Why an Ear?
St. Francis de Sales was a bishop and doctor of the Church in Switzerland in the 16th century who felt a call to participate in the counter-Reformation. He traveled throughout the Swiss countryside through all kinds of weather, facing slammed doors to minister and pass out tracts about Catholicism. He founded an order, converted many, and it is said he helped to catechize and preach to a deaf man. The ear could represent the many who wouldn’t listen to him, but also his patronage of the deaf community.
