IHS ~ Holy Name of Jesus

The simplest form of devotion to the Most Holy Name of JESUS is the devout, loving recitation of that Name above all names.  Each time you whisper His precious Name ... "Jesus" ... let it be a loving invocation to your Divine Savior and Lord.  You can even make it part of a short prayer, like "Jesus, I love You!", "Praise You, Jesus", and of course, Jesus, Son of God, have mercy on me! (a form of the Jesus Prayer).

Prayer for the Feast of the Holy Name - January 2

Lord Jesus, we humbly pray You to give us all a great reverence and respect for Your most holy name. Forgive us for ever having used the name of Jesus in vain, or without due respect.

Help us remember how reverently and lovingly Your Mother Mary used the name of Jesus, and how humbly Saint Joseph called You and spoke to You by name.

Your name, dear Jesus, is above every other name in heaven or on earth, because You are the Jesus, the Savior of all men. You have saved us, and You have told us to ask God anything in Your name, and it would be granted.

We ask You, humbly and confidently, to bless us and our work, and give us the rich treasures of Your divine grace, without which we cannot even so much as pronounce the name of Jesus. Amen.

The Jesus Prayer - a Prayer of the Heart

This prayer has its origins in the new testament and is very familiar to the ears and eyes of those who love scripture.  See the prayer petitions of the tax collector's prayer (Luke 18:13) 'God, be merciful to me, a sinner' and (Mark10:47), Baritmaeus, who totally trusted Jesus cried out, 'Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me'.

Variations of these prayers have a recorded history of use since the 6th century.  It has traditionally been used in its many forms by members of the Orthodox Churches (Eastern, Russian, Greek).  In recent years , it has become a more widely used prayer by members of various christian churches, both Protestant and Roman Catholic. We are called to 'pray without ceasing' and this simple prayer is easy to remember. Because of this, it allows one to reach a deeper level of prayer.

Early Christians made several variations of this prayer which became know as the Jesus Prayer. It has come down to us in three forms:

1. "Lord Jesus Christ have mercy on me."

2. "Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner."

3. "Lord Jesus Christ, by the prayers of Our Lady, have mercy on me."

The Jesus Prayer is said on each bead. Traditionally prayed as one inhales (first part of prayer) and exhales (second part of prayer).

For special intentions, you may substitute the name of another who is sick or in need of special prayers.

"Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on ......."

When this prayer becomes somewhat automatic the next step is to move the prayer from the head to the heart. One does this by trying to focus the prayer on their heart.  The prayer itself is an act of humility calling out for God's merciful help.

For some wonderful insights on the Jesus prayer from the Orthodox perspective, see Saying the Jesus Prayer , by Albert Rossi.

Prayers for the Reparation of Blasphemy

How sad it is for a Christian to hear Jesus' sacred Name used as a common swear word.

Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain: for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that shall take the name of the Lord his God in vain. -Exodus 20:7

Here are some prayers we can say when confronted by such blasphemy.

Chaplet in Praise of the Blessed Virgin,
in Reparation for Blasphemy

The Chaplet in praise of the Virgin Mary is prayed on the standard Dominican Rosary of 59 beads.

At the beginning of the Rosary, the "Creed" and "Our Father" is replaced with:

Mary, my Immaculate Mother, I desire to offer thee reparation for the offenses which thy Immaculate Heart receives from the horrible blasphemies which are uttered against thee. I offer thee these praises to console thee for so many ungrateful children who do not love thee, and to console the Heart of thy Divine Son Who is so deeply offended by the insults offered to thee.

Receive, my Purest Mother, this little act of homage. Make me love thee more each day and look with pity on those blasphemers that they may not delay to cast themselves into thy maternal arms. Amen.

At the beginning of each decade, on the large bead:
Grant that I may praise thee, O Holy Virgin!
Give me strength against thy enemies!

On the 10 small beads:
1. Blessed be the Great Mother of God, Mary Most Holy!
2. Blessed be her Holy and Immaculate Conception!
3. Blessed be her Glorious Assumption!
4. Blessed be the Name of Mary, Virgin and Mother!
5. Blessed be her Immaculate Heart!
6. Blessed be her Virginal Purity!
7. Blessed be her Divine Maternity!
8. Blessed be her Universal Mediation!
9. Blessed be her Sorrows and her Tears!
10. Blessed be the graces with which the Lord crowned her Queen of Heaven and Earth!

At the end of each decade:
Glory be to Mary, Daughter of the Father!
Glory be to Mary, Mother of the Son!
Glory be to Mary, Spouse of the Holy Spirit!

