"The name Jesus was given to the Holy Child at God's command (Luke 1:31). The Holy Name is all-powerful because of the Person who bears it; we honor it because of the command of Christ, that we should pray in His Name and because it reminds us of all the blessings we receive through our Holy Redeemer. Hence St. Paul was able to write to the Philippians: '...at the name of Jesus every knee should bend of those in heaven, on earth, and under the earth' (Phil. 2:10). By means of this devotion we also make amends for improper use of the Holy Name."
