Embroidery of the tablecloth for the altar
Tablecloth for the altar with two types of embroidery, one for the front of the tablecloth and the other for the two side faces.
The embroidery of the front of the tablecloth for the altar is a construction with various liturgical items.
This embroidery is composed of a golden chalice and a Sacred Way with flashes that represents the body of Christ. The Sacred Way is embroidered with the JHS. The symbol JHS is a modern adaptation of the IHS Latin which in turn comes from the abbreviation of the name Jesus in Greek letters upper case: IHCOUC. The expression is composed of the Greek letter iota (I: our i Latin, is written the same), eta (which is written in uppercase as our H: transcribed and is pronounced e) and C by their resemblance is transformed into a sigma (ς) (our s). It is believed that it was St. Bernardino of Siena, who in the FOURTEENTH century gave the name more meaning to each letter, turning each a in the initials of a phrase: Iesus (or Jesus in the present) Hominum Salvator, which most experts translate as ' Jesus Saviour of Men.
The embroidered center of the tablecloth for the altar is supplemented with two symmetrical figures that surround the golden chalice and the Sacred Host. You're figures are composed of several elements eucharistic.
The first of them is a vine-branch with green leaves and grapes gold that evoke the Eucharist and the wine as representing the Blood of Christ: "Take and drink ye all of it, because this is the chalice of my blood, the Blood of the new and eternal covenant which will be shed for you and for all men for the forgiveness of sins. Do this in remembrance of me".
The second element are ears of corn with kernels golden to represent the Eucharistic Bread and the Body of Christ: "Take and eat, all of you, for this is my Body which is given for you." Both parts are joined by a loop.
The embroidery of the two lateral sides of the tablecloth for the altar is the golden chalice with the Sacred Host with flashes that can be seen in the front
