    It's Latin for "The hope of the harvest is in the seed."

    It may well have begun with the Papacy:

    "The papacy has the motto: Spes messis in semine - which means "the harvest in the seed." In other words, she was willing to sow a seed, knowing that it would only bear fruit many years later."
