Did you know . . .
The letters “I H S” are a symbol for the name of Jesus. In the Greek, the first three letters of Jesus’ name are “ihv,” which in English is “IHS.” It is said that many early Christians, possibly in keeping with Jewish traditions, refused to write the names ‘Jesus’ or ‘God’ in full, so they used symbols or contractions instead. “IHS” or “IHC” is drawn from the first three letters of ‘Jesus’ in Greek.
The triad base on this Cross is said to represent three steps leading up to the cross, symbolic of the virtues of faith, hope, and love.
