Most Holy Name of Jesus

Today is the Memorial of the Most Holy Name of Jesus.
It is days like this that modern Catholics usually forget or brush aside as just an archaic bit of trivia from a church that, in their mind, no longer exists. But if we make such days a part of our lives, if we teach them to our children, then our faith becomes more alive, more real, and more of a constant presence rather than a once a week obligation. It says a lot when parents recognize a feast or memorial or solemnity even when they are not required to. It tells the kids, “Here is something important.” Even if we can’t, for work reasons, be at Mass today, we can still make it special.
Here is the Litany to the Most Holy Name of Jesus from the EWTN website. I will be teaching it to my kids tonight:

O Lord Jesus Christ, You have said, “Ask and you shall

be opened to you.” Grant, we beg of You, to us who
ask it, the gift of Your most divine love, that we may
ever love You with our whole heart, in word and deed,
and never cease praising You.
Give us, O Lord, as much a lasting fear as a lasting
love of Your Holy Name, for You, who live and are
King for ever and ever, never fail to govern those
whom You have solidly established in Your love. R.
Amen.
