He is the patron saint of advertisers and for a long time already knew that to convey an important message it is necessary to use various means
Known as the “Apostle of Italy”, St. Bernardine of Siena is considered one of the greatest preachers of all time. Thousands of people flocked to the places where he preached. His words were so touching that the listeners immediately repented of the offenses they had committed.
Among his passions was devotion to the Holy Name of Jesus. According to the Catholic Encyclopedia, ” Bernardino convinced the parties to the conflict to withdraw their weapons from the walls of palaces and temples and to write the initials ‘IHS’ in them. (…) In Bologna Bernardino succeeded in getting a printer of playing cards, who had been harmed because of his sermons against gambling, he began to make a living by printing and selling banners with these inscriptions. Among the population, the desire to have these posters was so great that the printer soon made a small fortune . ”
Throughout the centuries, several paintings represent Saint Bernardino with banners, preaching to the people about the Holy Name of Jesus.
Due to the effectiveness of his preaching and his convincing use of visual tools to attract the crowds, Bernardino is also known as the patron saint of advertisers.
That way, if you have problems with the publicity of your business or organization, pray to Saint Bernardino de Sena. He knows that to convey an important message, you need to use multiple means effectively.
