Behind The Art - Saint John:
The dove and the heart design is meant as a symbol of peace entering our lives. Later in the Gospel of John, Jesus is very definite about the fact that this peace is of the Spirit and not of the world. In the world, He says, we will be rejected, wronged and persecuted.
Throughout every tribulation, however, we are encouraged to be joyful, to remember that the world, ultimately, is not our home, that we are visitors here, stewards, servants to our God, who tells us – in Isaiah 43:1 – “Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine”.
