    • Maria, what does the IHS stand for on the wafer? Some say it is Isis Horus Set but others say it means Jesus is Salvation for Mankind. I tend toward the first definition but only because of all of the christianizing of paganism in the RCC-but I could also be wrong…I don’t want that because then the other things written and spoken of at this blog may be disregarded over one lie.

      This is how careful we must be! Those who hate X Mass and Roman Catholicism tend to go way out in left field sometimes! Like those who think they have been duped into not observing the Sabbath-they don’t understand Christ Jesus is now their Sabbath. I want to avoid this here at X Mass Htrs as much as possible.

  1. Sherry,

    Here is what the Catholic encyclopedia – New Advent – states:

    A monogram of the name of Jesus Christ. From the third century the names of our Saviour are sometimes shortened, particularly in Christian inscriptions (IH and XP, for Jesus and Christus). In the next century the “sigla” (chi-rho) occurs not only as an abbreviation but also as a symbol. From the beginning, however, in Christian inscriptions the nomina sacra, or names of Jesus Christ, were shortened by contraction, thus IC and XC or IHS and XPS for Iesous Christos. These Greek monograms continued to be used in Latin during the Middle Ages. Eventually the right meaning was lost, and erroneous interpretation of IHS led to the faulty orthography “Jhesus”. In Latin the learned abbreviation IHC rarely occurs after the Carlovingian era. The monogram became more popular after the twelfth century when St. Bernard insisted much on devotion to the Holy Name of Jesus, and the fourteenth, when the founder of the Jesuati, Blessed John Colombini (d. 1367), usually wore it on his breast. Towards the close of the Middle Ages IHS became a symbol, quite like the chi-rho in the Constantinian period. Sometimes above the H appears a cross and underneath three nails, while the whole figure is surrounded by rays. IHS became the accepted iconographical characteristic of St. Vincent Ferrer (d. 1419) and of St. Bernardine of Siena (d. 1444). The latter holy missionary, at the end of his sermons, was wont to exhibit this monogram devoutly to his audience, for which some blamed him; he was even called before Martin V. St. Ignatius of Loyola adopted the monogram in his seal as general of the Society of Jesus (1541), and thus it became the emblem of his institute. IHS was sometimes wrongly understood as “Jesus Hominum (or Hierosolymae) Salvator”, i.e. Jesus, the Saviour of men (or of Jerusalem=Hierosolyma).

    The Isis Horus Set (Seb) connection is often made. Two years ago I read Hislop’ s book The Two Babylons and I believe this connection is mentioned there. Don’t know if this is where it originated. To quickly see if this is stated in Hislop, download a .pdf version and quickly search for IHS or I.H.S.

    Yes, we need to document carefully – so happy you do this. Lord bless your work of faith and labor of love!

    Maria
