In that day, you will ask in My Name

John 16:26

And you shall be hated by all men,
for my name’s sake.

Luke 21:17

The eternal God
asks a favour of His bride:
“Hold me close to your heart,
close as locket or bracelet fits.”
No matter whether
we walk or stand still,
eat or drink,
we should at all times
wear the golden locket
“Jesus” upon our heart.

Bl Henry Suso (1295-1366)

May We Confess Your Name to the End
By St Cyprian of Carthage (200-258)
Bishop and Martyr

Father of the Church

Good God,
may we confess Your Name to the end.
May we emerge unmarked
and glorious from the traps
and darkness of this world.
As You have bound us together
by charity and peace
and as together
we have persevered under persecution,
so may we also rejoice together
in Your heavenly kingdom.
Amen

The Name of Jesus
is the purest and holiest,
the noblest and most indulgent of names,
the Name of all blessings
and of all virtues,
it is the Name of the God-Man,
of sanctity itself.

St Bernard of Clairvaux (1090-1153)
Mellifluous Doctor of the Church
