2013 is Here!

Today is New Year's Day.  On the church's calendar, it is also the Feast of The Holy Name -- the day when we remember Joseph and Mary taking Jesus to the Temple to be circumcised.  See Luke 2:21-38.

Heavenly Father, you gave to your incarnate Son the holy name of Jesus to be the sign of our salvation:  Plant in every heart, we pray, the love of him who is Savior of the world, our Lord Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, in glory everlasting.  Amen.  -- Collect of the Holy Name
