What’s In A Name?
The month of January is dedicated to the Holy Name of Jesus.
At this Name, all the powers of heaven and even those of hell kneel in reverence. It is, as St. Paul says, a Name that is above every other name, a Name infinitely more holy, more wonderful, more revered, and more powerful than any other name.
It is incredible that God not only reveals to us His Name, but encourages us to use it, call upon it, and pray with it and through it.
If we keep this Name in our hearts and on our lips, we possess a shield and sword that no evil can overcome.
Join Fr. Jeffrey Kirby for the January edition of our Year of Devotions series, where he will be your guide in exploring the wonders of the Holy Name, why we honor it in January, and how we can incorporate this devotion into our daily lives.
What Is A Year of Devotions with Fr. Kirby?
Throughout the year, the Church offers us not only her glorious feast days, but entire months of devotion built around those feasts.
By means of these devotions, she nourishes and enriches our faith, pours out special graces upon our souls, and lifts our minds to the contemplation and love of the eternal truths of our Faith.
Here at Good Catholic, we want to bring you the monthly devotions of the Church in all their beauty and splendor. So we partnered with Fr. Jeffrey Kirby—host of our beloved Morning Offering podcast—to bring you a monthly miniseries introducing you to each and every one of these devotions.
How Does A Year of Devotions Work?
Throughout 2024, we’ll be releasing one miniseries a month focused on that month’s devotion. Each miniseries will consist of five 15-minute videos from Fr. Kirby.
We won’t be sending you reminder emails as with our other series—you’ll have access to all five videos at once and you can go at your own pace. Watch a video a day, a video a week, or just go ahead and binge watch them all at once!
One thing to note is that you must subscribe to each month individually. We’ll have the current month’s miniseries listed at the top of our Series page and other months listed at the bottom. Check out the full calendar of topics below!
