    LAMP.bmp

    The Lamp is likened to our lives - empty, it is useless, filled but left unlit it is simply an ornament. The Spirit of God is within us needing the spark of God's Love to set us alight.

    FLAME.bmp

    The Flame of Love will then shine out from the lamp - God's love shines through us out to others.

     

    CROSS.bmp

    The Cross is at the Centre. The Lamp is at the foot of the Cross where we begin to live as Christians. It is an empty Cross of victory reminding us that God's Love for us is so great He gave His Son to die for us.

    RED.bmp

    The Red Background helps us to remember that Jesus' blood was shed that we might be cleansed from our sins.

    circle.bmp

    The Circle signifies God's encircling Love. To remain in that Circle we must forgive and accept others. To keep that Circle complete we each have a place in it, being loyal to God, to His Church, and to one another.

    tocrch.bmp

    The Torch of Endeavour at the top of the Badge becomes a reality if the Flame of Love burnt brightly in the lives of all Brigaders in the Circle - leaping up to set the world on fire for our Lord.

    crown.bmp

    The Crown which supports the Torch reminds us of whom we serve - no one less than the King of Kings who promises a Crown of Life to those who are faithful to Him.
