Bishop of Oudtshoorn, 1983-2010

Arms of Edward Robert Adams

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

The hammer and anvil refer to the former profession of the bishop, who was an apprenticed blacksmith and worked as a wheelwright. They are also the biblical sign of brotherly co-operation as described in Isaiah 41:6-7.

The lower half shows an incense burner with clouds of incense. This symbolises the prayers to the Holy Father.

Below the shield are two ostrich feathers, a reference to the diocese and town of Oudtshoorn. They also symbolise that God cares about all creatures.

The motto means 'always ready'.
