VIDETE BONA DOMINI

Richard Reynolds quoted Psalm 27 at his trial. The College motto is derived from one of the verses, Credo videre bona Domini in terra viventium (I believe to see the good things of the Lord in the land of the living), It is presented in the imperative - Videte bona Domini (See the good things of the Lord). The Motto encourages us to look at the good things God has given us; to discover them across the curriculum in literature, science, art, beautiful music and so forth as well as finding the talents He has given to us and others. It has an eschatological dimension to it as well in that we finally behold God's goodness in heaven.
