The Most Holy Name of Jesus

The season of Lent brings with it a time for prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. It also allows us the time for reflection on how we have lived our lives and through reconciliation pray to the Holy Spirit to guide our daily actions to live our lives more reverently and according to God's will. During this most holy season, I challenge you to reflect on our school name, Holy Name of Jesus, to help guide our interactions with one another. In a recent pastoral letter penned by Cardinal Collins, he writes that "The Holy Name of Jesus represents our Saviour, the Lord of our lives, and makes him present. When we honour his name, we honour him, when we dishonor his name, we dishonour him." He suggests that "we should use his name reverently in prayer by praying the 'Jesus prayer': 'Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God, have mercy on me a sinner.' In addition, through the recognition that his Holy Name represent Jesus and makes him present, we can hopefully make the love of Jesus more present in our lives through the sacrifices we make for others and also how we treat one another. In the month of March as we focus on the virtue of Kindness, we need to remember that we were all born in the image of God. When we are mean to one of the members of our Catholic community we are mean to Jesus. I ask that you pray to the Most Holy Name of Jesus to guide our words and actions towards one another and that we always remember the importance of the Most Holy Name of Jesus.
