Eucharistic Adoration Coming Soon!

Watch for the formal announcement in the SMM parish bulletin and here on the Latin Mass blog.

With great anticipation, Saint Mary Magdalen Parish plans to dedicate the small chapel inside the parish office building behind the Chapel with adoration hopefully to begin on March 4th.  This is the Monday before Ash Wednesday!   The Adoration chapel is planned to be open 6 days a week from Monday thru Saturday from 5:00 am to 10:00 pm for registered adorers.  Public access will be Monday thru Friday during parish office hours (8:30 am to 4:00 pm).

As Lent begins, please consider signing up for Eucharistic Adoration one hour a week!  More volunteers are needed to have a required minimum of two adorers present around the clock each day of the week to begin “Perpetual” Adoration.

To volunteer or learn more, please contact:

Devotion to the Holy Name of Jesus

Discourse on the Name of Jesus by St. Alphonsus Liguori
Vocatum est nomen ejus Jesus - His Name was called Jesus - St. Luke, 2:21.


This great name of Jesus was not given by man, but by God himself; "The name of Jesus," says St. Bernard, "was first preordained by God."  It was a new name: A new Name, which the mouth of the Lord shall name.  A new name, which God alone could give to Him Whom He destined for the Saviour of the world. A new and an eternal name; because, as our salvation was decreed from all eternity, so from all eternity was this name given to the Redeemer. Nevertheless this name was only bestowed on Jesus Christ in this world on the day of His circumcision: And after eight days were accomplished that the Child should be circumcised, His name was called Jesus. The Eternal Father wished at that time to reward the humility of His Son by giving Him so honorable a name. Yes, while Jesus humbles Himself, submitting in His circumcision to be branded with the mark of a sinner, it is just that His Father should honor Him by giving Him a name that exceeds the dignity and sublimity of any other name: God hath given Him a Name which is above all names.  And He commands that this name should be adored by the Angels, by men, and by devils: That in the Name of Jesus every knee should bow of those that are in Heaven, on earth, and under the earth.  If, then, all creatures are to adore this great name, still more ought we sinners to adore it, since it was in our behalf that this name of Jesus; which signifies Saviour, was given to Him; and for this end also He came down from Heaven, namely, to save sinners: "For us men and for our salvation He came down from Heaven, and was made Man."  We ought to adore Him, and at the same time to thank God Who has given Him this name for our good; for it is this name that consoles us, defends us, and makes us burn with love. This will form the three points of our discourse. Let us consider them; but first let us beg for light from Jesus and Mary.
