The Stars and Stripes as the symbol for "one nation indivis- ible, with liberty and justice for all," the ring as the symbol of marital love and fidelity, are known almost to everyone. The symbols of the seal of St. Rita High School have come under the eye of all its graduates, but perhaps their meanings are not too clear. These symbols are eye-words that appeal to the mind and heart by their wealth of meaning. They constitute the story behind the story of St. Rita High School, for they blend nicely the events of the live-s of two great Saints, Augus- tine, the Founder of the Augustinian Order, and Rita, the great Patrcness of the school. The center portion of the seal represents the various figures of St. Augustine. The heart burning and pierced with an arrow is symbolic of his great love for God. The crozier, cross, and mitre denote his Episcopal office. The cincture is part of the Augustinian habit, it having been given originally to St. Augustine's Mother, St. Monica, by Mary the Mother of God. The book is symbolic of the writings of St. Augustine and is particularly apropos in the seal of the school since a book in Christian symbolism has been connected with the office of teaching. The inscription "TolIe lege! Tolle lege!" calls to mind the time St. Augustine was pray- ing for light and heard the voice of the Angel repeating these unforgettable words: "Take and read! Take and read!" For in following such advice he opened the letters of St. Paul and read: "Let us walk honestly, as in the day: not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chamibering and impurities, not in contention and envy. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ." lRomans Xlll, l3, l4.J This was the final touch in St. Augustine's conversation. The Bees and Roses are symbols of our Patroness, St. Rita. The day after her baptism a swarm of bees, white as the driven snow, alighted on her lips and were seen to enter her mouth without harming her. The roses are sig- nificant of her title of "Saint of the Impos- sible," for at her request God caused roses to grow in January, something her cousin had told her was impossible. The Cascian urges St. Rita students to have this legend at hand while studying its impres- sion on their class rings. Page 7
