Holy Name of Jesus
"For let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:6 Who being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 7 But emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being made in the likeness of men, and in habit found as a man. 8 He humbled himself, becoming obedient unto death, even to the death of the cross. 9 For which cause God also hath exalted him, and hath given him a name which is above all names: 10 That in the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those that are in heaven, on earth, and under the earth:11 And that every tongue should confess that the Lord Jesus Christ is in the glory of God the Father."
Remember, even in the modern Roman rite, priests and other liturgical ministers are still required to bow the head at the name of Jesus whenever it occurs in the liturgy. Sad fact that many priests decide to dispense themselves of this rule on their own authority because they think it's it 'medieval' or 'fussy'.
Pray the Litany of the Holy Name, the hymn 'Iesu Dulcis Memoria', or the Psalter of Jesus in reparation for blaspemies against the Holy Name today!
