Luther's Small Catechism by Lois Prahlow

Luther's Small Catechism Banner Design by Liturgical Artist, Lois Prahlow. Png. not for redistribution.
      A flower with five petals represents the rose on Luther’s Coat of Arms. Within each petal is a golden heart (God’s love) with symbols of five of the six chief parts of Luther’s Small Catechism: the Ten Commandments, The Lord’s Prayer, The Lord’s Supper, Holy Baptism, and The Creed. The sixth chief part, The Office of the Keys, is represented in the center of the flower. Between the petals are blue flowering waters each marked with a Chi Rho (Greek monogram for Christ). The elongated form of the monogram suggests the Sword of the Spirit, the Word of God. Drawn to the Cross in the water of Baptism (blue arrows), the repentant sinner is gathered in, forgiven, cleansed, and sent forth with the good news of the Gospel into all the world (dark golden arrows)! “YES” is the believer’s response to God’s love and call in these mighty teachings of the Spirit (red flames)! article and design by Lois Prahlow
