Happy New Year! It is January and although it feels like a fresh start, we are in the full swing of Christmastide.
The month of January is a time when Catholics around the world focus on the Holy Name and Childhood of Jesus.
This devotion is a way of honoring the name of Jesus and celebrating the mystery of his incarnation, in which he became fully human while remaining fully divine. One way we can honor the Holy Name and Childhood of Jesus during the month of January is by engaging in special devotions and prayers. These may include novenas, litanies, and other traditional prayers that focus on the name and childhood of Jesus.
"The name of Jesus is the key to the treasures of heaven; it is the password to the gates of paradise." - St. Bernard of Clairvaux
Families throughout the world focus this month on family prayers devoted to the Infant of Prague and the Holy Name of Jesus. This provides families the opportunity to learn more about the name and childhood of Jesus and to draw closer to him through prayer and reflection.
But why do Catholics dedicate the month of January to the Holy Name and Childhood of Jesus?
First and foremost, the month of January is a time we, as Catholics, are reminded of the central role that Jesus plays in our lives. It is a time to focus on His name, which is filled with meaning and significance, and to remember the great love that He has for us.
In addition to this, the month of January is also a time when we are encouraged to reflect on the mystery of the Incarnation and to ponder the profound implications of the fact that Jesus became fully human while remaining fully divine.
This is a time to meditate on the love that God has for us, and to be grateful for the gift of salvation that he has given us through his son.
"The Word became flesh to make us “partakers of the divine nature”: “For this is why the Word became man, and the Son of God became the Son of man: so that man, by entering into communion with the Word and thus receiving divine sonship, might become a son of God.” - St. Athanasius
Overall, the month of January is a time of spiritual renewal and growth for us as Catholics. It is a time to focus on the Holy Name and Childhood of Jesus, and to draw closer to him through prayer, devotion, and reflection.
Whether you are a seasoned Catholic or are just beginning your journey of faith, the month of January is a great opportunity to deepen your relationship with Jesus and to grow closer to Him.
