January – the Month of the Holy Name

The Church has entrusted to us the role of promoting devotion to the Most Holy Name of Jesus from the very earliest days of our Order. January is the month dedicated to the Holy Name, and one way of marking this devotion might be to recite the Litany of the Holy Name during this month of January.
