January 1, 2021 – Feast of the Holy Name Theme: “Feast of the Holy Name” Homily by Fr. Andy Illustre Old Testament Proclamation: Exodus 34:1-8 Responsorial Psalm : Psalm 8 New Testament Proclamation: Romans 1:1-7 Gospel Proclamation: Luke 2:15-21
This new year reminds us of our covenant with Jesus, that He is Emmanuel – our God with us.
We are in covenant with Jesus, that we may use the authority that He has given us against the works of the devil and against the works of darkness. Because we are His heirs, we are bearers of His Name. As we enter 2021, do not be afraid of what this year holds because we are walking in the authority of Jesus’ Name. Greater Is He that is in me than he that is in the world, continue to be steadfast against the work of darkness.
Be steadfast with your covenant with God. Therefore remember, Who You Are in Christ this coming New Year. Do not feel defeated but speak against any circumstances in His Name. Remember that God is with us, and in Him there is victory and we are overcomers. In His Name, there is no darkness.
