Mortality is swallowed up of Life (based on Ⅱ Corinthians 5:4).

In the centre is the Dove of the Holy Spirit. Surrounding it is the text of two of the Beatitudes: Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God (Matthew 5:8); Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God (Matthew 5:9).
