Oldest emblem of the Somascan Fathers

"Onus Meum Leve" and "Jesus carrying the cross" was chosen during the General Chapter of 1610 AD as the official coat of arm, or emblem for the "Ordo Clericorum Regularium a Somascha".
This image taken from a book of 1618 AD is the oldest emblem of the Order of St.Jerome.

  1. Jesus said: Come unto me you who are weary and find rest for your soul. Come to me all you who are burdened, you shall learn from me. Take my yoke upon your shoulderfor my yoke is easy and my burden , not be afraid for I will gently teach you of the ways of the Lord. What a consolation, a WISDOM, a love that the Lord Jesus has shown us. May he be loved.
