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.
