The EMBLEM was designed by our founder Father F. M. Greco while still a deacon in 1881: A crown of thorns, in the center of which are the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary, one transfixed and mounted by a cross, the other pierced by a sword, both of them surrounded by flames with the words: "Taste and See". Outside, at the base of the crown, the words: "Thy Kingdom Come".
This emblem is then like a synthesis of the intuition which constitutes our charism.
One love, the same will, both victims of love for all.
Flames of the love which creates, redeems, lifts up, makes divine.
THE CROWN OF THORNS:
Intimately joins the Heart of the Son and the Heart of the Mother, regenerates humanity, in the divine economy, to supernatural life. Our founder Msgr. F. M. Greco alludes to the prophet David, at flight in the cave of Adullam to underline how sweet it is, admist the cutting thorns of this miserable life, to take refuge in the Sacred Hearts.
TASTE AND SEE:
An invitation to contemplation to see and savor the marvelous richness and sweetness which are enclosed in the Sacred Hearts.
THY KINGDOM COME:
The program which polarizes all intentions and with a spirit of heroic oblation concentrates energies in the life of the Little Worker.
In the emblem described above, we find joined together the theological, spiritual, and apostolic components of our identity as Little Workers of the Sacred Hearts. In fact, it is in "The mystery of the Heart of Jesus, which in the heart of Mary was received and reproduced most faithfully and most lovingly, that the Little Worker finds the characteristic virtues. These virtues guide and model her apostolic choices and the style of her apostolate in the commitment to collaborate, within the common mission of the Church, in the restoration of all things in Christ: "Thy Kingdom Come".
