St. John Henry Newman—On the Name of Jesus
This is a listener-supported podcast! Thanks for your help!
“Thus when we would know who God is, we answer: Jesus.”
We’ve got a shorter episode for you today: notes from a sermon Newman gave on the Holy Name of Jesus, ordinarily celebrated by the Church on January 3 but which in 2021 is superseded by the Solemnity of the Epiphany.
Still, the Holy Name of Jesus ought be particularly reflected upon at this time of year. The Name of Jesus is, after all, what really makes the new year new: 2021, the Year of Our Lord—who makes all things new.
As Newman observes, the Holy Name sums up in Itself the whole history of salvation.
