Vatican releases logo, motto for trip to Chile in January 2018

(Vatican Radio)  The Vatican has released the official logo and motto for Pope Francis’ Apostolic Journey to Chile, which takes place on 15-18 January 2018.

The Pope visits Chile ahead of his trip to Peru on 18-21 January.


“My peace I give you” is the motto for his visit to Chile, taken from the Gospel of John 14:27.

A communique from the National Commission for the Apostolic Journey says the motto is “recognizable by all, Catholics and non-Catholics”.

“The Pope with this visit exhorts all to a ‘culture of encounter’, favoring a climate of unity for the Chilean people,” it reads.


The logo contains the three central elements of the Apostolic Journey: the Cross, the Pope’s signature, and the map of Chile.

White and red colors recall the Vatican flag, while “Chile 2018” is colored red and blue following the country’s flag.
