The Pomegranate

The symbol used by The Hospitaller Order of St. John of God and its ministries is a cross with a pomegranate. The cross symbolizes the Christian heritage of our Order; the pomegranate, which is open to allow the seeds to scatter, symbolizes self-giving hospitality to all in need.

It is with hospitality and honor that we continue the good work of St. John of God, a solider turned health-care worker in Granada, Spain, whose followers formed the Hospitaller Order of Saint John of God, dedicated to the care of the poor, sick, and those suffering from disabilities.
