The Feast of the Most Holy Name of Jesus
is today.
"The martyrs, the confessors of the Church, bishops, evangelists, doctors, preachers, monks, hermits, ascetical teachers,—have they not, one and all, as their histories show, lived on the very name of Jesus, as food, as medicine, as fragrance, as light, as life from the dead?" - Venerable John Henry Newman, C.O.

My online source says that his feast was on Thursday, but I have a print source which says that the feast of St. Joseph Mary Tomasi is actually today. I am particularly interested in him because he was a brilliant scholar and cardinal who was also known for his holiness of life. Sound familiar ?
