St. Francis de Sales was the favorite saint of my pastor in Broken Arrow, OK.

(I will not be silenced.)
You are going to have to explain this devotion to me, P. I’m just the simple grandson of simple Greek peasants...but do I understand correctly that Jesus’ name, qua name, is an object of devotion for you Latins?
To be fair, I have to admit that I have problems with that devotion to Christ with His chest open and His heart shown in flames, but maybe that’s “iconic” after a fashion (there’s one of Panagia too, isn’t there?). But this seems very, very weird. Doubtless I am missing something and I trust you will enlighten me! :)
