Memorial of the Most Holy Name of Jesus

“If you think the name ‘Jesus’ continually, it purges your sin and kindles your heart; it clarifies your soul, it removes anger and does away with slowness.  It wounds in love and fulfills charity.  It chases the devil and puts out dread.  It opens heaven, and makes you a contemplative.  It puts all vices and phantoms out from the lover.”

by English Hermit Richard Rolle, The Form of Perfect Living and other Prose Treatises
