The mitre (aka the pointy hat) over the shield gives it away as a diocesan shield, either Catholic or Episcopal. The Alamo and the Lone Star give it away as being Texan, and probably related to San Antonio. Frankly, the design looked to me to be more consistent with other Episcopal arms than Catholic ones, so I started by finding the website of the Episcopal diocese that includes San Antonio, and voila
-- there it was on the homepage
. The I googled "Diocese West Texas motto" and found this
, which describes the whole design.
It really took longer to type this than it did to find all this on the web.
