The letters IHS form the monogram of His holy name; they are derived from the Greek six-letter word for Jesus, thus the first three letters are; Iota, Eta, Sigma,so the monogram should not be used with periods after the letters. From The Catholic Encyclopedia. It is likely this person is a Father of the Church, of Byzantine rites.jenny
