O Merciful Jesus, Who didst
in Thy early infancy commence Thy office
of Savior by shedding Thy
Precious Blood, and assuming for us that name which is above all names;
we thank Thee for such early proofs of Thine infinite love. We venerate
Thy sacred name, in union with the profound respect of the Angel who
first announced it to the earth, and unite our affections to the
sentiments of tender devotion which the adorable name of Jesus has in
all ages enkindled in the hearts of Thy Saints.
Animated with a firm faith
unerring word, and penetrated with confidence in Thy mercy, we now most
humbly remind Thee of the promise Thou hast made, that where two or
three should assemble in Thy name, Thou Thyself wouldst be in the midst
of them. Come, then, into the midst of us, most amiable Jesus, for it
is in Thy sacred name we are here assembled; come into our hearts, that
we may be governed by Thy holy spirit; mercifully grant us, through
that adorable name, which is the joy of Heaven, the terror of Hell, the
consolation of the afflicted, and the solid ground of our unlimited
Oh! blessed Mother of our
Redeemer! Who didst participate so sensibly in the sufferings of thy
dear Son when He shed His Sacred Blood and assumed for us the name of
Jesus, obtain for us,through that adorable name, the favors we petition
in this novena.
Beg also, that the most
love may imprint on our hearts that sacred name, that it may be always
in our minds and frequently on our lips; that it may be our defense and
our refuge in the temptations and trials of life, and our consolation
and support in the hour of death. Amen.
JESUS! O Name of Jesus!
Sweet Name! Delightful
Name! Consoling Name!
Most amiable Jesus! Most
meek, most loving
Jesus! O Jesus, Jesus, Jesus!
O Jesus, salvation of those
who believe in
Thee! Comfort of those who fly to Thee!
O GOOD JESUS, according to
Thy great mercy, have mercy on me.
O God, Who didst appoint
Thine only-begotten Son to be the Savior
Blessed be the Most Holy Name of Jesus without end!
