SAINT’S CORNER

St. Bernardine of Siena
May 20

Born at Massa, Italy, in 1380, Bernardine was orphaned at an early age and raised by a pious aunt who loved him as a son. As a teenager, he became a member of the Confraternity of Our Lady and often served the sick in hospitals. When the plague broke out in 1400, Bernardine, who was then 20 years old, took charge of an entire hospital and, with the help of other young men, took care of the sick during the four months that the epidemic lasted. Some of his companions died. Miraculously, he survived.

In 1402, at the age of 22 he entered the Franciscan Order. He was ordained two years later. Then for the next 12 years or so, he lived mostly in solitude, study and prayer, preaching only occasionally. Then in 1417 he felt that God was calling him to launch a career of preaching and he started his new career at Milan. Soon his eloquence and zeal attracted enormous congregations. At first he was hampered in his delivery by hoarseness and inability to make himself heard, but afterwards his voice became clear and penetrating. He would preach for several hours on a day. In large cities he often had to preach from an open-air pulpit because no church could contain the people who crowded to hear him. He denounced the prevalent vices and then set up the “bonfire of the vanities” into which people would throw all their extravagances such as paintings, cosmetics and today we would add cell phones, CDs and DVDs.

He kindled popular fervor by spreading devotion to the Holy Name of Jesus using the symbol “IHS” with rays radiating from it. Some say the “IHS” stands for the first three letters of Jesus’ name in Greek. Others say it is an acronym for Iesus Hominum Salvator (Jesus Savior of men). He would hold up this symbol at the end of his sermon and people would venerate it. It was through the influence of St. Bernardine of Siena that the name Jesus was added to the “Hail Mary” prayer.

He was given the gift of physical healing. But the spiritual healing of human hearts and souls was his most important gift. Over the years he was offered three times to become a bishop, but each time he refused with the excuse that, if he were confined to one diocese, he would no longer to able to serve so many people.

Bernardine calls us to reflect on the name of Jesus – a name of great power and peace. He called the name of Jesus the refuge of sinners, banner of the warrior, medicine of the ailing, comfort of the suffering, help of the weak, joy of the believer and glory of the saints. Rather than uttering it in a moment of exasperation, this holy Name is one we should speak quietly and reverently. It can change our life.