Final Prayer:
My Mother, I love thee for those who do not love thee; I praise thee for those who blaspheme thee; I surrender myself to thee for those who will not recognize thee as their Mother. (5 times)

The above praises were published in Peru with the Imprimatur of the Archbishop of Lima on October 26, 1953.

" Golden Arrow"

This prayer is said to have been revealed by Jesus Himself to a Carmelite Nun of Tours in 1843 as a reparation for blasphemy. He said,

"This Golden Arrow will wound My Heart delightfully, and heal the wounds inflicted by blasphemy."

May the most holy, most sacred, most adorable, most mysterious and unutterable Name of God be always praised, blessed, loved, adored and glorified in heaven on earth and under the earth, by all the creatures of God, and by the Sacred Heart of our Lord Jesus Christ in the most Holy Sacrament of the altar. 1

Imprimatur - T. J. Toolen, Archbishop of Mobile-Birm.

Act of Reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, animated with a desire to repair the outrages unceasingly offered to Thee, we prostrate before Thy throne of mercy, and in the name of all mankind, pledge our love and fidelity to Thee.

The more Thy mysteries are blasphemed, the more firmly we shall believe them, O Sacred Heart of Jesus!

The more impiety endeavors to extinguish our hope of immortality, the more we shall trust in Thy Heart, sole Hope of mankind!

The more hearts resist Thy Divine attractions, the more we shall love Thee, O infinitely amiable Heart of Jesus!

The more unbelief attacks Thy Divinity, the more humbly and profoundly we shall adore It, O Divine Heart of Jesus!

The more Thy holy laws are transgressed and ignored, the more we shall delight to observe them, O most holy Heart of Jesus!

The more Thy Sacraments are despised and abandoned, the more frequently we shall receive them with love and reverence, O most generous Heart of Jesus!

The more the imitation of Thy virtues is neglected and forgotten, the more we shall endeavor to practice them, O Heart, model of every virtue!

The more the devil labors to destroy souls, the more we shall be inflamed with desire to save them, O Heart of Jesus, zealous Lover of souls!

The more sin and impurity destroy the image of God in man, the more we shall try by purity of life to be a living temple of the Holy Spirit, O Heart of Jesus!

The more Thy Holy Church is despised, the more we shall endeavor to be her faithful children, O Sweet Heart of Jesus!

The more Thy Vicar on earth is persecuted, the more will we honor him as the infallible head of Thy Holy Church, show our fidelity and pray for him, O kingly Heart of Jesus!

O Sacred Heart, through Thy powerful grace, may we become Thy apostles in the midst of a corrupted world, and be Thy crown in the kingdom of Heaven. Amen. 2

The sweet name of Jesus produces in us holy thoughts, fills the soul with noble sentiments, strengthens virtue, begets good works, and nourishes pure affections. All spiritual food leaves the soul dry, if it contain not that penetrating oil, the name Jesus. When you take your pen, write the name Jesus: if you write books, let the name of Jesus be contained in them, else they will possess no charm or attraction for me; you may speak, or you may reply, but if the name of Jesus sounds not from your lips, you are without unction and without charm. Jesus is honey in our mouth, light in our eyes, a flame in our heart. This name is the cure for all diseases of the soul.

Are you troubled? think but of Jesus, speak but the name of Jesus, the clouds disperse, and peace descends anew from heaven.
Have you fallen into sin? so that you fear death? invoke the name of Jesus, and you will soon feel life returning. No obduracy of the soul, no weakness, no coldness of heart can resist this holy name; there is no heart which will not soften and open in tears at this holy name.
Are you surrounded by sorrow and danger? invoke the name of Jesus, and your fears will vanish. Never yet was human being in urgent need, and on the point of perishing, who invoked this help-giving name, and was not powerfully sustained. It was given us for the cure of all our ills; to soften the impetuosity of anger, to quench the fire of concupiscence, to conquer pride, to mitigate the pain of our wounds, to overcome the thirst of avarice, to quiet sensual passions, and the desires of low pleasures.

If we call to our minds the name of Jesus, it brings before us His most meek and humble heart, and gives us a new knowledge of His most loving and tender compassion. 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. To think of Jesus is to think of the great, infinite God Who, having given us His life as an example, has also bestowed the necessary understanding, energy and assistance to enable us to follow and imitate Him, in our thoughts, inclinations, words and actions.

If the name of Jesus reaches the depths of our heart, it leaves heavenly virtue there. We say, therefore, with our great master, St. Paul the Apostle: If any man love not our Lord Jesus Christ, let him be anathema (I Cor. 16:22).
