From "The Saint Andrew Daily Missal" (1937)
In the Name of Jesus let every knee bow of those that are in heaven
(angels) on earth (men) and under the earth (devils).
The Church, having made known to us the of the divine
Son, now unfolds to us the glories of His Name.
Among the Jews a child received his name at the rite of Circumcision.
For this feast the Church uses the same Gospel as that of the
Circumcision, emphasizing the latter part which records that "His
Name was called Jesus" (Gospel). The name means Saviour and we read :
"There is no other name under heaven given to men, whereby we must be
saved. " (Epistle) The origin of this feast goes back to the 16th
century, when it was already observed by the Franciscan Order. In
1721, during the pontificate of Innocent XIII, its observance was
extended to the whole Church. If we wish to "see our names written in
heaven under the glorious name of Jesus" (Postcommunion), that name
must be often on our lips here below.
