The Catholic Church’s history stems all the way back to the time of Jesus Christ.  In fact, it’s the only church in existence that does. There are over 2,000 years of Christian tradition that still influence Catholicism today, so today I’d like to touch on the tradition of the presence of statues and images inside Catholic parishes.

Monograms of Jesus. A monogram is one or more letters put together to form a symbol. Monograms date back to the first century and are among Christianity’s oldest symbols.  Monograms that are connected to Jesus Christ (Chi Rho, etc.) are called chrismons. The term chrismon comes from two Latin words Christi Monogramma which mean “monogram of Christ.” Chrismon trees, a tradition started in American churches in the mid-1900’s, is one way in which chrismons can be displayed in a church.
