"It's all yours"

Totus Tuus

It borrows the pastoral motto of St. John Paul II, which is inspired by the teachings of Saint Ludovico of Montfort. It is an expression of giving up everything to Jesus through the Virgin Mary. The original text written by Saint Ludovico is “Tuus totus ego sum, et omnia mea tua sunt” (I am completely yours and all of me are yours). "Through Mary, I am completely the Lord's, and everything I have is the Lord's."

Crest of the Monastery of Monte Oliveto Maggiore.

The olive tree signifies the spirituality of the Jeongju, who stays in the Lord forever in a humble attitude, and the cross signifies the spirit of martyrdom, the driving force of religious life in the early century.

It symbolizes Mary, the example of Christians. Mary, who gave birth to Jesus Christ, is also the mother of all the monks who follow the Lord.


It symbolizes Rosario's prayer, meditating on Mary's life and faith. I promise to offer a rose every day to my mother, Mary.
