Blessing: Preview of Shield

Even though Abbot’s Mark new coat of arms will not be publicized until the distribution of the booklets for the Abbatial Blessing on Monday, the following festive banner emblazoned with the coat of arms was hung by the main doors of the abbey church on Friday.  (There are in fact two identical banners, one to each side of the doors.)  This preview allows you time to brush up on your heraldic terms, so that you can identify your “dexter” from your “sinister”, your lions “couchant,” “standant,” or “rampant” on the official blazon.
