The Holy Name of Jesus


We have been hearing and have been repeating from childhood the Holy Name of Jesus, but alas, many, very many, have no adequate idea of the great wonders of this Holy Name! What do you know about the Name of Jesus?

This Divine Name is in truth a mine of riches; it is the fount of the highest holiness and the secret of the greatest happiness that a man can hope to enjoy on this earth.  It is so powerful, so certain, that it never fails to produce in our souls the most wonderful results.  It consoles the saddest heart and makes the weakest sinner strong.  It obtains for us all kinds of favors and graces, spiritual and temporal.

Two things we must do.  First of all, we must understand clearly the meaning and value of the Name of Jesus.  Secondly, we must get into the habit of saying it devoutly, frequently, hundreds and hundreds of times every day.  Far from being a burden, it will be an immense joy and consolation.


The Holy Name of Jesus is, first of all, an all-powerful prayer.  Our Lord Himself solemnly promises that whatever we ask the Father in His Name we shall receive.  God never fails to keep His word.

When, therefore, we say, “Jesus,” let us ask God for all we need with absolute confidence of being heard.  For this reason, the Church ends her prayer with the words “through Jesus Christ,” which gives the prayer a new and divine efficacy.

But the Holy Name is something still greater……..

Each time we say, “Jesus,” we give God infinite joy and glory, for we offer Him all the infinite merits of the Passion and Death of Jesus Christ.  St. Paul tells us that Jesus merited the Name Jesus by His Passion and Death.

Each time we say, “Jesus,” let us clearly wish to offer God allthe Masses being said all over the world for all our intentions.  We thus share in these thousands of Masses.

Each time we say, “Jesus,” we gain 300 days indulgence, which we apply to the souls in Purgatory, thus relieving and liberating very many of these holy souls from their awful pains.  They thus become our best friends and pray for us with incredible fervor.

Each time we say, “Jesus,” it is an act of perfect love, for we offer to God the infinite love of Jesus.

The Holy Name of Jesus saves us from innumerable evils and delivers us especially from the power of the devil, who is constantly seeking to do us harm.

The Name of Jesus gradually fills our souls with a peace and joy we never had before.

The Name of Jesus gives us such strength that our sufferings become light and easy to bear.


St. Paul tells us that we must do all we do, whether in word or work, in the Name of Jesus.  “all whatsoever you do in word or work, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ…” (Col. 3;17).  In this way, every act becomes an act of love and of merit, and moreover, we receive grace and help to do all our actions perfectly and well.  We must therefore do our best to form the habit of saying, “Jesus, Jesus, Jesus,” very often every day.  We can do so when dressing, when working – no matter what we are doing – when walking, in moments of sadness, at home and in the street, everywhere.  Nothing is easier if only we do it methodically.  We can say it countless times a day.

Bear in mind that each time we say, “Jesus,” devoutly:

  1. We give God great glory
  2. We receive great graces for ourselves
  3. We help the souls in Purgatory
