In the act of Circumcision, by divine decree, imparted first to Mary (Lk. I, 31) and then to Joseph (Mt. I, 31), the Child God received the name Jesus. The name that means the office of Savior, which only Christ, God and Man, could and should fulfill. To this name every knee in heaven, on earth and in hell bows to.
Only in the name of Jesus do we find our salvation. Let us always have this most sweet name in our hearts and lips.
Note: Celebrated the Sunday that falls from January 2 to 5; and if there’s not a Sunday occurring between those dates then it’s celebrated on January 2.
