Why we love what we do
Arma Lucis, "Armor of Light" in Latin, is a clothing company offering everyday clothing that shares the Good News brought forth by Christ and the teachings of the Catholic Church.
Inspired by St. Paul's epistle to the Romans 13:12: "The night is advanced, the day is at hand. Let us then throw off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light."
Arma Lucis is committed to designing clothing that empowers Christians to spread the Gospel as instructed by God himself in Matthew 28:19, "Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit." Yet, our mission is also to empower Catholic Christians to help spread and clarify the teachings of the Catholic Church as Christ promised that the gates of Hades will not prevail against it; Matthew 16:18-19, "And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it. I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven."
As the world turns more secular daily by removing God from all aspects of life, it is not only our calling but our obligation to spread the Gospel. To non-believers, we hope to share the Good News of our Lord. To non-Catholic Christians, we hope to clarify the teachings of the Catholic Church which are often misunderstood and separate us; we have more in common that unites us.
We do not represent the Catholic Church, we are lay Catholic men and women who are inspired to convey her teachings.
Arma Lucis focuses on designs that are thought provoking, our hope is that the semi-obscure message would initiate conversations with others about Christianity and Catholicism. The designs and colors are generally simple in nature to embrace the Christian message of humility.
Absolutely not. We have found that many non-Catholic Christians also appreciate the message we are bringing to the world. Our focus:
We wish to spread, not withhold, the Good News Christ brought
We wish to defend, not impose, the teachings of the Church
We wish to unite, not divide, the Body of Christ.
To us, all that put on Armor of Light declare Christ as the only begotten Son of God who was made flesh to die for our sins.
