Bishop’s Coat of Arms
The Heart, the Cross and Ave Maria
Meaning of the Motto:
It has a dual significance. First the Good News about the Love of God is at the heart of the Gospel. God’s Love transforms us; it engenders hope in our life. God’s Love conquers all fears and evil. God’s love makes impossible things possible. God’s Love is the main drive of our mission of Evangelization.
Secondly, “Deus Caritas Est” is significant as the very First Encyclical letter of Pope Benedict XVI. As the First Bishop appointed by him to Cameroon, I wish to associate and unite my entire pastoral ministry with the blessing, guidance and solicitude of the Holy Father. All my pastoral engagements will be inspired by the love of God and with total allegiance to the Successor of Peter.
Symbols of the Coat of Arms
Heart: The heart is the traditional symbol of love. It is the pierced Heart of Jesus and stands out to show how much God loves us.
Cross: True love is incomplete without the cross. Love conquers all because Jesus out of love died on the cross. To truly love we must die on our own daily crosses so that new life may be born in each human heart.
Ave Maria: Love is born into the world through Mary. She remains our model of what it truly means to be loved and to love. My ministry of love of God will be trusted to her maternal Care and Protection.
Colours: Silver and Blue.
