    So very happy to see you are back, Father! Your previous blogs and interventions-past have been a key factor in our start in embroidering coats of arms on church vestments. This new blog, we hope, continues to be a beacon of inspiration as already it hints to be. Many happy returns and a joyous Eastertide.

    Dear Fr. Guy Selvester,

    I stumbled upon your blog .. very inspiring!
    I may be interested in the development of coat-of-arms.

    In the love of Jesus through Mary,

    Dear Fr. Sylvester,

    Whenever it is convenient for you, would you please share with me the artists that emblazoned your arms? If you only have time for one, I am most interested in the arms on the top row left side.

    Thank you.

    In His Service,

    Fr. Courtney Fleenor

        I really like that version of your arms as well. The late Richard Crossett and John Ferguson are two of my favorite heraldic artists. Like you, my love of heraldry began when I was a teenager.

        I believe you did a writeup on the development of your arms, beginning with arms that you designed when you first became interested in heraldry and continuing through the development of your arms shown above. Is that still posted somewhere on the internet?

    Dear Fr Sylvester, I wish to ask you some questions about my coat of arms. I wish to draw my coat of arms, embracing both my surname’s symbols as well as some religious symbols, mainly connected with Our Lady, St Paul and St Nicholas of Bari. Would you be so kind as to help me? The motto I have chosen is NIHIL AMORI (CHRISTI) PRAEPONERE – taken from The Rule of St Benedict (ch 4, proposal 21).
