Sanctissimi Nominis Jesu

DId you know?

And I’ll bet you didn’t. That Sanctissimi Nominis Jesu is the Feast celebrated today, the day after the Octave Day of Christmas , i.e. January Second. The Litany of the Holy Name is a simple prayer for today.

I’ve been working on some things about the church. There’s just too much out there to focus on whilst tending to the pastoral needs and the business of the Parish. (At least I finally realized that and no longer make excuses for it – we’re just busy, man!)

Below is the famous Salvos fac nos, which is the gradual from the Mass for the day. The gradual is – of course – the response said (sung by a schola during a sung Mass,) between the Epistle and the Gospel immediately before the Allelulia (if there is one, which there is, in this case.)


Ps 105:47

Save us, O Lord, our God, and gather us from among the nations, that we may give thanks to Your holy Name and glory in praising You.

Ps 144:21

May my mouth speak the praise of the Lord, and may all flesh bless His holy Name. Alleluia.

And a Chant

Most Sacred Name of Jesus, pray for us.
