the wonders of the holy name-day six-15 july

St Gregory of Tours relates that when he was
a boy his father fell gravely ill and lay dying.
Gregory prayed fervently for his recovery.   When
asleep at night Gregory’s Angel Guardian appeared
to him and told him t.o write the Name of Jesus
on a card and place this under the sick man’s
In the morning he acquainted his mother with
the Angel’s message which she advised him to
obey.    He did so and placed the card under his
father’s head when, to the delight of the whole
family, the patient grew rapidly better.

We could fill pages and pages with the miracles
and wonders worked by the Holy Name at all
times and in all places not only by the Saints but by
all who invoke this Divine Name with reverence
and faith.
Marchese says “I refrain from relating here the
miracles worked and graces granted by Our Lord to
those who have been devout to His Holy Name,
because St. John Chrysostom reminds me that
Jesus is always named when miracles are worked
by holy men;  hence to attempt to enumerate them
would be to try to give a list of the countless
miracles which God has performed through all the
ages, either to increase the glory of His Saints
or to plant and strengthen the faith in the hearts
of men”.

Cards of the Holy Name.

The use of cards with the Holy Name inscribed
on them has been used and recommended by the
great lovers of the Holy Name such as Mgr. Andre
Dias (see page 6), St. Leonard of Portmaurice,
St. Gregory of Tours, above mentioned.
Our readers would do well to use the use cards,
carrying them about on their persons during the
day, putting them under their pillows at night and
placing them on the doors of all rooms.
