Bishop of Nashville

Monday, the Most Reverend David R. Choby will be ordained and installed as the new Bishop of Nashville. Bishop-elect Choby has been our pastor since we moved to Sumner County over 15 years ago, and he has been a pastor in every sense of the word. Pope Benedict XVI has blessed the Diocese of Nashville by giving this man to the diocese as Bishop. We, at St. John Vianney Church in Gallatin, are pleased and proud, but also a little sad about sharing our treasure with the rest of Middle Tennessee.

We had a great party for Father/Bishop-elect Choby last night. In the process, I learned the design of his new episcopal coat-of-arms. I am sure that a better version will be available soon, but in the mean-time, here is my inadequate rendition.

What is the blazon for the dexter and sinister sides?

I don't have the official heraldic blazon available. The dexter side (shield's right-viewer's left) are the arms of the Diocese of Nashville. Clearer versions of those arms can be seen on the diocesan web site at

The sinister side, at the top (chief) has three blue six pointed stars, emblematic of the Magen David--three representing the three stars of the Tennessee flag, the Magen David because the bishop's first name is David, and blue for the Blesed Virgin Mary, to whom the bishop has a particular devotion. The lower, primary charge is, or course, the Irish harp of Brian Boru on green. The bishop's mother's family were of Irish descent. The indented or dancetty partition is meant to represent the moutains of Slovakia, the homeland of the bishop's paternal ancestors.
