THE LCSC LOGO
There are 4 basic elements in the LCSC logo - the cross, the dove, the host and the star.
Our task is to proclaim Christ and the salvation he won on the cross. This is the LCSC basic mission of evangelization. Our desire is for all Catholics to know Christ, to live Christ and to share Christ.
Christ and his cross are at the very center of our lives and our mission. We live for Christ and we die for Christ (Phil 1:21).
The color is red, signifying the precious blood shed by Jesus on the cross, and also the call to us to lay down our very lives for the cause of Christ. It is a call to self-sacrificial love and martyrdom.
The dove represents the Holy Spirit. We are a people who live a life in the Spirit, and who are empowered for mission by the Spirit (Acts 1:8).
The color is gold. Through the fire of the Holy Spirit, we are purified (Sir 2:5). We are to be sacrificial offerings to God (Wis 3:6). We look forward to wearing crowns of gold in heaven (Rev 4:4).
The host represents the Eucharist, which is central to our Roman Catholic faith. LCSC is about mainstreaming Catholic lay evangelization.
The white color points to the purity of our lives. We are called to a life of holiness (1 Pt 1:15-16). In fact, we are to be perfect just as the heavenly Father is perfect (Mt 5:48).
The star represents Mary, who is the Star of Evangelization. She is crucial to our work of evangelization and mission, being there through salvation history, from Genesis (Gen 3:15) to Revelation (Rev 12:1-7).
The star is also a stylized figure of a person leaping and dancing with joy, with Christ in his/her heart and anointed by the Holy Spirit. We reflect the joy of Mary in our life and our mission (Lk 1:47-49).
The blue color signifies our consecration as a people to Mary.
The New Evangelization requires continued growth in Christ. There are many resources and materials available - in books, magazines, DVDs, the Internet. One does not just rely on formation courses in LCSC or the parish, but can secure these materials and move deeper into a life in Christ at his own pace.
