Arms of the new Patriarch of Lisbon

Postby Marcus Karlsson » 08 Dec 2013, 13:19

On May 18 2013 the then Bishop of Porto Manuel José Macário do Nascimento Clemente was named the 17th Patriarch of Lisbon succeding HE José Cardinal da Cruz Policarpo. Clemente was installed as Patriarch on 7 July. Immediately D. Manuel III as he is now known was elevated to the Cardinalate following the Bulla “Inter praecipuas apostolici ministerii” of 17 February 1737.

The new Patriarch has quite simple arms:

The Patriarchate of Lisbon also has at present two Auxiliary Bishops.

Joaquim Augusto da Silva Mendes, S.D.B. Titular Bishop of Caliabria and Nuno Brás da Silva Martins Titular Bishop of Elvas.

Arms of Bishop Nuno Brás (da Silva Martins).

I have found no Arms for Bishop Joaquim da Silva Mendes.

The Cross carried by the Patriarch is clearly adopted from his Arms.

The new Cardinal-Patriarch…


I'm sorry but that's incorrect. I'm under the impression that the bull provides that the Patriarch will be created Cardinal at the first Consistory that occurs after he takes office as Patriarch. There have not been any consistories for the creation of Cardinals since Francis became pope. He has announced there will be one in February, 2014 and it is assumed that the Patriarch will be created Cardinal at that consistory. Until then he is not a Cardinal and is addressed as the Patriarch of Lisbon. After he is created Cardinal he will be the Cardinal-Patriarch.

As for his coat of arms all Patriarchs make use of a galero with 30 tassels. For most who are not Cardinals the galero cords and 30 tassels would be green. However, there are some archdioceses in the Church where the archbishop may wear red whether he is a Cardinal or not. Among these are Salzburg, Venice and Lisbon. Among the many extra privileges gained for the Patriarchs of Lisbon over the years by various Kings of Portugal was that of using red (originally a papal color) as well as ensigning the shield with the triple tiara. So, frequently (and because creation as Cardinal was always soon to follow) the Patriarchs of Lisbon have used a red galero with red cords and 30 tassels even before they were created Cardinals.

Yes I should have known better then trust Wikipedia. It makes sense as you write Father Guy that the must be a consitory first that can create the new Patriarch a Cardinal. Looking as his predecessor which was made Patriarch in 1998 but a Cardinal in 2001. Thanks for the correction, so I will change the Title of the Thread.

It there a special symbolism in the stars? I noticed both the Patriarch and one of the auxiliary bishops have similar but not identical stars.

I have found no explanation, but perhaps it could be the Star of Bethlehem.

A google translation of this page:http://www.vozdaverdade.org/site/index.php?id=3427&cont_=ver2

Ordained Bishop celebrated when the 2000 years of the incarnation of the Word of God , Archbishop Manuel Clemente wanted her " arms " and its motto aludissem to this mystery . The star signifies the Incarnation . Their eight-pointed remember the 8th day , the eternal life that the Father gives us in his Son by his Spirit . This star shines at the center of a cross , not only because it is the cross that fully meets the Kenosis , the emptying of the One who is God became man and took the form of a servant , but above all because the cross of Christ happened most theophany ever seen on earth : the cross fully love shines , shines the light of the new creation inaugurated by Christ, the New Adam . In cross dawns eternal day that will consummate the communion of man with God . " The same God who said of the darkness shines the light , it was he himself who shone in our hearts to shine the knowledge of the glory of God shining in the face of Christ." We saw his star . Amid the darkness , the daily cross , we see the light . In the glorious Christ , free from sin and death , we will see the LIGHT . In lumine tuo . Videbimus lumen .
