12.) St. Joseph Shrine Diocese of Cubao

We have prayed twice in St. Joseph Shrine Diocese of Cubao which is located near Anonas LRT2 Station. In front of the church is a commissioned Jubilee Door presenting traditional Christian Symbols. The artist behind the Shrine’s holy door wants to give a subtle classical vibe to cold and almost clinical surroundings, with the help of traditional Christian symbols. The design has to be fitting with the modern look of the church’s present interior which has a brutalist architectural theme. With touch of Art Deco (circles, diamonds, symetrical shapes, straight & smooth lines), the use of simple and less complicated symbols and shapes are reflected in the overall concept of the holy door’s design. The quatrefoil shapes represent the 4 evangelists of the bible: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. The fleur-de-lis within the quatrefoil shapes give significance to this year of St. Joseph. The cross is the symbol of Christianity.
