inhabits us and invites us to live as Vincentian Family in our world, reason for which the face of Vincent is at the intersection of the cross.
