The devout repetition of the name of Jesus is the shortest, easiest, and most powerful of prayers. It’s simple to say while at work or at rest, and it is a prayer of pure love, because it is love itself.
In Wonders of the Holy Name, Fr. Paul O’Sullivan extolls devotion to the Holy Name, calling it a mine of riches, the fount of highest holiness, and even the secret of greatest happiness on earth. He asserts that “the frequent repetition of this divine name will save you from much suffering and great dangers.”
History has proved him right. Devotion to the Holy Name has delivered the Church from her enemies and even averts illness and plagues. Many of these stories are recounted within Fr. O’Sullivan’s booklet.
Fr. O’Sullivan assures us that repeating the Holy Name frequently even enables us to share in the graces of Masses being celebrated around the world.
The Mass itself is a tremendous mystery. Along with the recitation of the Holy Name, the Latin Mass is a sacred yet largely forgotten treasure of the Church.
Everything—from the silent Secret Prayers to the clear ring of the bells—holds a distinct meaning and deep value that is in danger of being discarded in many places.
