It also reminds us of the Holy Bible, the Word of the Lord, which lights our way. The coconut tree, the kalpavriksha, has a message for us. Every part of it is useful to man. Similarly, we can make ourselves available to others. The tree reminds us of Christ's words nBe in the world, but not of the world. The ribbon represents the women we serve. The words Accendere Lumen means "kindle the light" The lamps lit in our hearts must kindle light in other hearts, and thus dispel the darkness of ignorance from the face of the earth.
