School Motto - DOMINUS MEUS, DEUS MEUS

School Motto

“DOMINUS MEUS, DEUS MEUS”

An Explanatory Note

Rev. Stephen Tam Kwan

The motto in Latin, quoted from St. John’s Gospel, Chapter 20, Verse 28, is translated into English as “MY LORD AND MY GOD”.  This was the profession of faith by St. Thomas the Apostle, the way he acknowledged Jesus upon seeing Him after He had risen from the dead.  Through St. Thomas, Jesus has taught us that “Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe” (John 20:29).  In other words, “Blessed are those who have not seen Jesus Himself with their own eyes and yet believe Him to be the Lord of the Universe and the true God.”

St. Francis of Assisi, the Patron Saint of our School, like countless Christians down through the centuries, was “blessed” because he firmly believed in Jesus as “Lord” and “God”.  With a profound sense of humility and compassion, he followed the teaching and example of Jesus, to the point of giving up all earthly possessions and honours in looking for God as the sole God, the source of Happiness and the Goal of man’s life on earth.  That was why his own motto was: “DEUS MEUS ET OMNIA”, which in English means “MY GOD AND MY ALL”.

In adopting the above motto, our School affirms its determination to offer to prepare its students properly for their life and future responsibilities, in face of the challenges of a fast-changing world, by upholding and passing on to them the core values of Catholic Education and the Christian faith, which professes Jesus and “Lord” and “God”, and as the One who shows us our goal in life and brings us to true “Happiness”.
