The logo of the Marian Movement of Priests in the United States has a highly symbolic meaning. In the center of the logo are intertwined two letters: the "P" (our Lady's head which is covered with the veil), and the semicircle across the "P" which together form an "X". Unlike our English letters, in Greek the "X" is "CH" (chi - the 22nd letter of the Greek alphabet), and the "P" is "R" (rho - the 17th letter of the Greek alphabet.)

M.M.P. Logo Chi-Rho

Together they form the "Chi-Rho" which represents the first three letters of the word Christ, a symbol often used by the early Christians, and still seen today on various liturgical objects.

The half circle that crosses the "P", forming the "X", symbolizes the world -the globe. Look at Mary's hands. With the one hand she holds the world and presses it against her heart; and, with the other she protects the world and all humanity that was given to her by Jesus her Son, shielding it from harm and evil.

Finally, the two hands are shaped in the form of an "M", with the "P" in the middle. These initials - MMP - are the abbreviation for the Marian Movement of Priests.

It was the plan of the Father to have Jesus and Mary work together for the redemption of mankind. Mary gave Jesus his human nature so that He could accomplish redemption by means of his suffering, death and resurrection. Thus the logo is meant to symbolize this intimate union that exists between Jesus and Mary.
