How to Begin the Year

"The Church begins the year with the name of Jesus....

... Let us place this name on our lips and in our hearts."  - Dom Marmion


  1. Dear Nancy,

    I hope that your Christmas and New Year celebrations were filled with joy. And now we celebrate the Holy Name of Jesus, the Name at which every knee should bend of those in Heaven, on earth and under the earth. It saddens me when I see so few people who bow their heads at the Name of Jesus as I was taught to do as a child. I continue the practice to this day. It is a small way to the Name of Jesus in an era when so many use His Name in vain, as an expletive, rather than giving it the honor it deserves. Let us dedicate ourselves to promoting reverence for His Holy Name.

  2. A perfect way to start the year, Nancy! I love how you put Jesus' name in all the pics!

    1. Thanks to all of you, Melanie and Judy and Mary! Judy, I bow my head too at the Name of Jesus. Thanks to the Sisters who taught me, it became second nature. I consider it an honor to be able to bow at His Name. And Mary, I loved putting His Name in the pics!
