The letters AMDG stand for Ad Maiorem Dei Gloriam, the literal translation of which is :
"For The Greater Glory Of God".

The term Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam was, and still is, the motto of the members of The Society of Jesus ( originally called The Company of Jesus ), or Jesuits, founded by St. Ignatius Of Loyola (1492-1556) in 1534.

For hundreds of years, this esoteric acronym has been used by many Catholics as either a prefix or suffix to practically any written work and, in it's colloquialism, has stood for "All My Duties to God" (AMDG).
