The month of January is dedicated to the Holy Name of Jesus.
"In the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those that are in heaven, on earth and under the earth" (Phil 2:10).
Christ's name is chosen in heaven, and the Angel Gabriel announces it when he informs the Blessed Virgin of the incarnation: "Behold thou shalt conceive in thy womb and shalt bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus".
It is a name that has marvelous implications, for it means "savior."
The very name bespeaks the magnitude of His mission, His infinite love, a love that will cause Him to offer Himself up for us.
Verse of the Day:
"Yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary."
