Emblem Against Plagues

Emblem Against Plagues: This 15th century emblem of the Holy Name of Jesus that St. Bernadine of Sienna used against plagues in Italy during the time.
This sacred emblem is placed on the doors of houses for protection against the plague. It is an ancient indulgenced practice linked to The Most Holy Name of Jesus. The main devotions are illustrated in this figure: to the Most Holy Trinity, to Mary Most Holy, to St. Joseph, to the Sacred Heart and to the Immaculate Heart, to the Holy Rosary and to the Chair of St. Peter.
The use of sacred images is not superstition, but based on our Catholic faith. Although devotion to the Most Holy Name of Jesus is as old as the Church, it was popularized by the Franciscans of the 15th century, especially St. Bernardine of Siena.
