Totus Tuus



I created this image as a t-shirt design a couple of years ago. I saw this beautiful auspice maria on the back of a rosary booklet and it lead me to find out more about this ancient symbol. 

The Auspice Maria is a monogram of the Virgin Mary, consisting of the intertwined letters A and M. Auspice Maria is latin for “Under the protection of Mary”.

Totus Tuus is the apostolic motto of Pope John Paul II’s papacy. It is latin for “totally yours”. The motto is a term of devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary.
