“The visit of our Holy Father is to promote Love and Peace in Myanmar,” said a Statement issued by the Holy See Press Office.

Indeed, the Motto of Pope Francis’ trip to Myanmar (November 27-30, 2017) is “Love and Peace.”

“Christian Peace is founded on Love,” according to the statement. “There cannot be peace without love. Love, which the people of Myanmar value most, will pave the way to peace. The visit of our Holy Father is to promote Love and Peace in Myanmar”.

Here is the official description and meaning of the logo:

The shape of the logo is a heart. The common ground of the Christianity and Buddhism is Love. It is this concept that creates mutual respect and acceptance between the Christians and the Buddhists.

The ribbons that form the shape of the heart are two flags: one is of Vatican (yellow and white) and the other (yellow, green and red) is of Myanmar.

The map of Myanmar is colorfully painted like a rainbow. It signifies the multi ethnicity of Myanmar; it has eight  major tribes and another 135 ethnic groups with different languages, dialects and culture.

The Holy Father with a dove says that the Holy Father is the messenger of peace.
