Catholic Activity: Revering His Holy Name

Celebrate this beautiful feast day in a way that instills a greater reverence within your children for the Holy Name of Jesus. Make reparation for society's frequent misuse of His Name!


On the feast of the Holy Name we renew our resolution never to offend God by the abuse of His name, and we use Psalm 8, in praise of God's name, for our prayers that night.

Psalm 8

O LORD, our Lord,
how awesome is your name through all the earth!

I will sing of your majesty above the heavens
with the mouths of babes and infants.

You have established a bulwark against your foes,
to silence enemy and avenger.

When I see your heavens, the work of your fingers,
the moon and stars that you set in place—

What is man that you are mindful of him,
and a son of man that you care for him?

Yet you have made him little less than a god,
crowned him with glory and honor.

You have given him rule over the works of your hands,
put all things at his feet:

All sheep and oxen,
even the beasts of the field,

The birds of the air, the fish of the sea,
and whatever swims the paths of the seas.

O LORD, our Lord,
how awesome is your name through all the earth!
