The episcopal motto of Bishop Estévez is “In Finem Dilexit Eos”
(“He loved them to the end”) which is taken from John 13:1. This verse, which open the story of the washing of the feet of the disciples, expresses the deep, abiding and enduring love that Jesus Christ, the humble servant of God and Savior of the world, has for all.
