The name of Jesus is the shortest, the easiest, and the most powerful of prayers. Everyone can say it, even in the midst of daily work. Our Lord Himself has solemnly promised that whatever we ask the Father in His Name we shall receive (provided, of course, that it be for His Glory and the good of our soul).
Each time we pronounce the holy Name of Jesus with reverence and love, and with proper intention, we give great glory to God and obtain for ourselves priceless graces.
Each time we say JESUS, we may, in desire:
Make an act of perfect love, offering to God all the infinite love of His Divine Son as if it were our own.
Offer the Passion and Death of Our Lord to the Eternal Father for His greater glory and our own intentions.
Offer to God all the infinite merits and perfections of Jesus.
Offer all the Holy Masses said each day throughout the world, for the glory of God and the good of our own and others' souls.
Each time we say JESUS, we increase in our souls the virtues of faith, hope and charity. Our faith becomes more lively, our confidence in God greater, and our love more intense.
The Holy Name of JESUS saves us from innumerable evils and dangers, helps us to overcome temptations, and delivers us from the power of the devil, who is constantly seeking to do us harm.
The Holy Name of JESUS fills our souls with peace and joy, and gives us strength to bear our trials and sufferings with patience and resignation.
Each time we say JESUS, we can gain a partial indulgence which we may apply to the souls in purgatory, thus relieving and liberating many of them from their awful pains, and gaining for ourselves friends who will pray for us with incredible fervor.
We ought, therefore, to try to acquire the habit of saying JESUS, JESUS, JESUS, very often every day, with fervent love and devotion - when dressing, when working - no matter what we are doing, in moments of sadness and in moments of joy, at home, in company, on the street, when walking, riding or waiting. We can say it countless times every day, and thus gain untold graces and blessings for ourselves and for the whole world. Nothing is easier, if only we do it with all our heart.
O admirable Name of Jesus! Name most holy! to men most amiable! Name above every name. No other name is given under heaven in which we can be saved.
Jesus, honey in our mouth, melody to our ears, sweet jubilee to our hearts! O Jesus! You are our life, You are our salvation, You are our glory, to You be praise forever and ever. Amen
