ORIGIN OF TIBI DABO STUDIO
Summer of 2013
We [Sara and Morgan] first met in college because of our passion for the Catholic faith and our budding architectural studies. We studied abroad together in Barcelona and it was there we discovered Mount Tibidabo, a beautiful mountain overlooking the city and the shores below. This breathtaking view along with the works of Antoni Gaudí inspired us both to use design as a means to express the beauty of God.
We hope Tibi Dabo Studio brings the truth, beauty, and goodness of the Faith to your home and everyday life.
ORIGIN OF "TIBI DABO"
Mount Tibidabo & St. Peter's Basilica
Our favorite spot in Barcelona was the view from the Sacred Heart Basilica on Mount Tibidabo. Named by locals because it's said to be the mountain where Satan tempted Jesus* (and if you’ve ever seen it, you may just agree). The same words are inscribed in the dome at St. Peter’s Basilica quoting the Gospel of Matthew** where Christ gave Peter the keys to the kingdom.
Latin: et dixit illi haec tibi omnia dabo si cadens adoraveris me
English: And said to him: All these will I give thee, if falling down thou wilt adore me.
**Matthew 16: 18-19
Latin: Tu es Petrus et super hanc petram aedificabo ecclesiam mean et tibi dabo claves regni caelorum.
English: And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven.
