Rorate Caeli

Winner selected! Purgatorial Society logo design contest announcement

Last month, we asked our readers to create a logo for the Rorate Caeli Purgatorial Society. For a Society that has over 100,000 souls enrolled, with over 70 priests saying regular traditional Latin Masses for their repose, it's about it time it started to look official!

We were flooded with entries, and we are so grateful to all of you who submitted your designs. We have actually chosen two different designs, each by the same person, who isn't even a professional graphic designer. She does't even want credit! But please say a prayer for Melissa for her great work and dedication to the poor souls.

Here's the new logo, with the Latin text that reads: "And may the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen."

Below, a bonus for us, is the new button on the side bar of our blog that readers can click to see all the Society posts over the years, also made by Melissa.
Thanks and God bless you, Melissa!

We also had some incredible other submissions. While we can't show them all, here's some of the best, below:
