Here’s my Godgiven prayer:
“† All-loving ABBA, You will not the ‘2nd death’ of any sinner – rather, that all be converted and saved. Through the intercession of Mary Mystical Rose, St. Joseph the Worker, and all holy beings we ask You for an increase of holy workers in the Mystical Body of Christ: and as laborers for Imma¹ Mary, Mother of the Church, too. With the Holy Spirit, please do daily enspirit us to please You as true co-workers with Your Divine Son made Man and Carpenter: Christ Our Savior and Holy Lord Who is ever at work with You Above. Jesus the Worker and You Holy Spirit Enlivener² help move us to good works of prayer, sacrifice, penance and all that ABBA Father wills. For the most holier glory of God [asDg]3 – Amen! Amen! Amen. †”
¹Imma=Mom in Galilean Aramaic. ²1986 Dominum et Vivificantem #21 for ‘Enlivener’ per the H.S. Who “enlivens” Jesus as revealed in the theophany at the Jordan River. 3The acronym [asDg] goes in latin with this: All ‘for the most holier glory of God’ [asDg: ‘ad extram’ in that God ‘ad intram’ doesn’t need increase in glory in Himself, glory as He is, yet outside of Himself He loves to develop it]. This ‘asDg’ motto that Mystical Rose gave me expands a superlative adjective into a comparative extra that is quite neologistic in Latin: ad sanctissimiorem Dei gloriam, meaning for the most holier glory of God, asDg (similar to amDg – Majiorem=greater, of the Jesuit Order). From the English to the Latin: for=ad/the most holier=‘sanctissimiorem’/glory=gloriam/of God=Dei.
Also, for this Month, the name in Aramaic of Jesus the Messiah is Yeshua Meshiakah. Of course, ‘Yeshua’ got widely known the more by the Passion of Christ movie. You can love calling on His Holy Name in Aramaic, as even our SOLT founder Fr. Jim Flanagan expressed that Aramaic will likely be known by all who enter into Heaven. Why not? We can know and hear Above the original expressions that Jesus of Nazareth used on earth, and others of Him. It sounds like this: Yey-shoo-ǝ Meh-shee-yǝ-kǝ. By far the main Forename of history to express is His Name, in whatever way, too. Whereas ABBA (Father) -- the 1st Person of the Trinity -- is not a forename but a familial expression for ‘Dad.’ Still, ABBA is the greatest of expressions: Being the only ‘Originless Origin’ of All, as the writer Origen knew. The 1st Person is our only All Divine Dad, and the H.S. inspires us to “ABBA” – as in the Bible.
The Jesuit founder of the Society of Jesus, St. Ignatius of Loyola, loved the Name of Jesus. Pope Francis is our first Jesuit Pope, and he held 2014 as the Jubilee Year of the Holy Name for Franciscans and Poor Clares. It was the centenary of devotion to the Holy Name of Jesus in their Orders. They recognized that Pope Francis has great devotion to the Holy Name, and they were grateful to him for his Jubilee Year mandate. Any Litanies of Holy Names are great to PRAY this month, too – there, added right on Dec. 10 of Our Lady of Loreto (of the greatest Marian Litany in history). While not even Marian blue Sacramentaries have this Title of Hers, an imprimatured Mass for Her is on the internet. What an honor today to have celebrated that Mass on Her Feast date. One of my first international Masses was in Loreto, Italy, back in 1997. It is officially known to be half of the Holy House in Nazareth wherein the Archangel Gabriel appeared and Jesus was Incarnated via 3 Drops of Blood from the IHM into Her holy womb (as some Church officially holy mystics had learned). What a sense of the Incarnation in the Consecration at Masses, and especially there in that Loreto, Italy Basilica… in the Chapel therein with that half of the Holy House (of brick walls), which has an altar in it for Masses.
Certainly the Litany of the Holy Name of Jesus is the greatest to pray for this month. It was composed by the Franciscan St. Bernardine of Siena and is easy to find. He preached on the Holy Name of Jesus throughout Italy and drew many crowds. In the following month of Feb. 6, the Church commemorates the Jesuit St. Paul Miki and companion martyrs who were crucified in Nagasaki in 1597, including St. Passio. They were speared crying out “Jesus, Mary!” and Christian onlookers cried out the same Holy Names. What a passion they had for the Holy Names, and on their crucified ‘PASSIO’ day, too!
Have a HEAVENLY (‘on earth as it is in Heaven’), HOLY, Hearty, Happy Month of The Holy Name of Jesus Christ,
Fr. Ed, SOLT, yet MRMS too in spirit.
May Our Lady ever-flowering & overflowing with graces & blessings unfold in us The 3-Fold indwelling Divinity (of Her 3 'Roses') to ever spring, sing, & ring alive.
Amatissima semper esto Maria Rosa Mystica!
Most Beloved ever be Maria Rosa Mystica!
