Homily for the Solemnity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God—the Octave Day of Christmas. Indeed, today’s Gospel reading takes place in the octave day of the nativity.

“When eight days were completed for his circumcision, he was named Jesus, the name given him by the angel before he was conceived in the womb.”
