The Prayer Triangle in the Great Hall of the Casa

The triangle is a symbol of significance at the John of God Casa and the Casa de Dom Inácio in Abadiánia, Brazil. Historically, the triangle is one of the oldest spiritual symbols, used as the Star of David, the Serifah, the Shaktona, the Seal of Solomon and also representing the Trinity.


At the Casa, it is a symbol extended to us to help to easily connect to the Divine. Each side of the triangle represents the spiritual attributes of Faith (Fe), Love (Amore), and Charity (Caridade). The center symbolizes Divinity.


John of God says, “The triangle symbolizes the sacred family and the center is the ever-present One God.”
