Sept. 12: MOST HOLY NAME OF MARY
The Feast of the Holy Name of Mary, or simply the Holy Name of Mary, is a feast day to honor the name of Mary the mother of Jesus. It has been a universal Roman Rite feast since 1684, when Pope Innocent XI included it in the General Roman Calendar to commemorate the victory at the Battle of Vienna in 1683. The feast day began in 1513 as a local celebration in Cuenca, Spain.
Grant, we pray, almighty God, that, for all who celebrate the glorious Name of the Blessed Virgin Mary, she may obtain your merciful favor. Through our Lord.
